My Approach to Helping

Whether you're entering therapy or beginning a psychological evaluation, you have unique goals for our work together. That's why I tailor my approach to you. I believe that you and I should always work collaboratively, working as a team to developing a plan to achieve your goals.

More Info About My Practice

In my therapy practice, I'll help you discover how to create the most fulfilling possible life. We'll start by defining your goals for yourself or your child. Then we'll combine your expertise about who you are and what you want with my expertise in psychology. From there, we'll work collaboratively to achieve your personal goals. Together, we'll work to solve problems, increase self-esteem, enhance relationships, improve behavior, or increase overall well-being.

In addition to therapy, I also have a comprehensive psychological testing practice. Using established tests and standardized measures, testing gathers the puzzle pieces that represent your coping skills, personality traits, knowledge sets, and intellectual attributes. These pieces reveal a complex picture of strengths and weaknesses that illuminate the underlying causes of symptoms which may have troubled you for years.

With this knowledge comes the ability to tailor strategies to help you put your strengths to greater work and effectively address weaknesses. Perhaps most importantly, when clients no longer feel their minds are an unsolvable puzzle, you can finally meet your full potential.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In my testing practice, I offer psychoeducational testing to diagnose learning and developmental disabilities and to determine what supports and accommodations would be helpful to clients once they are diagnosed. I also administer the cognitive tests required by many area independent schools as part of the admissions process. These include:

Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence, Fourth Edition (WPPSI-IV)
Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fifth Edition (WISC-V)
Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale for Early Childhood, Fifth Edition (Early SB-5)

Working in therapy, I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults to address a variety of issues and concerns. My experience includes therapy for Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD or ADHD), anxiety and panic, depression and other mood disorders, divorce and other family conflicts, executive functioning deficits, life transitions, loss and grief, low self-esteem, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), social anxiety, stress management, parenting issues, and relationship issues.

I also have experience working with children in therapy on issues including anxiety and panic, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD or ADHD), behavior problems, bullying and peer problems, depression and other mood disorders, divorce and other family conflicts, executive functioning deficits, learning disabilities and other academic issues, loss and grief, low self-esteem, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), social skills issues and more.
