Adolescents, Men's Issues, Psychological Testing

I am a clinical psychologist that works with children, adolescents, and adults in both English and Spanish. I believe that compassion and insight into one’s personal struggles can lead to powerful, positive changes in life. I specialize in pediatric neuropsychological testing for children and young adults regarding learning, developmental, social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. My collaborative approach to psychological testing seeks to empower parents and their child to gain a new perspective and deeper understanding of a particular child’s unique strengths and individualized needs.


I additionally offer psychotherapy to children and adults that is relational and strength based. I believe that each of us has unique experiences and related wisdom that can become overshadowed by life’s difficulties. Through a trusting therapeutic relationship I help individuals develop more belief in their own abilities as well foster increasing kindness towards themselves. My areas of specialty are anxiety, depression, personal self-growth, life transitions, men’s issues, multicultural families, and adoption issues.
