I am able to provide you and your children with a wide variety of educational services. As before, I will be offering subject tutoring, psycho-educational testing, test preparation, including ACT and SAT, organizational, cognitive, and study skills. Because of my background and interests, I had a great deal of success in treating people with Attention Deficit Disorder and depression. Recently, I have become certified in both cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy. These are programs that modify behavior (such as organization and attention) through examination and modifications of thought processes, perceptions, and belief structures. Both of these programs have been shown to be effective and often rapid in changing behavior. I am quite excited to be able to incorporate them into my practice. I have also extended my services to include junior college and college students. For special needs students, I now offer advocacy and representation services and am able to represent students and parents at IEP conferences, staff and other school meetings. In conjunction with other professionals, additional subject tutoring, alternative school placements, college choice advice and legal representation can be arranged.
