My Approach to Helping

I specialize in psychological and neuropsychological testing for ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, giftedness, and learning problems, and I have extensive experience with a wide range of presenting concerns including anxiety, depression, and acting out behaviors. I focus on giving you results in a way that helps you to better understand yourself or your child and know what can be done to help them.

I believe that with the right supportive environment of empathy, patience, and guidance we can all grow through challenges we face and emerge stronger than before. Neuropsychological testing is an important first step in addressing the these challenges – a clear picture of what is going on leads to a clear picture of what will be most helpful. My approach in therapy draws from multiple practices and I use cognitive, behavioral, relational, and mindfulness-based interventions.

Acknowledging distressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can be difficult. Reach out today, and allow me to help you through these challenges with warmth, compassion, and collaborative problem-solving tailored to your unique needs. I have no waiting list for testing services and can help immediately!
