Assessment Expert: As a behavioral scientist who has been called upon to conduct assessment for a variety of groups (e.g., parents, schools, attorneys, court systems, professional organizations), I specialize in advanced psychological assessment. I sub-specialize in several areas of assessment/evaluation including the following:
- Gifted Assessment
- Learning Disability Evaluation
- Developmental Assessment
- Personality Assessment
- Child Clinical Assessment

Evidence-Based Treatment (EBT): In a world where a large group of professionals will offer their services, you must determine who has both the most caring manner and most credible skills. As a clinical scientist, my approach is to focus on using the most well researched options. Examples of clinical conditions that have been found to respond well to respond to EBTs include the following: ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, obsessive-compulsive problems, anxiety (e.g., PTSD, Social Phobia, Panic Attacks), depression, and dyslexia.
Developmental Psychology: Understanding how a child or adolescent’s age, stage, temperament, etc., must be factored in to understand their current level of development/functioning. A large part of my original training and ongoing work is in consulting on, assessing, and treating emotional, behavioral, and learning problems in children and adolescents. I specialize in helping parents and other professionals (pediatricians, schools, attorneys) understand children who may seem have so many issues that no one is able to help them, or even understand what conditions/problems are actually at play. My evaluation style focuses on clarifying the “puzzle pieces” and how they fit together, leading to a clear treatment roadmap composed of user-friendly recommendations.
Over the years, I have published several research papers on developmental issues, as well as investing 5 years of my life to publish a behavioral science tool used in several parts of the world.
