She assists parents in exploring their child’s barriers to learning. She guides parents with exploring the stressors which may be affecting their child’s academic performance. Dr. Rubin often finds that bullying, strained family relationships, trauma, or other psychological issues interfere with a child’s ability to learn.  Dr. Rubin helps parents explore their parenting style and works with them to determine if this is helping their child.

Dr. Rubin also works with Neurodiverse couples alongside Dr. Thomas Lucking, PhD who is a published author, speaker, and expert in the field of Neurodiversity.
