I am a licensed pediatric neuropsychologist with over 10 years experience specializing in neuropsychological assessment, diagnosis, intervention recommendations, and consultation services. I have always enjoyed working with children and families, and have three children of my own. My goal is to provide families with a better understanding of their child’s neurocognitive functioning, construct the most appropriate recommendations to help each child succeed, and assist families with advocating for their children across settings. I have training and experience in multiple children’s hospitals, an academic medical hospital, and developmental outpatient clinics. Areas of expertise involve assessment and diagnosis with many types of medical and neurological disorders including brain tumors, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury/concussion, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, genetic disorders, and others. I also have worked with many children and families dealing with ADHD symptoms, learning disorders, and developmental disorders. Given my additional training in school psychology, I have a working knowledge of special education services in schools and can help to provide recommendations for all settings.
