My work at Brainsight centers around helping people learn more effectively, whether they are children or adolescents in a school setting or adults in the workplace. I specialize in the identification and treatment of problems with attention, learning, and memory. The ability to pay attention and remember things is integral to learning and working. If you are easily distracted, have difficulty focusing your attention, suffer from a poor memory, or struggle to learn new things, you may benefit from an evaluation. Some individuals also benefit from counseling or coaching, and others benefit from training programs for memory or executive functions.
