Accepting Patients:

"Being part of the process of improving the lives of children and families is my passion. I truly appreciate the chance to help children and families tackle issues that are stressful and challenging by figuring out approaches that are both effective and manageable."


Dr. Freeman is proud to see patients at the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center (CDRC), and is the program director of the IDD Behavioral Pediatrics Treatment Program.

Dr. Freeman specializes in behavioral health care of kids, working with youth with and without special health care needs. Specifically, he directs the Behavioral Pediatrics Treatment Program, which focuses on toileting problems (for example, bed wetting, soiling, and toilet training), tic and habit problems (like hair pulling, skin picking) and behavior problems in young children (such as tantrums, noncompliance, bedtime and sleep issues). He also provides care to children with more complex behavioral challenges, including severe defiance/noncompliance, aggression, self-injury, anxiety, and other similar difficulties. Emphasis is on practical, goal-oriented approaches designed to address presenting problems.

In his spare time, Dr. Freeman enjoys cycling, hiking, and spending time outdoors with friends, family, and his dogs.
