Our practice consists of knowledgeable, dedicated, and passionate psychologists from a diverse background of experiences and training. We provide comprehensive neuropsychological testing and assessment for people of all ages. Every child has unique educational needs that can be identified through a neuropsychological evaluation. If your child is struggling with attention, sensory integration issues, high activity level, impulsivity, low self esteem, difficulty managing frustration, and/or is overly anxious, he or she may benefit from a neuropsychological evaluation. This process can provide deep understanding and accompanying relief, especially when it is difficult to understand what your child needs in order to be successful.
First and foremost we are clinicians who value the relationships we develop with the children, teens and families that we work with. We hope for all interactions to be as supportive and therapeutic as possible, in both psychotherapy and testing interactions. We are neuropsychologists who understand the relationship between brain and behavior as related to learning and developmental issues, as well as clinical psychologists from a variety of background and perspectives who incorporate therapeutic experience and social/emotional components into a full psychological picture to better inform decisions about treatment and support.
Our conveniently located practice, brings over 15 years of experience working with individuals with developmental delays and disorders including Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and Learning Disabilities, as well as psychiatric and social/emotional struggles such as anxiety, depression and attachment issues. We also work with many gifted and twice exceptional children. Neuropsychological testings reveal a child's learning profile and ways to best address learning needs and strengths. Assessments may include an Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale (ADOS) for assessing social deficits when warranted. Testing is also provided for adults seeking clarity about their learning profile and needs in vocational and higher education settings.
Educational consultation is an important part of our practice as the student–school match is essential for children who struggle with learning, social, behavioral, or emotional issues. Our clinicians have extensive knowledge and experience with the various educational opportunities and supports that New York City offers. It is an important part of our evaluation process to help families obtain the environment, services, and supports needed for their child to excel. We highly value and foster the relationships we develop parents throughout this experience, providing them with guidance and support through each step of the process and beyond.
Support and training is also provided to parents through a therapeutic relationship to help them understand and parent children and adolescents with behavioral, emotional, and educational needs. We have expertise in working with children with Autism and other regulation issues. Individual psychotherapy is offered in various modalities to address issues of affect regulation, anxiety, attachment, depression, and trauma for children, adolescents, and adults.
