Founding Story

I have 25 plus years of experience initially as a school psychologist and then in public school administration at various schools throughout the Bay Area, and 15 years of experience in private practice as a licensed educational psychologist. My experience helps me when assessing students, conducting independent educational evaluations (IEEs), working with school districts, and coaching parents who are working with their school-based teams.
