Two decades of experience in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD, learning disorders, Autism, executive functioning, memory, anxiety, and depression with a personal perspective on the 2e experience. Whether you are a parent to a struggling learner, a young adult wanting to successfully launch, or a highly educated professional experiencing setbacks in social or goal achievement, I can help.

As a parent to an autistic daughter and as a twice exceptional individual myself, I know the frustration, letdown, and exhaustion you might be feeling. It feels like everything is becoming such a battle. You've either tried to utilize all the resources you can to manage this yourself or you've been put through the ringer of systems that mislabel, misdiagnose, overprescribe, and leave you without improvement. You might even be wondering if there isn't something different causing these challenges than what you've been told. With over 20 years of experience and training in neuropsychological assessment and the neuropsychological basis of learning disorders, contemporary and neuroaffirming methods of assessing and supporting neurodivergence, and a therapeutic approach that encompasses sensory, executive function, and cognitive rehabilitation. Discover the correct cause. Help your child find emotional equilibrium. Improve academic performance. Meet or exceed professional objectives.
