Clinical Neuropsychologist / Assessment Coordinator

I am a clinical neuropsychologist with substantial experience in, and great passion for, working with and supporting autistic individuals and their families. I have experience working across the lifespan, including with complex communication, cognitive, and medical conditions, both in an assessment and therapeutic context. I have worked in a range of environments – clinics, schools, and research. Recently, I have narrowed the focus of my practice to performing a comprehensive educational and neuropsychological assessment in school-aged children who have an autism diagnosis. Working closely with children, parents, teachers, and schools, and providing clear and actionable strategies to support the learning, development, and participation of the child, is certainly where I feel most impactful. As part of the process, I take great pride and joy in working collaboratively with the child, earning their rapport and trust, and understanding their strengths, needs, and personality.
