This is my 22nd year as a School Psychologist. My professional interests are helping students with ADHD and Autism. I love to develop Visual Strategies, which are evidence based interventions, to help children with a variety of disabilities. I also use a lot of Cognitive-Behavior Techniques in working with students.
I don't teach in the classroom, but I would say my consultation with teachers is behaviorist in nature.

I am a wife, mom, step--mom, and a School Psychologist. I love buoy working in my flower garden, running, and going to the beach (or anywhere) with my friends and family. I also am passionate about school mental initiatives. Every student deserves to learn in a physically and psychologically safe environment. I look forward to working teachers, parents and administrators every day to assist students' emotional and academic development.
