Biography

Dr. Freeman is proud to see patients at the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center (CDRC). 

Dr. Freeman specializes in behavioral health care of kids. He sees 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, completing rides with names like the “Torture 10,000” and “the Death Ride”; hiking; and spending time outdoors with friends, family, and his dogs.
