|Type of Practice :
||Private practice: clinical psychology, educational therapy, consultation, psychological and neuropsychological assessment
||My work focuses on understanding and meeting the needs of people who may not be a good match for typical classroom or work environments. I work primarily with children, adolescents, and adults who manifest giftedness, learning disability, or multiple exceptionality, as well as with families, couples, and professionals. I offer a wide variety of services, including therapy, mentoring, assessment, enrichment, remediation, program development, parent and teacher guidance, public speaking, and professional consultation.
I draw upon my analytical background as a research scientist, my practical background as a classroom teacher, and my professional training as both a clinical psychologist and an educational therapist, to develop an approach tailored to each client's individual needs. I focus on understanding the complexity of the person-in-context, capitalizing on strengths and shoring up weaknesses. My goal is always to build a person's range of adaptive skills, self-understanding, capacity for self-regulation, and independence, to help them identify and effectively follow their passions. I also strongly believe in helping interested parents, educators, and clinicians develop their own knowledge and skills.
Assessment work includes testing for school admissions and standardized test accommodations, comprehensive neuropsychological and psychological evaluations, and therapeutic assessment aimed primarily at self-understanding.
