In many situations, family members or individuals become concerned about a loved one's or their own development or mental health. My practice, Achieving Milestones & Progress (A.M.P.) Autism, helps families or individuals to understand and improve their loved one's or their own developmental or psychiatric needs through comprehensive evaluations and/or treatments. In doing so, it is hoped that individuals of all ages and functioning levels can reach their full potentials and continue to make progress and grow throughout the lifespan. Families will also be better equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to facilitate that process.

I evaluate neurodevelopmental (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), language and other delays, learning and intellectual disabilities) and psychiatric (e.g., anxiety, mood disorders, depression) disorders in individuals across the lifespan. My individual therapy focuses on the same population using validated treatments and family training.

In my prior training and career at UCLA, I achieved both clinical and research level reliability on gold standard autism diagnostic measures. My evaluations and treatments help advocate for diagnostic-specific services from the school district, Regional Center, medical insurance, and other state entities to help clients reach their potential.
