My specialty is in helping support children and adolescents who struggle in school with learning differences and ADHD. I provide thorough assessment as well as ongoing advocacy with public and private schools as well as individual therapy and family support to children, teens, and young adults. I also provide education and information to groups of parents and educators who want to be more effective in supporting children succeed. I use CBT and mindfulness practice to help children and parents communicate more succesfully, and to promote problem solving while improving relationships. I provide assessment and advocacy packages to minimize costs.

Having worked for over 25 years in education, I have an understanding of school systems from an educational and legal perspective as well as expertise in the IEP process. I provide children mental health services while helping families negotiate the daunting process of special education particularly in Bay Area schools.

It is rare to find a psychologist/educational specialist who understands children with learning differences and ADD/ADHD. My extensive background as a school psychologist with my clinical training enables me to help families advocating for their children, while providing therapeutic support.
