What was your path to becoming a clinical psychologist?

I was initially drawn to clinical psychology as a way to integrate two of my deepest held values--being of service to others and a love for learning. Early on in my training, I realized the profound impact that our brains, and how they're wired, have on our experiences in the world. I love sharing this knowledge with others and sparking a person's own curiosity in how their mind works.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

The benefits of identifying a learning difference and effective strategies to minimize its impact can last a lifetime. I am passionate about intervening early in order to send students on a new developmental trajectory. A learning evaluation can be an incredibly powerful tool for preventing future psychological and educational difficulties.

What advice would you give to a family who is on the fence about signing up for a learning assessment?

A learning assessment not only identifies learning differences, it also creates a new language to talk about these challenges. A learning evaluation offers students a way to understand their learning style, clearly communicate it, and advocate for their needs to teachers, coaches, and other important people in that student's life.
