I am a registered Psychology Associate working under the supervision of Dr. Tana Clarke. I utilize a strength-based approach and positive psychology methods to build clients’ confidence and self-advocacy skills. I have experience working with neurodiverse children of all ages and developmental levels. For over 15 years, I have collaborated with parents and educators to design and implement evidence-based interventions specific to children’s academic and social-emotional needs, including their executive functioning skills. Through my experience working within public school systems in Maryland and Virginia, I have gained a unique perspective of the supports and services available to support children within general education and special education settings. I believe that empowering parents to navigate the systems and resources available is essential to their child’s overall well-being in school, at home, and in life
I obtained Bachelor of Arts degrees in Psychology and Criminology & Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland at College Park. While a student at UMD, I completed additional studies and community service as part of the Advocates for Children service-learning program. I obtained my Master of Arts and Certificate of Advanced Studies in School Psychology from Towson University. As a certified school psychologist in Maryland, I have been fortunate to evaluate children and adolescents with diverse needs, including Emotional Disabilities, A-D/HD-Other Health Impairments, Specific Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, and Autism. My active participation and contribution to Student Support Teams, 504 Committees, and Individualized Education Program Teams, has contributed to a wealth of knowledge and experience with data-based decision making, response to intervention models, and multi-tiered systems of support for children and families. I also coach children and adolescents to increase their executive functioning skills, including time management, organization, working memory, and emotional regulation. I highly value consulting with parents and other stakeholders to increase understanding of children’s abilities and challenges.
Life Outside the Office
When I am not working, I most enjoy spending time with my family and friends, including taking road trips to visit them as much as I can. My faith and daily devotions also fulfill me. Other pastimes I enjoy include karaoke, dancing, touring museums, spending time in nature, and travelling to destinations with beautiful beaches and waterfalls. My personal goals include becoming fluent in a second language and publishing my first book. I live for quotables, one of my favorite being, “You never lose; you either win, or you learn.”
