I am also a PA Certified school psychologist and I have worked extensively conducting psychoeducational evaluations and providing therapeutic support for students with ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, and emotional issues.
It is so important to work with a therapist with whom you can trust and feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings. I believe that my relaxed interpersonal style will allow you and/or your child to establish that sense of trust. I use both cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic interventions and tailor the therapy to meet the needs of the individual client. I practice with warmth, respect, and dedication. I am experienced in treating children, adolescents, and adults. My specialized interests include anxiety, depression, stress reduction, separation anxiety, grief, self-esteem issues, and life transitions.

Regardless of learning style or circumstances, our thoughts can define and limit ALL of us.
If you’ve found your way here, there’s a good chance you’re considering making a change in your life, beginning a new endeavor, searching for way to help someone you care about, or simply feeling “stuck”. The struggle IS real and it could be happening at home, at work, at school, in an important relationship, or within yourself. No one said life would or should be easy. But I believe that with the proper support and some hard work, every individual is capable of great things. As an award winning educator, counselor, coach, author, and mentor I have the skills, patience, and resources to help you change your life.

I have been working, for over 15 years, with warmth and compassion, to help late adolescents and adults find concrete, useful strategies that feel authentic to their life so that they can reach their goals.

My approach involves bringing change about from the inside out. We will work towards understanding how the problems that brought you here developed, what they mean, and the purpose that they serve. This approach goes beyond simply treating symptoms and strives to help you make changes that are deeply-rooted and long-lasting. It has been proven that the therapeutic relationship actually creates healthier connections in your brain. In younger children this deeper type of therapeutic change is often accomplished through therapeutic play. Play is the natural language of children and allows them to express their thoughts and feelings.

My work presumes that "the soul should always stand ajar" (Dickinson). Whether you walk within a religious tradition or not, I can help you to draw on the resources of your own spirituality as the focus of your self-work or as a supplement to therapy. Some seek pastoral counseling with a particular concern in mind: for instance, you're having trouble finding a spiritual path, reconciling it with your sexuality, integrating it in relationships, or channeling it in your work or vocational discernment. Others seek spiritual direction out of a desire to share with someone, regularly, what is happening in the depths of their inner lives.

The process of finding a psychologist who is a good fit for either yourself or a family member can be overwhelming and frustrating. I make it a point to ensure that clients who reach out to me feel heard and understood. Therapy can only be effective if it is a collaborative process in which clients feel they have a say in their own treatment. I mainly practice from a cognitive-behavioral perspective (CBT), but I also use other modalities in sessions in order to best meet the needs of my clients.

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.
