  • As a psychologist in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology/Blood & Marrow Transplant, Dr. Bingen collaborates with the multidisciplinary treatment team, community programs and agencies, and schools to provide comprehensive supportive care to children, adolescents, and young adults diagnosed with cancer and other blood disorders. She takes a family-centered approach such that psychological services are provided to the patient’s parents and siblings, in addition to the patient, to help them cope with family stress related to the cancer burden. Because of the importance of continuity and accessibility of psychosocial care when facing the stress of cancer and other blood disorders, psychosocial care is often provided in the clinic and at bedside in the hospital from diagnosis through survivorship care. The primary goal of psychological services is to facilitate or build upon the patient’s and family’s coping strengths and social support system to help them manage the stress of the cancer diagnosis and treatment.
