Hello and welcome to my profile! I am a child psychologist with expertise in developmental and psychological evaluations and child, family and parent-child therapy. I work with children and families of diverse backgrounds seeking guidance for the following behaviors: school refusal, behavior problems at home or school, academic/learning problems, distractibility/impulsivity, highly sensitive or emotional reactions, problems with peer relationships or in the parent-child relationship, and traumatic experiences. Families come to me to understand if their child may meet criteria for the following diagnosis: Autism, AD/HD, Learning Disability, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Anxiety or Depression.

My approach is collaborative and relational in nature involving both parents and child. I feel it is an honor to work with your family. As such I am caring, playful, and always respectful of you and your child's views and wishes.

Most children and families I see are working hard, trying the best they can with the tools they have. My role is to help you and your child discover the right tools to quickly and efficiently unlock your child's (and your family's) natural strengths and potentials.
