Dr. Kao works closely with patients and families and a multidisciplinary team of clinicians to address pain coping. With such an intimate connection between mind and body, pain can affect many aspects of life, including school, sleep, family, and friends. Dr. Kao works with patients and parents to help them utilize non-pharmacological techniques for management of discomfort and provides individualized treatment for stress, anxiety, and/or depressive symptoms, etc., which can be so closely tied to experiencing pain. Her interests include traumatic stress and coping, pain and multicultural influences.
