I am a licensed psychologist specializing in educational problems and counseling. What does that mean? It means that I test and diagnose children and adolescents for any learning issues and educational difficulties facing them. It also means that I provide counseling to them on a variety of concerns, including self-esteem, anger, grief, anxiety, adjustment to divorce, and school and peer problems.

I can help parents understand how their children learn and how they can achieve better at school. If children are having trouble with school, I can administer a battery of intelligence, achievement and other tests to determine the causes of their problems and can recommend educational interventions. I can also work with parents to determine how best to support their children in the growing-up process. I serve individuals and families throughout the Puget Sound region in King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties, with offices in Seattle and Bellevue.

Other pages in this website describe my background, my testing services and approach, and my counseling philosophy and services.
