Happiness and success are universal goals. Unfortunately, with all the stress and pressure placed on young people today, many children and adolescents have trouble maintaining hope that these lifelong dreams are attainable. I have spent my time working with the youth and empowering them to gain the tools and strategies needed to self-actualize, unlock their potential, and overcome their circumstances. I have helped guide young athletes who are learning to navigate the educational, social, and emotional aspects of sports. I have supported children caught in the juvenile justice, group home, and foster care systems.

I have nearly 20 years experience identifying the root cause of learning struggles. I provide screenings and full evaluations for all areas of educational disability, including Dyslexia, Autism, and Intellectual Disabilities. Follow up counseling and recommendations help clients maximize learning potential. Knowing how to navigate school resources can be intimidating. Maybe you've already tried and felt defeated by the process. I specialize in helping learners understand their own strengths and weaknesses. Better understanding brings relief and knowledge of how to advocate for appropriate accommodations and services in school and college. I also offer gifted IQ testing and counseling for anxiety in high achieving students.

As an Autism Spectrum Specialist my mission is to the healing and empowerment of children that suffer the misfortune of Autism, Aspergers and assorted learning / developmental challenges. We all desire a clinician and intervention that is both technically astute and competent; but finding an Educator / Teaching Specialist and life coach that actually authentically cares and sees your child as an individual and not a diagnosis; is much more difficult to find.

The most common questions that require a psychological assessment include getting a mental health diagnosis, determining learning or intellectual deficits, and understanding symptoms.
Life can change in an instant. What was once predictable, safe, and familiar is gone and we are left with the unknown. Life transitions, both big and small, require support. Some are easily manageable while others cause us to forget who we once were. In my practice I focus on working together to again find equilibrium. Sometimes we can't be who we once were but it absolutely does not mean we cannot discover who we are now or who we want to be in the future.

In this hour you are wanting to feel more joy, perhaps feeling alone or overwhelmed by your needs and the needs of your family and friends. You question how to find feelings of self love, while everything is changing and feelings of intense grief wash over you. You feel ready to confront past hurts. People in your life have required care-taking and could not be there for you, or maybe your thoughts and feelings have been shamed and you have a hard time trusting yourself.

School Issues Therapists
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Sacramento can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counselors in Sacramento help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, Sacramento Therapists work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in Sacramento all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good Sacramento academic counselor or school counselor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.
