My approach to patient care is comprehensive and individualized. I gain an extensive history from my patients to be able to design an individualized assessment to their unique concerns/difficulties which allows me to provide the most appropriate neuropsychological diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
I enjoy dance, traveling, family time, and outdoor activities.
I was born and raised in the Rochester area. After attending college at SUNY Oswego and being burned out from the snow, I moved south for my graduate career. I obtained my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology (with a specialization in neuropsychology) from Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL. I completed my neuropsychology internship at Emory University School of Medicine/Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, prior to a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology at Florida Hospital/Walt Disney Pavilion in Orlando, FL. I returned to the Rochester area with my husband in 2013 to start our family and bring my clinical skills and training to the Rochester area. I have extensive pediatric experience working in multiple neurodevelopmental, medical/neurological, and psychology settings with children as young as toddlers. My love for working with older adults and the geriatric population stems from my many years of experience working at a state-funded memory center in Florida. I also provide clinical assessment and care to adults who are suffering from a range of neuropsychological concerns.
