About me

I have been working as an academic coach for 14 years. I absolutely love my job and find it enjoyable and deeply rewarding to help students reach their goals. I have a doctorate degree in Developmental Psychology, and have worked with high school students, undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent grads with a variety of health, executive functioning, and/or learning issues.  I am not a licensed psychologist, and in addition to working with me, many of my students also work with a psychotherapist, psychiatrist or other health care providers.  The scope of my work is helping students and recent grads to overcome factors affecting academic performance and/or job search.
