Understanding your child's strengths and weaknesses can help prepare your child for success. I perform psychoeducational testing in the form of neuropsychological evaluations, assessment of learning disorders (including ADHD), social/emotional evaluations, autism evaluations, and personality assessments to facilitate treatment of children, adolescents, and young adults. Assessments are individualized in order to develop a greater understanding of each person and how they can expand on their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. I also provide therapy, utilizing cognitive behavioral techniques, while being mindful of how early attachment experiences influence later relationships.

My background and experience with very young children to teenagers and children with autism spectrum disorders help me truly tailor my approach to each individual.
Children's developing brains and the many supports naturally built into their lives (parents, siblings, teachers, etc.) make them perfect candidates for intervention when they are experiencing difficulty. If you are concerned about your child, as a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist, I can identify strengths and needs and develop a plan for intervention that addresses multiple influences within your child's life, including home and school. I am most adept at working with children with developmental delays/disorders, anxiety, learning difficulties, behavioral issues, and executive functioning deficits (such as attention difficulties).

With 30 years of communication diversity experience, I designed a "Genuine Inquiry" approach for adults with Aspergers Syndrome, mild autism, or similar neuro-diverse presentation that affects communication.
Did you know that the most important part of communication is INVISIBLE! It’s more than words, gestures, and tone. It's called “mentalizing.” Mentalizing is a genetic brain network used for making sense of what people say--It helps us understand the mental states of others and thus, know how they might respond to us. Genetic variations in this brain network can lead to great skill or mild to severe difficulties in communication effectiveness. A person can have average to superior intelligence and still have difficulty understanding the mental states of others. Connection with others may be difficult to establish or preserve.
