Welcome to the School Psychologist page!
As the Indian Hill psychologist for preschool through fifth grade, I collaborate closely with the teachers, counselors, and parents of students who have a variety of special needs. This incorporates consultation, evaluation, intervention, prevention, and research/planning. I spend time within the Primary and Elementary schools observing and assessing students, and attending teacher, parent, and MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) meetings. Through the District office, I maintain administrative duties (e.g., district crisis prevention/intervention training), support mental health initiatives, and support our non-public and out of district families. My goal is to collaborate with parents, school staff, and other professionals to promote safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments so that all students can achieve academic, social, behavioral, and emotional success. We realize the vital importance of a positive early education experience, and work diligently in partnership with families to assure this for every child in our care. I enjoy working with a variety of students and am dedicated to improving outcomes for all students. If I may support or assist you, please don't hesitate to call!
