I have worked in public education full time since 2006, as a school psychologist and program specialist.
I worked concurrently in private practice at the Center for Developing Minds in Los Gatos, CA from 2013 through 2019, and opened JP LEP in January 2020.
I have worked with every student population--preschool through post-secondary--and with children who have mild to severe disabilities.
I have worked closely with every kind of educator and specialist including general and special education teachers, reading specialists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, behaviorists, and the like.
Because of this experience and collaboration, I provide a unique perspective for families, and my familiarity with California Public Education Code helps me provide appropriate, rational, manageable and effective interventions and strategies for parents and school teams.
I will help to guide a family through the educational system in a collaborative way based on my knowledge of how general and special education systems work.
