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.

I am the personal trainer of the mind. If you're not controlling your thoughts, then they will control you! People focus daily on making their bodies healthy, but what about our minds? If we don't train our brains to focus on having a positive outlook, then our brains will get out of shape similar to the body. Hence, anxiety, depression, and all sorts of other mental and emotional issues. The mind is like a muscle, and you need to program it with skills that you can utilize daily. If you are ready, you can take control of your internal person and become your highest self! You deserve to experience peace, joy, and happiness!

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).

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.
