I provide diagnostic assessments that find the reasons that explain the difficulties, and provide necessary recommendations.

I have nearly 20 years experience identifying the root cause of learning struggles. I provide screenings and full evaluations for all areas of educational disability, including Dyslexia, Autism, and Intellectual Disabilities. Follow up counseling and recommendations help clients maximize learning potential. Knowing how to navigate school resources can be intimidating. Maybe you've already tried and felt defeated by the process. I specialize in helping learners understand their own strengths and weaknesses. Better understanding brings relief and knowledge of how to advocate for appropriate accommodations and services in school and college. I also offer gifted IQ testing and counseling for anxiety in high achieving students.

There comes a time in people’s lives where what they have done isn’t working and they want to develop new coping skills. I feel I can help aid in that transition. I feel it's important to build rapport and trust with a client and not be stuck in only one form of modality, be flexible and utilize what the client may need at that time.

Problems are solved in the present moment so my focus involves learning how to deal with past regrets and future worry.
Sometimes we want change because we are suffering, or stuck, or we’d like to be happier. Maybe we’d just like to be a better partner or a better parent. Regardless of the motivation, the work is to become the best version of ourself, i.e. a fully functioning adult. Old habits, reactions,emotions, and limiting beliefs keep us repeating old patterns. Recognizing and healing the wounds that underly the patterns frees us to know what is best for ourself. And when we know that we can move forward and we are able to be generous in relationships with those we love.

The most common questions that require a psychological assessment include getting a mental health diagnosis, determining learning or intellectual deficits, and understanding symptoms.
Life can change in an instant. What was once predictable, safe, and familiar is gone and we are left with the unknown. Life transitions, both big and small, require support. Some are easily manageable while others cause us to forget who we once were. In my practice I focus on working together to again find equilibrium. Sometimes we can't be who we once were but it absolutely does not mean we cannot discover who we are now or who we want to be in the future.
