As an experienced licensed psychologist, father, husband, researcher, and pretty decent cyclist and BBQ cook, I have been blessed with the opportunity to use my experiences to help learners, young people, and families thrive.

I have proven expertise and specialize in the treatment and assessment of neurodevelopmental disorders (learning disabilities, autism, ADHD, intellectual disability), chronic health conditions (cystic fibrosis, diabetes, genetic diseases, hearing loss, visual impairment), and emotional and behavioral conditions (anxiety, depression, ODD, phobias, challenging behaviors).

I function from a behavioral and strengths-based approach and take pride in my ability to guide and develop individuals and families.
