About

Child and Adolescent psychologist. Ph.D. in Child/School Psychology from an APA-accredited program at McGill University, Montreal, Canada in 2005. I specialize in neuropsychological, psychological, developmental, and psycho-educational testing. Testing is performed for the purposes of diagnosis & treatment planning. I give "understandable" reports with comprehensive treatment plans, referrals to health professions (S&L, OT, PT, & psychiatrists), home-based & school-based recommendations. I equip parents to engage their children in interventions at home, empowering parents to take charge of their children's challenges. I also provide brief screening and treatment recommendations as an alternative to comprehensive testing.
I am experienced in the testing and treatment of neurocognitive disorders (e.g., ADHD), developmental (Autism) & genetic disorders, as well as trauma, abuse, and attachment issues. I strive to remain up-to-date with the newest treatments, testing tools, & research pertaining to childhood disorders to help caregivers make informed choices for their children.
Other services include: Forensic evaluations in child protection matters, custody evaluations, parental fitness evaluations; Career/aptitude testing with vocational consultation; cognitive & diagnostic testing for adults; traumatic brain injury; expert witness testimony. I collaborate with attorneys & special education attorneys, social workers, therapists, psychiatrists and school personnel to provide comprehensive case management.
