School Consulting

Consulting Psychologist for Charter and Independent Schools, NYC

I’ve spent 20 years in the school system as a School Psychologist, and even though I have retired from my full-time position, I want to continue to share my knowledge and experience to benefit your school and its students. I’m passionate about the service I provide to schools, and I’ve found a way to contribute as a consultant.
