Testing Services ...
We provide neuropsychological assessments for children (ages 2 and up) through young adults. A neuropsychological evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of intellectual (thinking/reasoning) skills, memory and processing skills, attention/self regulation and executive functioning skills, and basic language and visual-spatial skills. In some cases, additional testing is also requested to evaluate social/emotional functioning. Clients often seek testing for diagnostic purposes in order to understand why an individual may be experiencing learning, behavioral, and/or emotional difficulties, as well as to identify needs and recommendations for therapeutic intervention. Insurance will cover testing that is considered medically necessary but will not pay for testing that is solely educational in nature.

The Nurtured Heart Approach...
We are proud to offer The Nurtured Heart Approach, as developed by Howard Glasser, MA, Director of The Children's Success Foundation. This parenting approach has proven especially helpful for children who have been diagnosed with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder and Anxiety or Depression with applications in the home and at school. It helps parents unify, to create successes for the child to experience and set clear limits. It is so effective we often see changes after the first session.

Dialectic Behavioral Therapy for improved emotional coping, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness in relationships. Schema Therapy was developed by Jeffrey Young, PhD. This approach helps to identify and resolve patterns of thoughts, feelings and expectations which keep people stuck in self-defeating behaviors and resolve difficulties in relationships.

Dual Diagnosis and Addiction Services…
