Before I begin the process with any child or family member, I take a step back. Every one of the children I work with has unique strengths and weaknesses, but they all want to be able to move forward, to fit in, to be happy. My goal, first and foremost, is to take the time to get to know the totality of your child, not just the challenges that he or she may be facing. By introducing your child to a warm and welcoming atmosphere, a relationship can be formed based on trust and mutual respect. This in turn helps me better see the overall picture. I can then offer an optimal set of recommendations and interventions based not only on what the various evaluations indicate, but also on what I intuitively learn about your child following our give and take.
My mission is to be a professional resource for families, schools and communities to support the health and well-being of their children and help them maximize their potential.
