Taking the first step towards a diagnosis is not easy, and I am honored you are considering me to help you learn more about your child. I am a child psychologist specializing in the evaluation/diagnosis of:
autism spectrum disorders
ADHD and executive functioning challenges
learning differences (e.g., dyslexia) and intellectual disabilities
and related behavioral and developmental disorders
My goal in my practice is to provide comprehensive, "gold standard" evaluations that help parents understand their child's unique learning style, and help them make a plan moving forward.

Autism Spectrum is a neurodevelopmental disorder, or brain style, characterized by differences in social communication, sensory sensitivities and exploration, and repetitive or restricted behaviors/ interests. The diagnostic process is complex, and requires a skilled psychologist.
Psychological Testing is a specialty service offered for individuals needing diagnostic clarity and the development of service recommendations for home or school. ADHD, learning disorders, Autism Spectrum, and related disorders in particular require comprehensive psychological testing for valid diagnosis.
Teleassessment is a good option for families who live in rural areas and are unable to access in person services. Alternatively, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, many clinicians and families are choosing this option when it's ethically and clinically indicated.
I am currently providing comprehensive psychological evaluations at Gentry Pediatric Behavioral Services (www.gentrypbs.com), located in Phoenix, Arizona.
In addition, I am providing virtual Autism Spectrum evaluations for children age 5 and under in rural areas of Arizona who do not readily have access to a psychologist who completes such evaluations.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
