My name is Maeve Burke, and my practice serves children and families in Marin County, California. I specialize in working with primary and middle school students.

I believe that a child’s strengths are more powerful than any weakness. Children should not be defined by their limitations but rather by their potential. I believe that children flourish and achieve success when they are supported, encouraged, praised, and above all, permitted to be themselves.

I am committed to the special responsibility that I have as an educational therapist to nurture each child’s individuality, to recognize and appreciate their gifts, to respect their unique learning profiles, and to foster a love of learning and of themselves.

As a parent of a child with a learning difference and a classroom teacher for thirteen years, I see each child through the lens of an educational therapist, but I also bring a valuable parent and classroom teacher perspective to my practice.
