Over the past 30 years as a licensed psychologist, I have been providing psychotherapy, consultation, and psychological evaluations to children, adolescents, and adults within educational and clinical settings.
Using various approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, applied behavioral analysis, desensitization, relaxation/calming strategies, and play therapy, I address a wide range of learning, behavioral, social, and emotional issues with my clients. I also work closely with schools and families to help establish services for special needs students such as Individual Educational Plans and 504 Accommodation Plans.
Areas of interest and specialization include:
- Attention Deficit Disorders
- Specific Learning Disabilities
- Anxiety/Mood Disorders
- Behavioral Issues
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Parenting Education/Strategies
- Educational Interventions
- Developmental Disabilities
During my years in practice, I have been a member of the American Psychological Association and am a past president of the Wisconsin School Psychologists Association. My bachelor’s degree was earned in psychology at Northern Michigan University and my master’s degree in clinical psychology was obtained at Northwestern State University in Louisiana. I received my Ph.D. from Ball State University and I continue to engage in continuing education related to the developmental needs of individuals across age groups.
