Hi, I’m Ali! I’m a licensed school psychologist from the United States. I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Michigan, and an educational specialist degree from Michigan State University. Additionally, I have Teaching English as a Foreign Language and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TEFL/TESOL) certification through the International TEFL Academy.
Prior to moving to Germany, I spent three years working as a school psychologist in a K-8 public school in Evanston, Illinois. During this time I had the opportunity to work with a diverse staff and student body and build my skills in comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation, intervention design and implementation, and effective interpersonal service-delivery. In addition to my duties as a psychologist, I have passionately pursued numerous professional development and training opportunities related to issues of racial, sexual, and gender equity, and I co-launched an annual racial equity summit for middle school students.
My specialties include: school-based intervention, psychoeducational evaluation, executive functioning, English language coaching, and school-based equity practices.
I’m from the United States and I speak English.
