an advocate for your student, I am often asked these common
questions about my practice and experience.
you describe your typical client?
Actually, there is no “typical” client in my
mind. Each child and family I work with have their unique
strengths and challenges. I work with clients ranging from
preschool through early college, as well as their families.
They may have questions about learning patterns and needs,
anxiety in and out of school, attention in school, organizing
themselves, or a variety of other topics too.
you professionally licensed?
Of course! I am a Licensed Psychologist with a Ph.D. This
means that I completed a doctorate program and all the requirements
for a State License in Psychology, which is monitored by
the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies.
you certified to work in school psychology?
Yes! I have a School Psychologist Certification from the
Colorado Department of Education to practice School Psychology
in the schools with students aged 0 to 21 years old.
does it look like when you begin working with my child?
My process typically starts with a thorough interview with
you and your child. Gathering this information helps me
understand your goals and directs the next steps in counseling,
psychoeducational assessment, and testing.
does psychoeducational testing or assessment mean?
It is a fancy word that means I do psychology and educational
tests to help students with learning, emotional, social,
and friendship situations.
does psychoeducational testing entail?
When testing a student, I look at the learning environment
as well as the strengths and needs of each learner. Each
assessment I conduct is unique to each student and is based
on the questions or concerns families have.
child has ADHD. Can you work with them to stay focused?
Students with ADHD can be exceptional learners! By working
with students with ADHD, I identify areas where they would
benefit from support. Additionally, my experience has taught
me that organizational and planning assistance for students
with ADHD can be vital to their success!
don’t think my child is challenged enough in school.
Do you work with “gifted” children?
I do. Gifted children can often feel “left behind”
even though they are “ahead” of their peers.
I work with gifted students and their families to build
educational and developmental plans that ensure they are
getting the stimulation and challenges they need to continue
