I worked in the Massachusetts public school system for nine years, practicing as a School Psychologist. Over that time, I evaluated and worked with children displaying a variety of disorders including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Learning Disabilities (including Language Based Learning Disabilities and Dyslexia), Autism Spectrum Disorders, Anxiety and Depression. I additionally served as an IEP chairperson and Special Education liaison. My wide-ranging experience within the public schools equips me with assessment skills, practical recommendations and knowledge of the Special Education system that allow me to assist families in navigating school-based support.
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, and then went on to earn my Master of Arts degree and Education Specialist degree in School Psychology from James Madison University in Virginia. In 2017 I obtained licensure as an Educational Psychologist through the Board of Allied Mental Health and Human Services. In 2018 I opened my private practice in order to help families gain a better understanding of their child's cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
