Background

Dr. Paige Seegan is an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She serves as the Director of Behavior Medicine Services for the Division of Pediatric Nephrology and Pediatric Dialysis Program. Dr. Seegan specializes in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and young adults with acute and chronic medical conditions. Dr. Seegan utilizes various modalities of evidence-based practice including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Parent Management Training (PMT), Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to assess and treat medical nonadherence, anxiety, depression, sleep, weight-management, and behavioral challenges in patients with acute and chronic illness. She enjoys consulting and working closely with multidisciplinary treatment teams to help promote adherence to medical regimens and patient and family coping with pediatric chronic illness and related disabilities.

Broadly, her research interests are focused on the multi-level factors that contribute to disparities in pediatric health outcomes, as well as ways to improve access to high-quality care. She received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Texas Tech University and completed her predoctoral internship training at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
