About

I am a licensed psychologist with vast experience in diagnostic evaluations of children, adolescents, and adults. I hold faculty appointments at Stanford's Department of Psychiatry and at the Palo Alto University/PGSP-Stanford Consortium where I teach adult and child assessment to doctoral students. In my practice, I offer a variety of evaluation options to help you understand your, or your loved ones, strengths and challenges as well as their root cause. The purpose of these evaluations is two-fold: to present a "full picture" understanding of a person, and to provide individualized strength-based recommendations.
I welcome referrals for ADHD, learning disabilities, work or school accommodations, IQ testing, developmental disorders, psychological concerns, treatment-resistant conditions, giftedness, personality testing, cognitive decline, and others. I also work with individuals who want to learn more about themselves, their strengths, and their challenges.
Trained in child and adult assessment, I adopt a lifespan perspective that acknowledges that development never ends. I consider the critical changes in all stages of life and interpret them in their context. I am cognizant of how multiple identities (e.g., gender, ethnicity/race, religion, sexual orientation, disability status) intersect to shape us.
