I love children, so helping them learn and achieve great things in life is my passion. I specialize in comprehensive assessments for children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders like Learning Disabilities including Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia, ADD/ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as Social, Emotional and Behavioral problems. I also provide assessments for Gifted and Talented students. A quality assessment is your starting point to getting the help you need for school, medical management and therapy.
As a psychologist, I enjoy helping students from preschool through college (and their parents) understand the unique combination of abilities that shape both their struggles and their successes. Informed by neuropsychological research and traditional psychometric validation, my assessments are independent, private, individualized, comprehensive, and flexible. My focus is genuinely student-centered, so you can rest assured that the recommendations are based solely on considering the student’s needs and best interests. My assessments go beyond a diagnosis to help understand why a student is having the difficulties they are experiencing. That means my recommendations can be much more specific and helpful.
My reports are routinely used in both public and private schools to support accommodations via the “504” process, curriculum modifications, special educational services, IEPs, College Board tests (ACT/SAT/GRE), tutoring, educational consulting, college counseling, and therapeutic Interventions.
Career Assessment and Counseling not only helps in the career decision-making process, it also helps in the college planning process. It is especially helpful for students with learning disabilities.
