I understand that finding someone who understands your needs and how to help can be difficult. That's why I feel it is important to start with an initial meeting where we can fully cover all of your concerns and gather as much information as possible. During that time, we will discuss your goals and how to achieve them or what additional information might be needed to reach those goals.

Aside from wanting to work with someone who is understanding, it is also important that you work with someone with expertise. So, a little about my professional training and experience....

I have been a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist for over 20 years, most of which was spent in private practice in Warrington, PA. Throughout my career, my education and training have focused on Clinical Neuropsychology, and I have met the training requirements outlined in the Houston Conference Guidelines. I completed my Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology at Thomas Jefferson University and Medical School’s Center for Clinical and Developmental Neuropsychology, where my research focused on the differential diagnosis of children with autism spectrum disorders and seizures disorders such as Acquired Epileptiform Aphasia (Landau-Kleffner Syndrome). Prior to this, I worked in the field of brain injury rehabilitation, helping survivors of brain injuries regain some of their skills through exercises and practice. 

I have worked in many different settings over the years, starting in 1987, when I got my first job in an inpatient psychiatric facility. Since then I have worked in several psychiatric hospitals, gathering as much training and experience as I could.

As a school psychologist, I have worked in public and private schools in the area, including working as the Coordinator of Neuropsychological Services for the Vanguard School, a Pennsylvania approved private school for children with special needs located in Paoli, PA.

I specialize in the assessment and treatment of neurological, behavioral and learning challenges. Most of my time is spent on neuropsychological evaluations for educational purposes, helping students with developmental delays, learning disabilities, ADHD and brain injuries, including concussions. Over the years, my services have grown with my patients to include services for adults with these same challenges as well.

I am on staff at Doylestown Hospital and, as a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS), I serve as the neuropsychological consultant to the Bucks County IU’s BrainSTEPS Program, where we work to help students with concussions and severe brain injuries re-enter school successfully. Currently, we have received a grant to provide concussion education and support to students in the county’s schools.

I also enjoy providing speaking and training services to schools, sports programs, businesses and other organizations.  I have been an active member of this community, coaching soccer over the years and supporting local nonprofits. I live in Warrington with my wonderful wife, our 2 amazing children and our dog, Bailey.
