I am a developmental neuropsychologist who specializes in diagnostic evaluations and therapy with infants, toddlers, preschool and school aged children (ages 0-10). I believe that a thorough neuropsychological evaluation leads to proper intervention which can help a child overcome a wide range of developmental, behavioral, and learning problems. I will walk you hand in hand through the evaluation and treatment process and follow your child over time to ensure that he/she makes progress and doesn't "fall through the cracks." I will develop a treatment plan for your child and help parents, providers, and teachers put services into place and recommendations into action.

Many people find me because something they are doing has become larger than they want it to be and is no longer working. It could be technology use (my special interest), substance use, pornography, working, or gambling, among many other things. Often these behaviors show up when people are experiencing stress, interpersonal conflict, insomnia, sadness, anxiety, existential crises, self-doubt, self-criticism, or the pain of high self-expectations, and so our work focuses upon these topics as well. I work with teenagers and adults in individual therapy, including some joint family or couple sessions as needed to support loved ones.

Although I was trained psycho-dynamically I have found over time that a variety of treatments have become increasingly useful in my work. I want the client to be a part of the treatment choice and plan. I do not want to just provide a service, but to help educate the client in order to help them become more independent in their future treatment needs. I feel; that no two clients fit the same box, as the client comes in and begins to open up about what has lead them to therapy, the treatment I use changes accordingly.

Loneliness is the most common - and most heartbreaking - complaint that I hear, and I frequently hear it from both partners even when there is a lot of anger. I work on repairing connection - not on who is right or wrong. I am trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) which is a focused, validated, time limited treatment strategy which helps couples heal the wounds that have hurt their connection
