Who I Serve

As a licensed psychologist, I specialize in conducting comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations designed to help children, adolescents, and adults reach their full potential. My assessments help clients identify and address difficulties with mood, attention, learning, and/or behavior that may be negatively affecting their well-being. I view my work through the lens of interpersonal neurobiology, which emphasizes how each person's brain, mind, and relationships interact to shape who they are. I approach each client with curiosity and set aside assumptions that can get in the way of seeing their strengths and abilities. I evaluate, diagnose, and provide individualized treatment recommendations for issues such as ADHD, developmental disabilities, learning disorders, depression, PTSD, OCD, and TBI. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Board Certified Behavior Analyst, I am also available for counseling and consultation. The assessment process takes time and typically involves a comprehensive interview and between 2 and 6 two-hour testing sessions.
