My Therapeutic Approach

My passion is to advocate for clients to ensure that their academic needs are being met. The education system can be challenging to navigate. My goal is to outline your rights in a clear and comprehensive manner and to provide on-going guidance and support. When helpful, I also conduct neuropsychological evaluations, as the data from the testing provides valuable information to help guide academic and therapeutic approaches and recommendations. As a school psychologist and educational advocate, my priority is to help you and your child work through, these at times confusing and complicated systems, to help your child receive the necessary educational supports and structures.

My Education and Training

I am a licensed (Type: Professional License Number: 466289) School Psychologist from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education School Psychologist (all levels). My work and training experiences have spanned a variety of populations, such as urban and suburban public schools as well as specialized, therapeutic settings. In these roles, assessment has been a primary focus while also conducting individual counseling, skill-based groups, crisis counseling, and consultation. In addition, I completed a practicum placement at The Brenner Center for Psychological Assessment & Consultation where I coordinated and conducted psychological and neuropsychological evaluations for a variety of referral questions. Moreover, I received supervision from a Board Certified Behavior Analyst from Melmark New England on measurement, experimental design, behavior change procedures and systems, assessment, and intervention.

I received an advanced graduate certificate in Applied Behavioral Analysis from Pennsylvania State University, my master’s degree in School Psychology from Marist College, and my bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from the University at Albany. Presently, I am enrolled at William James College as a doctoral student in School Psychology; earning a Psy.D. My doctoral project focuses on Threat/Risk Assessment in Schools.

My Areas of Specialty

As a licensed school psychologist, I have extensive experience in educational advocacy and strongly believe in the importance of understanding your child’s academic and learning rights. When conducting comprehensive evaluations, I utilize assessments that measure cognitive, academic, neuropsychological, personality, and social/emotional/behavioral functioning. Through conducting neuropsychological evaluations, my goal is to provide informational, educational, and valuable testing reports to aide in continued academic and treatment planning.
