A results-oriented approach
For children, teens and families...
I offer a compassionate approach employing proven strategies
for finding effective solutions and achieving desired results. It is typical for many of the children and teens with whom
I work to improve one or more grade levels in most subject areas.
As the result of our efforts, it is common for
students who are achieving “D” grades at the beginning of a term to be working at at least a “B” grade
level by the end of the term, to be completing, keeping track of and turning in all homework assignments (on time) while at
the same time spending less time each evening on homework. In addition, children and teens tend to develop more positive attitudes
about school, learning and, most importantly, themselves.

remembering important things, improving interpersonal relationships, managing impulses and emotions, and other key "executive
function" skills often compromised by ADHD.
Typical outcomes include increased productivity and greater goal achievement,
