I evaluate autism and development; identify strengths and difficulties in learning and processing abilities; administer neuropsychological tests of executive functioning, language, and memory; and assess for ADHD, mood/behavioral difficulties, personality traits, and more.
Life presents many challenges for children and adults alike. While everyone's experience is different, I believe there is always a path of healing to be found. I use specialized assessment tools to help individuals understand their cognitive, behavioral, and mental health, identify accurate diagnosis, and discover individualized treatment options and interventions. My approach is always research supported and tailored to your specific needs. I account for each person's unique experience when designing an assessment that answers your questions and provides guidance for improving life satisfaction.

Coming out as transgender and moving out into the world as a transgender person can be both frightening and overwhelming. Having a safe place to express who you are and not feeling rejected but affirmed and validated, may be the first step in your journey to embrace yourself identifying as transgender or questioning. Whether questioning or uncertain, transitioning or have transitioned, having a safe place, and a warm and compassionate person who understands your journey of expression is the beginning of living and expressing yourself to your very fullest potential as a transgender person while moving within the greater communities.

Growing up in a household where family members suffered from mental health diagnoses and addiction, I was able to see firsthand the need for more support and counseling for people who experience trauma, grief, and distress in living. Throughout the course of my studies and obtaining an undergraduate degree at Springfield college, graduate degree in mental health at Walden university, and a Delaware board certification in alcohol and drug counseling, i have been able to recognize the concept of beauty for ashes and how cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and motivational interviewing (MI), can change how a person perceives themselves

Autism Therapists

What is the most effective treatment for autism?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has come to be considered the standard treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder, and research has confirmed its effectiveness for many children. Therapists trained in ABA techniques work with children (and their parents) on developing social skills, communication and learning abilities, and everyday habits of hygiene and grooming. The clinician will tailor their program to the child’s particular need but the overarching goal will be to help them advance as far as possible toward independence based on their level of symptoms and decrease the need for additional special services. Families should seek a mental health professional specifically trained in ABA, and holding special certification in the technique, who has extensive experience not only with the approach but in using it with children with the same level of symptoms as the child who needs care.

How does ABA work?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) sessions, which typically focus on positive reinforcement, can be intensive, lasting two or more hours several times a week, and continuing for two years or more. Therapists can also be expected to ask parents to take an active role in reinforcing lessons. Research has found that the technique can lead to major improvements that decrease the need for additional special services.

How does treatment for autism work?

Therapy sessions based on Applied Behavior Analysis will likely be frequent, intensive, and highly structured. After a thorough assessment, a therapist will help a child understand and develop skills in a range of areas, including communication, motor skills, social skills, self-care, play, and academic skills, as well as routines of daily living like hygiene. Typically, the therapist will help a child break down the components of a behavior—often referred to as the antecedent (what prompts an action), the behavior, and the consequence(what immediately follows)—and then reward the child at every step, while also asking parents to reinforce the lessons, and the rewards, throughout the day. This core therapy may be supplemented by occupational or speech therapy, and antidepressants, antipsychotics, and anticonvulsants may be prescribed to address specific severe symptoms.

How long does therapy for autism take?

Some people with autism spectrum disorder may be engaged in some level of therapy for many years, but research shows that treatment will be most effective if it is begun early and delivered intensively. When therapy begins by age 3, children tend to be better able to grasp and adopt the skills needed to manage everyday life, including attending school and establishing social relationships. This type of early-intervention treatment regimen is highly structured, typically involving 20 to 40 hours of one-on-one therapy per week, along with additional hours of engagement managed by parents, for a period of two years of more, although the duration of treatment is dependent on the child’s level of symptoms and pace of progress.
