I am a firm believer in the transformative power of psychological assessment. Comprehensive evaluations can help provide diagnostic clarification, identify individual strengths and challenges, determine unique vulnerabilities and protective factors, improve functioning and determine options for further treatment.
As a testing psychologist, I strive to establish meaningful connections with my clients; assess, understand and respond to their specific needs, strengths, and experiences (client-centered); recognize and acknowledge my biases and privilege while creating safe spaces for clients to honor their intersecting identities (inclusive); and emphasize their internal strengths and resourcefulness instead of their weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings (strength-based).
I specialize in neuropsychological and psychoeducational testing for children (6+), adolescents and adults. My practice focuses on the assessment of disorders including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Learning Disorders. Additional testing services include evaluations for kindergarten readiness, twice exceptionality, mood and behavioral concerns.
