Hi, I’m Abby! I’m a licensed school psychologist based in Florida, and I work with K-12 students. I received my M.S. degree with a specialization in school psychology in 2014, and my certificate of advanced graduate studies, specialist degree, in 2016, from Capella University, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I spent three years at Berlin Brandenburg International School, in Berlin, Germany providing one-on-one learning and behavior support to students. Upon returning to the United States in 2015, I worked as a school psychologist for Lake County Public Schools in Central Florida. Two years later, I transferred to a school in Seminole County.
I have extensive experience in psychoeducational evaluations (cognitive, academic, social/emotional, behavior and autism, and have launched many initiatives that focus on social emotional learning (SEL). In 2019, I created a “mindful moment room” at my elementary school, which gives students the ability to learn and apply self-regulating strategies for positive behavior control. By the end of the school year, detentions and behavior referrals had decreased by 30 percent. I also run several SEL groups for elementary and middle school students, and collaborate with teachers to conduct functional behavior assessments and create behavior intervention plans.
I hold additional certifications in youth mental health first aid, and psychological first aid.
I specialize in: tele-assessments, psychoeducational evaluations, social emotional learning, and behavioral interventions.
I’m from the United States and I speak English.
