I view Therapy as a very human process, as well as a very sacred one. As your therapist, my goal is for our conversations to offer a sense of relief and perspective, while helping foster healthy self-exploration and personal growth. On this journey I often discover that specific problems seem to play a recurring role in people's lives. These problems typically undermine the person's confidence, and dampen their enjoyment of life and all of its possibilities.

Is your child struggling with reading, writing or math? I diagnose DYSLEXIA, DYSGRAPHIA and DYSCALCULIA. I provide screenings and full evaluations. Screenings are more affordable and provide much needed data about your child's learning style and needs. Screenings usually take one testing session and a consultation afterwards to review the results. Full evaluations take several sessions and provide a thorough, detailed report. I also consult and advocate with parents and students on the IEP process/504 plans. Check out our website to learn more of the TUTORING, TESTING, and THERAPIES that we offer: www.thescholarsgrove.com

Navigating through life can at times be challenging. Life stressors may bring forth a myriad of emotions that can be overwhelming and debilitating. Past hurts may intrude and impinge on your way of adapting and succeeding in life. Through psychotherapy, I aim to provide you with a safe space that would allow for a deeper understanding of the challenges you encounter and its impact on the areas of your work, school, and relationships. The safe space that we would work together to create will  make way for collaborative reflections and discoveries through self observations, self attunement, and self awareness.
