As a collaborative, solutions-focused Executive Function coach, I provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address their life and academic challenges. I integrate the latest coaching techniques and skills development strategies to offer personalized programs tailored to my clients' needs. With compassion and understanding, I work to help build on client strengths and attain the personal and academic growth they are committed to achieving.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Developmental Psychology from Duke University and a Masters of Education from Washington University St. Louis. I have almost 30 years of experience in teaching and tutoring students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, NVLD, ADHD and executive function difficulties at the elementary, middle, and high school and college levels. I have a strong knowledge base in teaching executive function and study skills as well as extensive experience in the Orton-Gillingham and Wilson methods for teaching reading and comprehension.

My certification through JST and my experience in teaching and in individualized instruction for almost 3 decades helps me to bring a unique edge to helping clients.
