Short version: I am a strengths-based speech language pathologist specializing in social cognition and executive functioning skills.
I have a Masters of Science in Speech-Language Pathology and am nationally certified. I work with clients on their higher level, nuanced, communication needs.
I specialize in social cognition and executive functioning skills. I work with clients who have difficulty understanding social aspects of their life, connecting with others, and perspective taking. I also teach them organization skills and higher level thinking skills such as response inhibition, working memory, cognitive flexibility, problem solving, reasoning and planning.
I am strengths-based: I specialize in assessing clients with social cognitive and executive functioning delays by focusing on their capabilities. I find ways to asses and provide intervention through their strengths to empower them, build self awareness and confidence.
I’m a private practice owner, public speaker, and co-founder of a non-profit for those diagnosed with autism.
I utilize technology to create innovative approaches. I see clients via webcam. I speak on new ways to use the mobile devices in therapy. I connect with my students through their favorite tech gadgets.
