I am a licensed speech and language pathologist with a Masters of Arts degree in Speech Communications and Speech Disorders from California State University at Northridge. She runs a private practice in Culver City and has been on the faculty of Park Century School for children with learning disabilities for over 12 years.
She specializes in working with children and adults who have language challenges, both receptive and expressive, as well as challenges in
social communication, writing, and cognition. Her clientele includes but is not limited to children and adults with learning challenges, ADHD, and on the Autism Spectrum. She is also available to those who do not have a diagnosis but feel uncomfortable with their use of language, academically and/or socially.
Recognizing that language challenges often cannot be separated out from challenges in attention, anxiety, executive function, writing, and social cognition, she addresses these areas as needed.
Mindfulness and brain and cognitive thinking research frequently inform her work. Her commitment to helping children and adults function better in school, in the workplace, and in the social arena has resulted in children and adults leading happier and more productive lives.
