My practice specializes in providing psychological assessments for children and adults. Diagnostic assessments for ADHD and learning disabilities are specialties. As part of these evaluations, I assess strengths, weaknesses, and needs and advocate for appropriate accommodations. I also conduct forensic evaluations to provide input on custody matters as well as criminal competency and responsibility.
