Growth Mindset Coaching
A growth mindset is a powerful frame for your child to develop abilities to overcome any challenge. I work with kids 6-15 to gain tools to train their brain and enhance problem solving and build a "can do" attitude.
Part of building a growth mindset often includes allowing your child to view their mistakes as part of their path to success.
I am a Licensed Educational Psychologist specializing in the assessment of psychological disorders that interfere with learning and school success. Over the past 12 years, I have had experience working in the public school system and private practice. Understanding how both systems work, provides an advantage in navigating support in and out of school.
My assessments are designed to provide diagnostic clarification and recommendations that reflect your child's needs both in school and at home based on your referral concerns. To do this, I focus on uncovering cognitive, academic and processing strengths & weaknesses to better understand your child's functioning.
Referral reasons may include Learning Disabilities, such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and/or Dysgraphia, ADHD, Autism, and Anxiety Disorders.
I also provide IQ assessments on a frequent basis to support families with school applications and/or to gain some insight into their child's learning profile
Shelley was attentive, compassionate, and on board with helping our daughter meet her full potential! Her approach to my daughters learning differences came with such warmth and curiosity, rather than a cold approach which could make a child feel something was "wrong" with them. As a parent, Shelley went above and beyond to support our family. She was constantly willing to write up additional information, send me resources, answer questions as they arose.
