With professional experiences that range from after school programs, working with inner city youth, to residential treatment facilities where I worked with individuals struggling with acute mental illness, I have learned flexibility along with the capacity to deliver insight and recommendations that incorporate individual specifics while remaining context aware.
As a school-based clinical child psychologist, I honed my ability to both observe children’s interactions with parents, family, themselves, and the world, and to understand their cognitive development and how it impacts their behavior and academic performance.
Offering support services to the families of formerly incarcerated individuals has opened up a whole new area of my professional development, as I have worked with them to heal old and present wounds within the family system.
As the designated director of a well-being support unit at a large university in the Middle East, I deeply understand the impact of mental health issues on academic outcomes and job performance. I have also been afforded the opportunity to offer consultative services to school psychologists at all stages of their career, indirectly supporting the needs of hundreds of families and young adults in the Middle East.
I offer a range of consultative services to solo practitioners, staff, groups, and institutions. These services cover a wide range of applications, including:
Consulting on individual cases
Conducting sensitivity workshops
School visits and observations
Participating in multidisciplinary team meetings
Case file reviews and confirmation of diagnoses
