As a pediatric neuropsychologist I provide comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations to children, adolescents, and young adults. I specialize in evaluation of of autism, social, and self regulatory problems as well as learning disabilities, attention disorders, and medical conditions such as epilepsy, traumatic brain injuries, and genetic disorders. I also provide ongoing individual and family consultation and support, including assisting families navigate the transition to adulthood. I also assist with implementation of treatment plans and school placement decisions, attends school meetings (including IEP and due process hearings), and conduct forensic evaluation and expert testimony in cases that involve autism spectrum disorders.
I am passionate about supporting individuals to reach their potential. I believe that we all want to be happy, healthy, and productive, and we strive to have a life that is fulfilling, possess a desire to form close connections with others, and want to contribute to family, friends and community.
I believe all parents deeply desire to give their children the psychological, social, academic, and practical tools - and the emotional resilience and perseverance - necessary to arrive at adulthood ready to live independent, productive and fulfilling lives. I work with parents and families collaboratively to achieve these goals.
