Clinical psychologist

 

Over the past 8 years Dr. Wolf has worked in wide range of settings such as children's hospitals, pediatric rehabilitation centers, multi-disciplinary therapy clinics, schools, pre-schools, and community mental health centers. She most recently worked in Beijing, China with local Chinese children and students from the international school community. She forged strong working relationships with the learning support teams within the international school community, developing personalized curriculum paths and individual education plans (IEPs) to support children with additional learning needs. 

Dr. Wolf utilizes a strengths-based approach in her psycho-educational evaluations, using a child's personal strengths to guide approaches to learning and recommendations for intervention.  Dr. Wolf's evaluations aim to provide an in depth view of a child's cognitive strengths and weaknesses, specific learning styles, academic abilities, as well as social-emotional and behavioral functioning skills to build a holistic picture of the child's functioning and capabilities across all settings. Her comprehensive assessments provide individualized recommendations for guiding education planning, an intervention plan for remediating areas of academic difficulty, positive strategies to support social-emotional well being, and parent- and teacher-focused tools to support behavioral challenges that may be impacting learning outcomes.

Dr. Wolf and her family have lived in the U.S., Taipei, Beijing, Edinburgh and recently relocated to Hong Kong. She is the mother of two young boys and enjoys hiking, tennis, and traveling on new adventures with her family.
