Psychology Services

We provide psychotherapy, psychological testing, and coaching services to children, teens, and young adults aged between 0–20 years, along with their families. 

Whilst individual therapy sessions may be included, our approach features collaborative, short-term, solution-focused coaching for parents, rather than long-term therapy for children. We work with families because we know your children need you more than they will ever need us. 

What does it look like?

 

In order to get started, we begin with a 90-minute intake assessment in which we ask about the problems and concerns that bring you to our service. We learn about your child and their developmental, medical, social, and educational history. We may take additional sessions to really get to know your situation in more detail before we make our initial diagnosis (if appropriate). Finally, we work with you to put together a treatment plan. The treatment plan helps us create the initial goals of therapy, determine whether you will participate in family and/or individual therapy, and discuss the recommended frequency of therapy. Subsequent psychology appointments are typically 45–50 minutes long.

Psychological Testing

In addition to providing treatment, we also offer a range of various assessments that allow for a comprehensive understanding of your child's needs. Assessment charges are based on the age of the child and the focus of the assessment. All psychoeducational, autism, and developmental delay assessments include:

  1. all testing sessions necessary

  2. a feedback session with parents/guardians to review written results and discuss recommendations (approximately 45 minutes)
