About

I am a licensed and board-certified rehabilitation psychologist with a sub-specialty in clinical neuropsychology with over 10 years of experience working in a wide variety of clinical settings. In addition to providing comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations that assist with diagnostic clarification and treatment planning I also employ evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness based techniques, and cognitive rehabilitation to help individuals and families cope with the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral sequelae typically associated with neurological conditions.
My approach with both assessments and interventions is forward-focused, patient-centered, and guided by the personal goals, values, and multifaceted uniqueness of my patients. Individuals and their families/caregivers are engaged early on to maximize their adjustment to the disability, and to minimize secondary health complications.
My experience, work ethics, dedication to my clients, as well as my clients' resilience, openness to treatment and hard work have led to meaningful outcomes amidst their often life changing experiences. I look forward to working with you.
