Hello! I am excited to get to know you! I am one of the psychologists at Kimel Psychological Services. I complete evaluations here for children, adolescents and young adults. I enjoy working with individuals with neurodevelopmental differences and co-occurring medical, neurological and/or genetic conditions. I use a collaborative, individualized, and strengths-based approach to the assessment process. I hope to help families identify their child’s unique strengths and connect them with services that will best support their child’s areas of vulnerability. I have worked in a variety of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary settings, and I continue to value collaboration amongst families, providers and school systems when possible.
A little about my background: I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics from Washington University in St. Louis, my Master’s degree in Child, Family and School Psychology from the University of Denver, and my Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My training has focused on identifying and supporting children with developmental disabilities and co-occurring medical complexity. I completed my predoctoral internship in the rehabilitation unit at Franciscan Children’s Hospital providing assessment and treatment services for children with acute and chronic neurological illnesses. I completed my postdoctoral fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital where I provided neuropsychological evaluations for children and adolescents with congenital heart disease.
I moved back to Colorado in 2022 after living on the East Coast for several years. I have always loved Colorado and the mountains, and am very happy to be back out here. When I am not working, I love to hike, ski, craft, and travel both in the U.S. and in countries abroad.
