Hello, and welcome to my website!
First and foremost, my professional pursuits for the past 15 years are a direct function of my passion for working with children, adolescents, and families in need. In general, my mission as a professional is to provide individualized, targeted, and effective support to children, adolescents, and families. As a goal-directed therapist, my primary objective is to understand an individual in context, to identify influences that contribute to both stress and success, and help people generate strategies to move forward in their lives.
For the past 15 years, I have worked as a clinician, consultant, researcher, and adjunct instructor in several different environments, including private practice, school districts, and evaluation research companies. As a clinician, I have handled many different responsibilities as a therapist, evaluator, and consultant, and have established the capacity to assess students with a variety of needs, including mental retardation, autism spectrum, mood, anxiety, behavior, and learning needs, to build rapport, to provide therapy when applicable, and to recommend and implement appropriate accommodations/interventions.
If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or if you are just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit more about me and the work that I do. I would welcome the opporunity to speak more with you, and I look forward to hearing from you.
