I specialize in conducting neuropsychological evaluations for children and adolescents. However, I am NOT taking clients for therapy at this time. The evaluations I conduct are invaluable to parents who are trying to understand their child's learning style and their learning strengths and weaknesses. Often, parents seek my help when they are concerned about their child's ability to achieve his/her potential in school and/or regulate his/her behaviors or emotions. My reports have been crucial tools for many parents in securing academic accommodations for their children both in the state of Massachusetts and elsewhere.

As a Developmental Neuropsychologist, I conduct assessments aimed at understanding suspected learning challenges or social-emotional struggles in order to help the families identify and access the proper supports.
Young people's lives are now moving at a faster pace; they encounter more complexity and demands with each day. Thus, they find themselves more overwhelmed than ever before. I will work with you in a collaborative and respectful manner to identify meaningful targets that can be gainfully addressed.
