As a clinician, I utilize a cognitive, cognitive-behavioral and relationally pragmatic approach to working with children and adults, as well as their families, across a wide range of issues affecting wellbeing and mental health. As an expert health and educational advocate, I also help families negotiate complex treatment decisions and access educational supports.
As a consultant, I have spent the majority of my career working with educational communities, focusing on their physical, mental and organizational health. My clinical work, public speaking, mentoring, consulting, research and publications all revolve around themes of healthy educational communities.
Clinical Specialties and Treatment Modalities
Working with children, adults and families across a wide range of mental health concerns, my work is cognitive-behaviorally focused with an emphasis on pragmatic and relational approaches to symptom resolution.
Sometimes the issues that concern you or your loved ones are complex and intersect with medical, educational, legal or other issues. I can work with you to coordinate and integrate your various treatment options into a coherent plan, as well as help you monitor its outcome.
Many of the problems children experience are strongly connected to their successes, struggles and supports in school. Sometimes these educational issues are confusing and require advocacy to understand and resolve. I can work with you to understand your child's educational struggles, neuropsychological or educational evaluations, and options for additional supports.
