Do you struggle with worrying more than you would like? Is your mood lower than you would like it to be? Are you overwhelmed by the challenges of work or school, relationships, and family? Perhaps you are finding parenting more challenging than you had imagined or would like to find someone to talk with your child or adolescent. I have experience with a variety of clinical issues including anxiety, depression, adjustment difficulties, parenting challenges, trauma, adoption and attachment issues, LGBTQ and women’s issues.

If you are wondering about how you or your child best learns and functions at home, school, work or friendships, then a neuropsychological evaluation may help you adjust the environment, processes, or relationships that are blocking optimal performance. Working together, we develop a set of questions to answer, for example, "How should my child be taught?" "Why do I have difficulty focusing on my work?" or "Why does my child melt down?" then, through interview, testing, and consulting, we can develop a deep understanding of mental, physical, and emotional strengths and weaknesses that can inform an effective treatment plan.
