“The most dangerous stories we make up are the narratives that diminish our inherent worthiness. We must reclaim the truth about our lovability, divinity, and creativity.” ~ Brene Brown

As the director of the Assessment program at the Institute and Flourish, I provide comprehensive individualized assessment services for children, teens, and adults who want to learn more about their cognitive profile, learning or attention differences, or psychological challenges that have been difficult to remedy. I specialize in providing strengths-based assessments and walking alongside the client as they get connected to needed supports and accommodations. I’m passionate about changing the landscape of psychoeducational assessments so that they are accessible for everyone regardless of socioeconomic status. Therefore, I work with interested clients to provide guidance and explore options for assessment—whether it be a reduced fee at the Institute, assessment services through their school district, or testing at other clinics in our community.

In addition to my work with the Assessment team, I also provide individual therapy to young adult and adult clients. I’m passionate about supporting individuals as they live through and work against the harsh systemic realities of misogyny, gender inequities, racism, ableism, and other forms of oppression. I also specialize in providing meaningful support for pregnant women and new parents as they navigate pregnancy and the postpartum period. Whether you’ve experienced birth trauma, pregnancy or infant loss, or changes in mood and anxiety during or after pregnancy, I’d be honored to journey with you through this season.
