About

I offer comprehensive neuropsychological and educational evaluations for ages young children through late adulthood. We provide diagnostic clarity for individuals with complicated symptom presentations. Our clients include individuals with Neurological issues, ADHD, Dementia, Concussion, Post-concussive Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, anxiety, depression, psychotic symptoms, tics, OCD, eating disorders, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), sensory integration difficulties, Lyme and other Tick Borne Disease (TBD; Babesia, Bartonella, Ehrlichiosis, Anaplasmosis). Many clients have a constellation of physical/medical challenges in addition to MH issues.
I utilize a holistic, integrative approach considering physical complaints, medical illnesses, mental status, emotional difficulties, environment/relationships, diet, and other lifestyle factors. Recommendations are provided for mental health, cognitive health, education, and occupations. Holistic recommendations are also provided including alternative treatments, exercise, supplementation, and lifestyle changes.
Evaluation data and reports are confidential and are not shared with anyone besides our clients. Individuals and client families decide whether to share their reports with treatment providers, counselors, and school personnel. When warranted, recommendations for student IEP's and/or 504 Accommodations are provided.
