Welcome to my website. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist specializing
in the psychological, psychoeducational and neuropsychological testing and evaluation of older children, adolescents and adults. I provide brief and comprehensive assessments for individuals experiencing challenges with attention, learning and academics, executive functioning, and/or emotional functioning. My specialty lies in the evaluation of learning disorders (in the areas of reading, written expression, or mathematics), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorders (AD/HD), and psychological disorders.

You may be seeking an assessment in order to clarify and better understand presenting challenges, clarify the diagnostic picture, obtain suggestions about appropriate interventions receive recommendations
for reasonable accommodations in school and/or work, and/or obtain practical recommendations to help you function better in your daily life.
A referring professional, such as a mental health clinician, learning specialist, speech and language therapist, or physician may be recommending an evaluation. Or, you may be seeking formal accommodations for high-stakes standardized testing (SAT, ACT, GRE, MCAT, GMAT, LSAT) or licensing boards. I have over 21 years of experience providing evaluations for individuals, families, health care professionals, educational institutions, standardized testing boards, and licensing boards. 

An assessment involves an in-depth clinical interview, collateral contacts with teachers or other relevant professionals, review of previous evaluations, administration of standardized tests, preparation of a detailed, comprehensive report, and a feedback session to the client and his or her family. My goal is to understand each client’s strengths and limitations thoroughly and to provide results that clients, and other referring professionals, can use to develop a plan for support and/or accommodations.

I practice in Marin County, California, and see clients from all over the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. My office is conveniently located, with easy access off the 101, and ample free parking. In addition to weekday appointments, I offer appointments on Saturdays. I AM NOW OFFERING THE OPTION OF A COMBINATION OF VIRTUAL AND IN-PERSON ASSESSMENT.
