We provide assessment and treatment of mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, learning challenges such as ADHD and learning disorders, and family issues such as parent-child conflict.
We provide assessment of children’s cognitive, educational and emotional functioning, following a utilization-focused approach. Evaluation is tailored to each student and guided by the specific questions of those involved – child, parent and teachers. Emphasis is placed on communicating the assessment results and recommendations to all stakeholders in a manner that is clear and relevant to their initial assessment questions. Assessments may include evaluation of the following areas: Cognitive functioning, Academic levels, Exceptional students (i.e. Learning Disorders and “gifted” testing), Social-Emotional functioning.
We provide individual psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults, tailored to the unique needs of each individual. Following an insight oriented approach, a central goal of psychotherapy is gaining perspective – for example, seeing how internally held fears, expectations or ideas can shape your experience of life’s events and your relationships with others. A variety of therapeutic modalities may be employed, including play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches. Psychotherapy is liberating because in gaining perspective you are able to see how forces you were previously unaware of were, in fact, driving your actions and reactions. Perspective gives you the ability to evaluate the context in which you live your life more accurately, and so allows you to choose what is right for you with more freedom and control.
