ABOUT

ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

As a clinical psychologist with over 25 years of experience working with children, my focus lies in understanding and addressing developmental differences, particularly in autistic spectrum disorders, ADD, and anxiety. My approach is rooted in utilizing remediation and developmental methodologies to foster optimal growth in children.

I've received training in various treatment methodologies, but my success stems from blending behavioral techniques with child centered approaches. By emphasizing the importance of the therapeutic relationship, I believe essential growth occurs. My philosophy centers on creating a strong bond between therapist and child, laying the foundation for transformative outcomes. 

EXPERIENCE

My professional journey began with neuropsychological remediation. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I've had the privilege of directing socialization programs tailored for children with autism, such as Boost and Spark. Additionally, I facilitated support groups like Sibfun, focusing on the siblings of children with special needs. 

Throughout my career, I've recognized the importance of addressing uneven development in children and implementing remediation strategies. My approach is centered on empowering children to develop the necessary tools to navigate their unique challenges, fostering self-reliance and resilience.

My contributions extend beyond clinical practice; I've authored chapters on Remediation in four editions of Cutting Edge Treatments for Autism, sharing insights and strategies gleaned from years of hands-on experience and research.
