For twenty years, I have been a clinical and school psychologist, working with children, families, and their schools (both public and private). I have also maintained a private practice, where I have consulted with parents and worked with their children to address issues that could impede their academic success and emotional well- being. My background as a person of color and someone who attended and graduated from an independent school, as well as my professional roles have enabled me to witness the perspectives of all participants (i.e., students, parents, teachers and administrators). I have observed students over the entirety of their school trajectory, seeing all of the issues that can challenge and compromise their success and happiness.
My intention here is to share my knowledge with you so that you can ensure the smoothest school journey for your child. This page will be a resource for parents and educators, helping them best address situations many children will confront.
