My Approach

I provide in-home services in Allegheny County. Sessions can occur in your home, or at your child's school/daycare. Office visits are available at the clinic in Carnegie, PA. I also provide tele-therapy services in PA and NJ.

I am the sole practitioner of my company, which means you receive services from a consistent therapist.

My therapeutic approach consists of a combination of structure and play, because I believe that children learn better when they are engaged.

I emphasize family involvement and use home programs so that your child improves at a faster rate. 

I listen to families and children when making decisions about therapy goals and activities. 

My practice is smaller, so I am able to dedicate time to planning individualistic therapy for your child, and am available to communicate between sessions.

My sessions are typically longer (45 minutes), depending on your child and family's needs.
