Stephanie Hullmann, PhD
I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in pediatric health. I utilize evidence-based practices, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, to help children cope with chronic illness and symptoms. My goal is to optimize child health, functioning, and quality of life. Caregivers play an important role in how children cope with their illnesses so I frequently involve parents in treatment and support their adjustment to their child’s illness as well.
I currently collaborate with the Section of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition at Riley Hospital for Children. I see patients with gastrointestinal and liver complaints both at Riley Hospital for Children and at IU North Hospital. I also serve as a psychology interventionist on an AHRQ-funded R24 study comparing the effectiveness of including pediatric psychology consultation to standard care in the Gastroenterology subspecialty clinic.
