In addition to working with children and adolescents, I am able to evaluate college students who require testing to document their disability or the need for classroom and/or testing accommodations.
I came into the field of school psychology through my teaching career in New York City. I became fascinated with child development through my years of having conversations with children, and I wanted to learn more about how their minds worked so I could help them define their problems and begin to explore ways to help them to find solutions. I have worked with students of all ages for more than 35 years as a school psychologist, as well as a teacher of general and special education. My experience gives me a unique perspective to conduct psychological and diagnostic evaluations for students with academic and behavioral challenges.
