My Services

I use my decade-long experience in working with neurodiverse children to help achieve the most beneficial outcomes in all of my evaluation and therapy services.

Autism Evaluations

  • Comprehensive autism evaluations for children and adolescents ages 18 months to 17 years old
     

  • Specialize in more complex presentations, such as older children and adolescents,  females,  and  transgender and non-binary kids & teens
     

  • Offer single-day evaluations for young children between the ages of 18 and 36 months (***this is currently on hold due to COVID-19)

Individual Therapy

  • Collaborative process frequently involving both the child and parents
     

  • Identify useful goals to improve your child's quality of life and experiences in the home, school, & community settings
     

  • Use evidence-based interventions to target identified goals
     

  • Primarily utilize strengths-based CBT (cognitive-behavioral) therapeutic strategies to target goals
     

  • Also utilize other related interventions, such as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) to target anxiety- and OCD-related behaviors

Diagnostic Neuropsychological Evaluations

  • Comprehensive evaluations for school-aged children (ages 5 to 17) to assess for:

    • Inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity (such as seen in ADHD)

    • Learning differences

    • Developmental delays

    • School challenges

    • Disruptive behaviors

    • Mood & anxiety 

Parent Coaching

  • Parenting neurodiverse children often requires a new and advanced parenting skillset
     

  • Parent coaching involves parent-only sessions used to improve overall parenting strategies for neurodiverse children
     

  • Identify specific parent and child goals to treat over 12 to 16 sessions

Post-Diagnosis Support

  • Geared toward parents who recently completed an evaluation for their child
     

  • Short term support (around 1 to 6 sessions) for parents who need some additional help in implementing the recommendations that were informed by the evaluation process
     

  • Option to learn how to use evidence-based strategies to target 1 to 2 goals for your child

Testing for School Programming

  • Cognitive ("IQ") and achievement testing for school-programming purposes, such as private school enrollment and school placement
     

  • Includes brief report
