Lara works at the Center for Developing Minds assessing learning and development in children of all ages. She conducts
neuropsychological, educational, and developmental evaluations to determine children’s strengths and

social-emotional or behavioral issues.
Prior to joining the Center for Developing Minds, Lara worked for several years as a school psychologist in
the public school systems of Massachusetts, Arizona, and California. Her insight into the public school system
is based on her work on multi-disciplinary teams leading Student Study Team meetings, and running Individualized
Education Program (IEP) meetings. Lara has consulted extensively with school administrators, psychologists, specialists,
teachers, and families regarding appropriate services, placements, accommodations, and modifications
for preschoolers and school-aged children with exceptional needs.
Lara served as a Board member of the Santa Clara County Association of
School Psychologists (SCCASP), carrying out the duties of authoring and
preserving Board minutes as well as generating and organizing on-going
professional development conferences for school psychologists in the Bay
Area. She maintains memberships to school psychologist organizations at
the local, state, and national level.
Lara holds an M.A. and Specialist Degree in School Psychology from Tufts University in Boston and a B.A. in Psychology
from the University of Maine. She is a Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP) and a Nationally Certified School
Psychologist (NCSP). Lara particularly enjoys being a mom and a step-mom to all the children in her family.
