My Areas of Practice
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and families from diverse backgrounds and with a variety of presenting problems. I believe in collaborating and utilizing the systemic approach focused on understanding individuals in the context of the numerous systems that affect them, including school, community, and the family. I have a strong interest in working with children and adolescents with developmental disorders, including ASD and ADHD, behavioral and emotional disorders, anxiety, and depression. My theoretical orientation integrates multiple perspectives, including developmental, cognitive-behavioral, and systems theory. I also provide full psychological evaluations to determine or clarify appropriate diagnoses. I am trained on the Autism Diagnostic Schedule – 2 (ADOS-2).
