I am an Educational Therapist and have been working with students of all age ranges for over fifteen years.
My focus has been to help address needs in reading, writing, math, executive function, homework support, as well as self-advocacy skills. I have served students with Dyslexia, ADHD, visual and auditory processing as well as executive function.
I received my Master's Degree in Literacy from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and an undergraduate degree in Sociology from the University of California, Davis. I also obtained a Teaching Credential in Mild to Moderate Disabilities from California State University, Sacramento. For years I worked as a Learning Specialist with both elementary and middle school students. I then decided to transition into priviate practice and became certified in Educational Therapy.
I have utilized various curricula and multi-sensory techniques and I am trained in Orton-Gillingham. I draw from curriculums such as Seeing Stars, Step up to Writing, Touch Math, Woodin Math, as well as Dimensions Math (Singapore Math). Lastly, I incorporate elements of mindfulness into my teaching to help students manage anxiety.
My passion for education motivates me to continue to pursue professional development opportunities in order to provide the best solution for my students. I tailor my sessions to each student's needs and am always reflective in my practice.
