I specialize in conducting neuropsychological evaluations for children and adolescents. The evaluations I conduct are invaluable to parents who are trying to understand their child's learning style and their learning strengths and weaknesses. Often, parents seek my help when they are concerned about their child's ability to achieve his/her potential in school and/or regulate his/her behaviors or emotions. My reports have been crucial tools for many parents in securing academic accommodations for their children both in the state of Massachusetts and elsewhere.

I completed my predoctoral internship and postdoctoral training years at the world renowned Yale Child Study Center. There, I specialized in assessing and treating developmental disabilities such as autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, childhood depression and anxiety, and thought disorders. I also have extensive experience in evidence-based methods for parenting challenging children.

I take the time to get to know you and your child. Parents often communicate their gratitude about seeing a clinician who finally "gets" their child. I pride myself on capturing and communicating those aspects of children that mere test scores and report cards do not.
