I have worked with Bonnie for a number of years and she always takes such great care of the clients I refer to her. Bonnie pays close attention to the information highlighted in the neuropsychological evaluations I conduct and uses this to direct an effective plan to improve executive functioning skills.  I have found that her services are necessary for many of the adolescents that I evaluate in my private practice.

I was a Boulder Valley School District 11th grade student who was juggling challenging classes and extracurricular activities. This caused quite a bit of anxiety and I found that my organizational skills needed improvement so that I could manage my assignments, keep my grades up, and turn my work in on time. I worked with Bonnie for several months to develop a personalized system that worked for me. Bonnie was always patient, supportive, and collaborative. We worked together so that I could, over time, do all of the planning on my own with just brief check-ins by Bonnie. This worked out really well because I was able to do my work with much less anxiety and my grades improved dramatically. I highly recommend Bonnie if you are looking to develop skills that will make you more successful in not only high school or college, but in life!

​As someone I thoroughly enjoy working with, Bonnie continually impresses me with her level of professionalism, her natural ability to build trust and rapport with the students and families she works with, and her vast knowledge and skill set in special education to positively impact each student she works with. Bonnie’s collaborative spirit speaks to her strength of passion for providing appropriate coaching in the specific areas needed for each of her clients. I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to network with and learn from this amazing professional!
