Neuropsychological evaluation and consultation for learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADHD, concussion, traumatic brain injury, dementia, anxiety, and depression.
I strive to provide clinical services that are practical and informed by research. I do not employ a receptionist or any other support professionals. Therefore, when you call, I will always be the one that answers the phone. I am thorough and collaborative. Typically, I obtain information from multiple sources as appropriate including parents, partners, spouses, teachers and other healthcare professionals (e.g. physicians) with your consent. This allows me to develop a more comprehensive understanding of what is causing you or your family member's difficulties and how I can better help you.

I have designed my experience to encompass a broad range of issues so that I could develop a " true family practice". This has enabled me to comfortably and knowledgebly address most concerns that I face with my clients. I also believe that a therapist should be educated in all treatment approaches and use as many as needed to address each client's concern. I believe each treatment should be " custom designed" for each client to reflect the individuality of the client and presenting problem.

When feeling overwhelmed, depressed or anxious, the process of finding a therapist can seem like a daunting task. Your energy is low, you have little motivation, and you don't feel like talking to anyone. Somehow, despite all of that, you're expected to sort through a list of strangers and choose one that you are going to open up to. It seems counterproductive. It's not. You've taken the first step by deciding that it's time... that enough is enough... and that you need to talk to someone. Hopefully, that someone is us.

Education and Learning Disabilities Therapists

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
