Narrative

I am an Independently Licensed Educational Psychologist in Massachusetts and Connecticut. I have experience working in hospital settings, outpatient clinics, and schools with children and adults from diverse backgrounds. I am able to provide Psycho-Educational (IQ-academics) as well as social/emotional evaluations. My specialties include Early Childhood (EI), Dyslexia, Dysgraphia (writing), Dyscalculia (math), Adaptive Behavioral, Autism (training from Yale), neurodiverse, medically complicated, trauma, and working with LGBTQ youth. I am especially adept (so people tell me) with complicated kids. In terms of methodology, I prefer to work with children I am evaluating over a series of 2-3-4 sessions and like to get to know who they are and what needs to be accomplished to help them feel and be successful. I also look at the evaluation as an investigative process, as I believe tests are tools and you need to use the right tools to identify the right areas. It is a process of gathering both diagnostic and anecdotal information that helps to form a picture of the whole child. Furthermore, I am happy to connect during and after the evaluation process (pending signed release of information) with anyone who would like to be involved. I also like to meet when the evaluation is completed to discuss my findings and next steps together. I do outreach and can come to your home if you like! I also take Covid-19 precautions as applicable and collaborate for your comfort and the comfort of your child. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and I will do my best for you.
