My Approach

I provide in-home services in Allegheny County. My sessions occur in your home, or at your child's school/daycare. I can also provide tele-therapy services to anyone in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. 

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

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

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

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.

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

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