Licensed Psychologist, Executive Director



Our offices provide psychological consulting, psychotherapy, and services for children, adults and families impacted by cancer.  

Children and adolescents suffering cancer, undergoing treatment, or in sustained recovery from radiation, surgery, and/or chemotherapy must cope with tremendous stressors both psychologically and physically.  Pediatric psychologists can assist families, children and adolescents through support, coping with fears, cognitive-behavioral interventions for anxiety about procedures or fears which may develop post-treatment. 

Pediatric neuropsychologists can assist by performing pre and post intervention neuropsychological assessments and in helping with transition back to school.  Long-term survivors often face challenges related to the site of cancer and iatrogenic effects of treatment.  Neuropsychologists can provide assistance in determining strengths and weaknesses in memory, executive skills and other abilities to assist in educational, college and vocational planning.
