Winnie is a trained school psychologist with more than two decades of experience conducting psycho-educational assessments and developing targeted interventions and strategies.

More about me

When my son, Nick, was diagnosed with dyslexia, I started researching how to best assist him.  I had read about the Orton Gillingham method and I wanted Nick to work with someone who specialized in this approach. Therefore, I was excited when I found Winnie’s Place. My son is in kindergarten and Winnie’s patience with working through his frustrations was evident during the first session.  Nick initially expressed how hard many of the tasks were for him; however, Winnie’s caring, patient, and structured approach has really benefited him.
