When work­ing with patients and their fam­i­lies, it is impor­tant to me to be very col­lab­o­ra­tive both when doing neu­ropsy­cho­log­i­cal assess­ments and ther­a­py. I believe that work­ing togeth­er to iden­ti­fy what you hope to learn or achieve through the process and devel­op­ing strate­gies to best to accom­plish your goals is key. In my expe­ri­ence, treat­ment is most suc­cess­ful when inter­ven­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions are con­struct­ed not only from the knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence of myself as the clin­i­cian, but also with your exper­tise in your own life and engage­ment in the process. Life can be hard at times, so I’ll try to laugh and use humor in a strengths based, patient cen­tered approach to help you over­come the most chal­leng­ing issues.

Clinical Interests

I have enjoyed work­ing with peo­ple of all ages in ther­a­py, but I have exten­sive expe­ri­ence work­ing with chil­dren and fam­i­lies. I am pas­sion­ate about neu­ropsy­cho­log­i­cal assess­ment and eval­u­ate chil­dren as young as 3 years old. I often assess for issues relat­ed to ADHD and oth­er aca­d­e­m­ic relat­ed con­cerns as well as emo­tion­al con­cerns such as anx­i­ety, depres­sion, behav­ioral chal­lenges, and con­cerns about cog­ni­tive or social/​emotional development.

Personal Interests

I am def­i­nite­ly a home­body who enjoys down­time with my fam­i­ly. My son keeps me busy with soc­cer and video games. I love try­ing new recipes, danc­ing for exer­cise (and for fun), and watch­ing all types of shows, movies, and documentaries.
