Intro

Hello! I am a psychologist licensed in Massachusetts. I have a background working in both clinical and school settings. I have enjoyed working with clients of all ages. My background has been centered on conducting neuropsychological and neurodevelopmental evaluations. I value consideration of cultural factors and trauma when understanding clients’ functioning. I also have training in identifying giftedness and how this comes into play when considering a neurodivergent diagnosis.

What motivated you to specialize in working with autistic adults?

Working with the neurodivergent community has been a fulfilling experience for me personally and professionally. It’s important that clients feel heard, validated, and supported in the assessment process. Diagnosis can be the first step in having a better understanding of yourself, as well as movement toward services to enhance your quality of life. I appreciate the access to care that Prosper provides for the neurodivergent community.

How do you bring a strengths-based, affirming approach to your client work?

I value learning about others' experiences and perspectives. I strive to view differences from a strengths-based lens without judgement. I believe accepting and embracing neurodiversity is an important step in living an authentic life and connecting with others.
