About My Clients

I am a psychologist and former teacher. I excel in building empathic and nurturing therapeutic relationships, so each patient feels comfortable, heard, and understood. Through my interpersonal approach, I recognize and support unique needs and concerns. Utilizing a variety of orientations and modalities, I provide individualized, experienced, ethical, and effective assessment and intervention .**Currently accepting testing and group clients only**

My Background and Approach

I specialize in personalized evaluations for those age two through adult. I assess and treat ADHD, Executive Functioning, Learning Disorders, Autism Spectrum, emotional, social, and behavioral diagnoses, and school and familial challenges. I develop unique, specific recommendations for home, school, and work, including recommendations for accommodations. I provide parent and social skills training, and coping, relationship, self-esteem, and general life coaching. When appropriate, I utilize expressive/art therapies, and holistic (mind/body) treatments. *Short wait and turnaround for Comprehensive, Neuropsychological, Psychoeducational, and Emotional Assessments.*

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

COVID-19 STATEMENT: **We at The SOAR Program for Psychotherapy & Testing at WBMA, LLC know this is a stressful time for everyone. To help ease the worry and to offer support, we are offering daily, free ‘on-line’ support groups to the community. Our hope is to provide connection, and to reduce the isolation that can be felt with social distancing. Telehealth groups will meet each week until life returns to a more familiar rhythm. Please visit our website to learn about our Tweens, Teen, College, Adult, and Parent groups. Clinicians serve as moderators, guides, and leaders. Participants are not receiving therapy, and can be located anywhere. We are also offering a free online well-being book club, and a low fee on-line Mindfulness Walking Group. Reduced Fee Telehealth Packages are available for parenting and individual therapy for people of all ages in MD, DC, and VA. We are also offering full-length, traditional teletherapy. Visit soar.care for registration information.**
