About

(Secure Video Conferencing is available). I am a licensed neuropsychologist with expertise in how behavior and skills are related. I help adults, parents, and their children, who are struggling and those who are gifted (2e). 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 you are. A correct diagnosis helps you determine the most effective ways forward. 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 President
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.
