About Me

I am Board Certified in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology. I am licensed in the State of Texas as a Psychologist and Licensed Specialist in School Psychology. I have spent nearly 25 years working with children, adolescents and their families. I worked 16 years in a local school district as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology as well as the Director of Evaluation and Compliance. Most recently I was the Director of the Psychology Department at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. I left the hospital to focus on my specialty of psychological evaluation. My areas of interest include autism spectrum evaluations, cognitive evaluations, ADHD evaluations, mood disorder evaluations, and child custody and adoption evaluations. Court -related consultation, expert testimony, and fitness for duty evaluations are newer aspects of my practice.

Developmental

Cognitive evaluations for children, adolescents include Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scales of Intelligence (WPPSI-IV) or the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-V).  I can evaluate children as young as 4 years of age with the WPPSI-IV.  

Developmental evaluations can be completed with children as young as 1 year old with the Cognitive Assessment of Young Children (CAYC). 

Adult cognitive evaluations are also available by using the Wechsler Adult Intellectual Scale (WAIS-IV).

ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder evaluations may include cognitive assessment as well as executive functioning assessment and data gathered from several sources depending on the age of the individual. 

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Whether it is an initial diagnosis or a second opinion, I can offer a full evaluation including cognitive, educational, adaptive, social, emotional, and behavioral functioning. I am trained in the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule, Second Edition (ADOS-2). Children as young as 18 months can be assessed with this instrument. In addition to the ADOS-2, other measures may be used as well as a parent and/or child interview and observation.  Data may be gathered from several sources or environments.
