I specialize in learning disabilities, attention disorders, developmental disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, emotional/behavioral disorders, and giftedness.
Children, adolescents, young adults, and their families may require psychoeducational evaluation for many different reasons. Is your child struggling in school and you're wondering why? Does your child require testing for private school admission? Does your adolescent or young adult require an evaluation for accommodations on SAT, ACT, GRE, or other standardized testing? My goal with every client is to develop a full and complex profile of strengths and weaknesses through psychoeducational evaluation so that their families and schools may provide them with the support and enrichment that they need to meet their potential.

I conduct extensive psychological testing evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults, to identify potential learning disabilities, attention or memory problems, or social-emotional difficulties.
I believe that healing occurs within the context of a relationship. Through a trusting, therapeutic relationship, one is given the opportunity to see things in a different light. My goal, as a therapist, is to help people identify what they would like to change in their lives and how to work toward this change.

What works? What isn't working? Learning new skills, finding ways to approach challenges differently, expanding our social repertoire, renewing motivation to take on changes in the environment, and making changes in our existing patterns is something that behavioral therapy, and behavior analysis, can help anyone with.
We have vast potential. Our growth, our goals, and our successes begin with our behavior. Reaching that next step, exploring new social situations, relationships, and challenges in our life respond to how we act. We sometimes face difficulties in our lives, and overcome personal barriers. We find difficulty in making hard choices, seeing opportunity in our day to day lives, meeting new people, and exploring new interests and stepping out of past routines. Growth can involve trying something completely new, facing something that is aversive to us, or engaging with others in ways we are not used to.

As a Licensed Social Worker my goal is to empower individuals and promote human potential. My experience includes working with dually-diagnosed children and adolescents, many of whom are navigating life transitions, behavioral challenges and emotional distress; as well as adults who are feeling challenged by life’s hurdles. I am a strong advocate for individual empowerment, but also look to how we can grow through our eco-systemic support systems. I enjoy working with families, and often find that through focusing on the relational dynamics people can increase connection and find the support they need to feel emotionally empowered.

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.
