I am a licensed psychological associate who specializes in psychological and psychoeducational testing. I conduct psychological assessments for learning disorders, ADHD, autism, personality functioning, depression, anxiety, and diagnostic clarification. A comprehensive assessment includes an evaluation of cognitive/intellectual functioning, academic achievement, executive functioning, attention/concentration, learning and memory, social/emotional development, and personality. I bring warmth, humor, and compassion to the testing process.
I summarize testing results into a written report that provides practical recommendations for treatment and intervention. My goal is to help each client succeed at work, school, and socially. Through testing we can identify and build strengths and develop treatment interventions and home/school/work accommodations to help you or child reach your/their potential.
I obtained my undergraduate degree in Business Management from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. After a successful 20-year career in the corporate world, I returned to school to pursue my dream of becoming a counselor. I obtained a Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Appalachian State University, and entered private practice. I have been providing services to individuals, couples, families and groups since 2007.
