About Me

Hello! I am the owner and founder of Dreamcloud Psychology & Educational Services in Louisville, Kentucky.  I am a Licensed Psychological Practitioner governed by the Kentucky Board of Examiners of Psychology. For the past eleven years, I have worked in private practice settings and have held licensure to practice psychology within the state of Kentucky. I enjoy working with children and adolescents (ages 9 and up) and adults.  I have an extensive background in child development and my expertise is in assessment and treatment of learning challenges, attention and executive functions, and social-emotional issues

Areas of Specialization

My approach to therapy and psychological testing is strength-based, individualized, and grounded in evidence-based practices and tools. I draw from a variety of theoretical perspectives, including cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and solution-focused models. My areas of clinical expertise include ADHD/ADD

learning disorders (e.g. dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia), giftedness and twice-exceptionality, and mood and anxiety disorders (e.g. social anxiety, depressionphobias).  Additionally, I am skilled at helping individuals cope with and manage the all too common issues of adjustments/transitions, self-esteem, procrastination, perfectionism, impact and effects of social media, and relationship issues.

 Occasionally, my dog, Andre, joins me at the office. Learn more about him here
