About

Hello, I have a passion for working collaboratively with adults, adolescents and children who may be experiencing distress or who simply seek greater fulfillment in life. I believe deeply in the importance of connection among individuals, families, communities, nature, and spirituality towards promoting resiliency and healing. I have worked extensively with young adults, children and adolescents who have suffered anxiety, depression, educational difficulty, trauma and loss.
I specialize in assessing intellectual, emotional and neuropsychogical functioning (a.k.a., psychological testing). If you are curious or concerned about you or your son's or daughter's academic performance, and want a comprehensive, thorough assessment of current functioning and potential, please call me for a free consultation.
For 2 decades, I have trained interns and ran therapy and assessment seminars. I specialize in child, adolescent and adult academic, intellectual and emotional assessments. I recently created a CAPIC Intern training program. Currently, I am only taking clients in need of comprehensive psychological assessment and not therapy.
