I’ve been practicing psychology in northern Palm Beach County for over 30 years. I’m proud to be one of only 4% of psychologists in the United States to be Board Certified in Clinical Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology.
I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from The University at Albany, State University of New York in 1974. My M.A. and B.A. degrees in psychology were awarded by Bucknell University, Lewisburg, Pa.
My current practice involves evaluating children, adolescents and adults for a variety of issues. I specialize in the evaluation of Attention Deficit Disorder, learning disabilities, giftedness, developmental delays and autism spectrum disorders. I also evaluate students for test and other educational accommodations based on their disability. I conduct diagnostic evaluations for children who may have some behavioral/mental health disorder. I can refer all children I evaluate to appropriate treatment resources. Finally, I conduct pre-employment and fitness for duty evaluations for several law enforcement agencies.
I’m a member of the American and Florida Psychological Associations.. I also serve on the Board of Directors of the The Learning Center at the Els Center of Excellence, a charter school in Jupiter for children with autism.
I love to teach and have conducted training programs in over one dozen states for educators, mental health professionals, psychologists and physicians. . I’ve published several articles on learning disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder. My book, Teaching Kids with Mental Health and Learning Disorders in the Regular Classroom has sold over 12,000 copies, received numerous book reviews and has been published in four languages. I’ve been a speaker on many Celebrity cruises and have taught at the Lifelong Learning Societies at Florida Atlantic University and University of California San Diego.
