    Dr. Wilson is associate professor of Pediatrics in the division of Child Development at the Medical College of Wisconsin. She is the staff psychologist within the International Adoption Clinic at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. In this role, she provides support to families at all stages of their adoption journeys, including pre-adoption education, initial consultation following a child’s immigration, school-age assessment, and child/family therapy. She is an adjunct staff to the Wisconsin-based TIES program, a heritage travel experience for children and families. 

    Though her clinical specialty is in the unique psychosocial development of children adopted internationally, she also has clinical expertise in the mental health needs within domestic adoption and foster care. Dr. Wilson has completed specialty training through the University of Wisconsin – Madison to support the unique social-emotional development of infants/toddlers. She serves as a clinical consultant to the University of Wisconsin Infant, Early Childhood, and Family Mental Health Certificate Program and provides reflective supervision to Early Head Start home visitors within Waukesha and West Bend, WI.
