Who Are Your Assessments For?
An assessment at Outside the Lines is a perfect fit for those looking for testing for the following areas...
I graduated from Palo Alto University's Pacific Graduate School of Psychology with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I have over five years of experience providing psychoeducational and neuropsychological evaluations.
Throughout the course of my training and early career I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in both therapy and assessment. Through my work I noticed how many neurodivergent children and young adults "slip through the cracks" of both public and private schools and the unfortunate negative effects of these oversights. We all learn differently and individuals who do not understand their learning differences will often become anxious or depressed as a result. This creates a vicious cycle in which the individuals will often then have more academic, social, and overall functioning struggles due to mood symptoms. It is important to break this cycle as soon as possible.
I aim to provide individuals with resources tailored to their individual strength and weaknesses, and address some of the co-occurring mental health difficulties that may have developed as a result. Early intervention for academic and emotional differences can make a huge impact on someone's life trajectory. Set your yourself (or your child) up for success by taking action NOW!
