SERVICES:­­

Individual and Family Psychotherapy: Individual and family treatment is provided for children, adolescents, and adults struggling with specific issues.


Assessment for ADHD/Neuropsychological Issues: In an effort to gain a better understanding of issues such as ADHD and executive functioning, an assessment can be provided for children and adolescents (ages 7 and up). An initial evaluation takes place with the child/family members to gather history and current symptoms. This is followed by a brief computer assessment regarding memory, simple and complex attention, general executive functioning skills/deficits, and visual-motor processing.  Upon completion, a brief summary will be provided in writing to the family.­


Group Psychotherapy: Group therapy is provided in several specific groups for children ranging in age from 8 to 24. For specific information about what groups are currently being facilitated, please contact me by phone or email.

This particular communcation may involve academic planning, support with additional providers, etc.
