My practice is focused on neuropsychological and educational assessment of children and adolescents. Evaluations are individualized for every child, but commonly test for learning disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and other mental health conditions (depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, etc.). Regardless of any diagnostic labels, assessments seek to illuminate your child’s strengths, identify areas of challenge, and provide specific, evidence-based recommendations to support their success in school and beyond.

This-is-important! It won’t go away when you turn your back. It won’t sort itself out while you distract yourself with other things. You may well need a hand in resolving things but only YOU can take the first step and ask for that help, which we are all PERFECTLY allowed to need sometimes. Resilience isn’t about never being angry, sad, fearful or guilty. It is about knowing how to respond appropriately.

While some individuals enter therapy with acute distress and specific problems that need to be addressed; others have a more vague feeling of discontent. In either case, the self-exploration of analytic work is meant to expand the way one thinks and feels. Learning to think creatively is one way to describe the goal of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. WIth guidance, an individual learns to hold the tension of multiple perspectives/emotions resulting in a flexibility of thinking that involves both analytic and imaginative parts of the mind. This "full thinking" can be applied to personal life issues, relationships and creative pursuits.
