Welcome to Alliance! My practice is committed to focusing on patient strengths and viewing mental health within the holistic context of biological, psychological, and social factors. I enjoy partnering with families, physicians, and educators to help patients achieve their goals. My clinical services include comprehensive assessments for ADHD, specific learning disorders (i.e. dyslexia), mood and anxiety disorders, maladaptive personality factors, and developmental disorders (including Autism Spectrum Disorders). My goal is to provide patients with an individualized treatment plan that provides opportunities for growth in both the home and school environments. When my schedule permits, I also enjoy providing individual and family psychotherapy services.

My goal is to provide quality health services to people with unique challenges who wish to enhance the quality of their lives and reach their maximum potential. My assessment services include neuropsychological assessment, comprehensive psychological assessment, pre-surgical clearance evaluations, and complex diagnostic clarification. Treatment services include specialized Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to address somatic symptom disorders (including conversion disorders), tic disorders (including Tourette’s Disorder), and complex sleep disorders. Specialized services are also available for those with depersonalization/derealization disorder, dissociative amnesia, stereotypic movement disorder, trichotillomania (hair-pulling), excoriation disorder (skin-picking), and rumination disorder.
