Support for gifted and twice-exceptional kids, teens, and families

As a therapist, I collaborate with gifted and twice-exceptional children, teens, and families to understand their strengths and challenges and to nurture their resilience, connection, and well-being. 

As a consultant, speaker, and trainer, I help parents, educators, and other providers support gifted and twice-exceptional kids in new ways. 

As a researcher and writer, I've explored giftedness, twice-exceptionality, assessment, intelligence, and the role of motivation and emotion in education.
