Welcome to my website and psychology practice! I’m so glad you’re here. Today you’ve taken an important step in getting help for your child’s school issues, whether learning, attentional, behavioral, or social-emotional. I will be there to support you through each and every step along the way.
Is your child:
✓ struggling with attention, organization or time management?
✓ having difficulty showing how much (s)he knows?
✓ overwhelmed, falling behind, and anxious about school?
✓ worried, frustrated, and don’t know what else to do to help your child?
✓ tired of waiting to have your child evaluated by the school?
✓ Feeling helpless and worn down?
I can help. The truth is that your child can learn. They may have a specific way they learn, focus, and adapt, but they can learn and succeed. They have a unique gift to offer the world, and it’s up to us to find and nurture it.
✓ I am passionate about helping students work smarter, not harder.
✓ I am passionate about helping parents understand their child and how they think, learn and develop.
✓ I am passionate about helping everyone come together to support a struggling student in the most effective way possible.
✓ I am passionate about helping your student feel good about school and themselves.
I have a unique perspective as both a certified School Psychologist and a licensed Clinical Psychologist. I’ve been a classroom teacher, school psychologist, learning disabilities interventionist, behavior specialist, clinical psychologist and a psychometrist (that’s a fancy word for a person who administers psychological tests). All this adds up to a vantage point that allows me to see a student’s struggles from many perspectives.
Negotiating the complex world of your child’s education and its myriad of services can be daunting. It can become even more confusing when trying to understand your child’s unique way of learning, processing information, and expressing what they know. And to make matters more complicated, information from the medical world or non-school clinicians does not necessarily dovetail easily with school district eligibility or services.
I can help:
✓ Interpret school district paperwork, evaluations, IEPs or 504 Plans, as well as reports from outside-the-school clinicians, such as physicians, psychologists, and therapists
✓ Guide you through the special education process
✓ Assess your student in a manner that school districts understand and that is educationally relevant
✓ Teach you how to advocate effectively for your student
✓ Bridge the gap between parent and child around issues of work completion, homework, attention, time management, and organization
