Evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of neurodivergent, unique learners of all ages who have been struggling and suffering in interpersonal relationships, in the workplace, in schooling and at home. The greatest needs are to explore and develop alternative methods to learn more effectively, develop competence and confidence and experience greater success. Typical problems might include executive functioning, learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder which may occur by themselves or in combination.
A lifetime of experience with executive functioning, learning disabilities and ADHD provides a strong foundation to understand and treat unique individuals who are struggling in school, work and home relationships. Evaluation and treatment are provided in a supportive atmosphere, welcoming all individuals with a no nonsense approach that includes humor.
I look forward to beginning a thoughtful, engaging, and confidential conversation with you that leads to discovery, personal growth and healing. Many painful problems you may be struggling with can be improved with hard work, new understanding and insight into present and past circumstances.
