About

There are very few people who are trained on multiple levels to integrate the services your child needs, with those they are getting, into a comprehensive and integrated behavior program. Working from my extensive experience I can offer a very unique service.

Second, that as you read through the site you’ll smile and recognize that much of the content reflects the thoughts and feelings you are experiencing. You are not alone. There are options and I can help.

When a child has special needs, no matter what the diagnosis, those needs, need to be addressed for the child to reach his or her fullest potential. Because of the multitude of theories and interventions it can be very difficult for a parent to know what to do.

It’s hard for a parent to know where to go and how to best address their child’s needs. And, too often, the needs of the entire family are forgotten or ignored. When addressing a child’s needs it is very important that the needs of the parent(s) and immediate family also be addressed. They too have some special needs that need to be understood and supported.

My education and experience includes both psychoanalytic and behavioral training. Over the years, I have worked with children and adults with Down Syndrome, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Rubella Syndrome, Schizophrenia, ADD, ADHD, and many other developmental delays. I have worked with children from age 2 into adulthood. My experience has included working with children with behavioral issues (such as acting out through property destruction, non-compliance, aggression, and attending difficulties) and with children who needed to learn daily-living activities and tasks to succeed in their lives.
