I specialize in personalized psychological assessments, consultation, treatment planning, and psychotherapy. I treat you and your family with compassion and sensitivity and I offer a dignified space where you can share your concerns without judgment.
At the end of the process, my intention is that you will walk away with a clear path to helping yourself be a better student, person, so that you’re not struggling as you have been.
Psychological testing is a way to get insight into your personality, skills, areas of challenge, and environmental factors to help you capitalize on your strengths and free you to be more successful and your best self.
You will receive a written report containing very concrete ideas and recommendations on what to do after the testing has concluded. I might recommend therapy, counseling, medication, diet, meditation, exercise, social skills training, and many other options..
*** I regret that I am not able to accept new therapy clients at this time. I am only able to see new clients for psychological assessment. I will update this when I have future openings. Thank you.
I am guided by the principles of Therapeutic Assessment, which involves clients actively participating in their therapy and psychological evaluation so that the results make more sense. Therapeutic Assessments helps you answer questions you might have had for a long time. “Why am I so anxious?”, “Do I have ADHD?” or, “Why do I keep repeating destructive patterns in my life?” “Do I really have depression or am I just going through a bad patch?” “Why can’t I get motivated?” Based on your questions, psychological tests are identified that will help provide those answers. Testing takes place over several appointments (up to 5) and you are an active participant.
I also offer traditional assessments for the following:
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Academic achievement
- Documentation for special accommodations (IEP, 504, standardized tests such as SAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, etc.)
- Intellectual (IQ) and cognitive testing
- Gifted and talented assessment
- Learning Disabilities (e.g. dyslexia, mathematics problems) testing
- Memory difficulties
- PTSD / complex developmental trauma
- I also offer pro bono psychological assessments for refugees and asylum seekers.
A psychological evaluation can bring about personal transformation. I will ask questions about your symptoms, stress levels, sleep, nutrition, emotional state, physical health, environment, culture, and family history. My goal is to help you understand the root cause of your symptoms. This approach is fundamentally different from what you may be used to.
The most common question I am asked is: “Does insurance cover testing?” I wish there was a simple answer. Some insurance companies cover testing and some do not. It depends on your policy and other factors, such as whether you have a deductible. I am in network for some insurance companies. Contact me for further details.
Appointments can be arranged after hours by appointment.
