EDUCATION, GRADUATE AND POST-GRAD:
*M.A. Degree in Educational Psychology from Azusa Pacific University (http://www.apu.edu/education/counselingpsych/educationalpsychology/)
As a Licensed Educational Psychologist, I am able to assess clients who are suspected of having challenges that associate with learning. The resulting relevant “educationally-related” diagnoses and strategies are tailored to the individual to foster growth (targeted interventions). I am endorsed by the American Board of School Neuro-Psychology. I am not a Clinical Neuro-Psychologist. My assessments include Pediatric Neuro-Cognitive Evaluations and not Neuro-Psych evaluations. With my background and experience, I am able to provide valuable insights into how learning works and how it may go wrong for a given client. With the credentials and licensure I maintain, I am qualified to provide comprehensive Psycho-Educational assessments for an individual of nearly any age (from about 5 years through adult), and Pediatric Neuro-Cognitive Evaluations only for school-aged clients (5-21 years).
EXPERIENCE Over ten years experience performing Psycho-Educational Assessments of students in the public education system has provided me with a solid foundation to understand learning and how it may break down for an individual. Over the years, I have performed several hundred evaluations, of clients with have a variety of unique needs. Recently, I was honored to be elected a member of a local school district’s Professional Leadership Team where I participate in leading the School Psychologists that serve there toward further professional growth and development.
BILINGUAL Being highly fluent in Spanish and having served seven years as a trusted Bilingual School Psychologist in the public school system, I am prepared to assess clients who speak Spanish as their native language. It is with satisfaction that I have accepted the offer to join a local school district’s Spanish Assessment Team to assist in providing comprehensive evaluations of students who are learning English as a second language.
