As Hunter College Campus Schools K12 School Psychologist I work closely with both the elementary school and high school. I work collaboratively with the ES Student Support Team and the HS Assistant Principals and Counselors. Prior to joining Hunter College Campus Schools, I had over a decade of experience confronting and challenging the inequities in education, mental health and social justice. As a School Psychologist, I’ve evaluated students to formulate educational pathways that were truly student-centered, resulting from the strength-based approach by highlighting the complexity of distinctions between language acquisition, learning disabilities and mental health.
K12 School Psychologist
As the HS Consulting Psychologist, I consult with students, faculty and parents. I am here to build a rapport with the students, support the efforts of the counseling team, and join parents in thinking about how best to usher their children through this critical period in their development. As developmental concerns or specific issues come up regarding your children, please feel free to reach out to me at this email. We will be able to set up a time to chat, meet in person (what a delightful phrase) or see how best to meet the needs of your family. I will also be working with the PTA to sculpt conversations with each of the grade levels of parents in the high school and so you can also write to your representatives of the PTA about topics and issues you would like me to address when we come together.
