COVID-19 Update: You and your child's health & safety are my top priorities. I offer all assessments and therapy via telehealth (i.e., video conferencing software). Assessment and therapy services remain at the highest levels of care and security. Office policies also keep risk of transmission as low as possible during in-person sessions.
Developmental Language Disorders & Dyslexia
My doctoral training means that my clinical practice is cutting-edge and includes the latest research on developmental language disorder & dyslexia testing and therapy. At the heart of my clinical practice, I aim to connect with each individual student, help them see their true potential, re-engage them in learning, and create the buy-in necessary for long-term success. I enjoy working with clients, their parents, and professional team to remove barriers and implement individualized strategies for everyday social and academic success.

Symptoms of developmental language disorders are often over-looked or misdiagnosed as something else. If you feel like something isn't quite right, your child isn't meeting their academic & social potential, or his or her current learning disability diagnosis is not correct, you may be right! Developmental language disorder symptoms are hidden and can present as something different. Accurately identifying the underlying language deficits, however, is what makes treatment effective. Let's do an evaluation to sort it out together.
