Announcement icon For COVID 19 concerns: I'm happy to provide video therapy for those of you who would like to talk right now.
(Secure Video Conferencing is available). The joy of my work is to help identify a child's or adult's strengths, so that the weak areas do not define who they are. A correct diagnosis helps you determine the most effective help. I am a licensed neuropsychologist with expertise in how behavior and skills are related. I help families, their children (and teachers) who are struggling and/or those who are gifted (2e). These evaluations are also used in school 504 or IEP's, SAT, ACT accommodations. An evaluation is also helpful if you're concerned about memory or dementia. Affiliation: CPA; Special Needs Professionals, Board Member
Executive skills trouble? Reading problems? Worried about your memory? I love helping folks identify, consider options and find their pathway through their struggles. In a neuropsychological assessment, brain function is evaluated by a very detailed assessment and the pattern of strengths and weaknesses are combined to make a diagnosis and a treatment plan.
I work with you no matter how complicated life has become. The strength of my practice is being able to take into account all areas of life and make a diagnosis and complete treatment plan. The evaluation gets to the root of a problem so we can find a way through it.
