I work with individuals from birth to adulthood for evaluations for special education, gifted education, dyslexia, learning disabilities/differences, Autism, ADHD, anxiety, Section 504 accommodations, or for entrance into private schools. Psychotherapy for children 4-16 years for anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation or self-harm, self-esteem, growth mindset, improving social skills, etc. Please note I do not work with insurance. I do accept HSA/FSA accounts for payment.
I am a certified School Psychologist and Registered Psychotherapist in Colorado, working on obtaining my LPC. I am also a Board Certified Cognitive Specialist (BCCS) and Certified Autism Specialist (CAS). As a BCCS, I have extensive training and experience in assessing cognitive skills. My experience does not stop there, applying my training to other areas to fully understand the whole individual. As a CAS, I have extensive training and continued professional development in assessing for Autism as well as working with individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder in counseling/psychotherapy. I work with individuals of all ages for psychoeducational testing, We can work in my office or I can travel to you! All evaluations are individualized to the reason for the assessment. Longer assessments are typically broken up into smaller sessions. Counseling/psychotherapy with children ages 4-16 incorporates a combination of play-based, Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, and other methods, based on the reason for counseling and age of the child.
My main mission is to understand how children and adults learn, connecting the dots across multiple data points. I believe everyone can learn, but some may need to learn in different ways. In counseling/psychotherapy, children are capable of many things. They sometimes need to be reminded of all they are capable of, and may need to understand their thoughts to see their abilities.
