About

I am passionate about working with individuals with High Functioning Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and PDD-NOS to achieve increased social skills, insight, social thinking and quality of life. I also work with individuals that are not on the spectrum, specifically anxious and depressive disorders. My clinic, Spectra Therapies, has a team of psychologists (PhD, PsyD), counselor (LPC), interns, and speech language pathologist (SLP) that provide various evaluations, therapies, and advocacies. My team and I provide evaluations for ages 18 months through late adulthood. We specialize in autism evaluations.
I provide evaluations and treatment. Common conditions that I help with are depression, anxiety, executive dysfunction, obsessive thinking and difficulties with change and transitions. In addition to individual treatment, I also provide social skills groups for individuals with Asperger's Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, PDD-NOS, ADHD, and social anxiety.
I aim to provide understanding, support, and interventions uniquely tailored to each client and family members. This includes working with and coaching parents, siblings, and spouses of the client. In family sessions I provide education, understanding, and support to the family members to help facilitate the client's goals.
