We provide a variety of therapies and psychological assessments for adults and children. Below, some of our services are highlighted. If you have an issue that you suspect is not on this list, please feel free to contact us, and we will work with you or find someone that specializes in your area.
Our comprehensive ADHD evaluation covers a child’s history of difficulty with skills such as executive functioning and working memory, as well as current cognitive functioning, academic performance, behavior, and screening for social/emotional issues. ADHD manifests itself in a variety of ways. Commonly found traits include the inability to pay attention for sustained periods of time and a lack of self-restraining and self-monitoring abilities.
We also screen for adult ADHD. Often times, children are able to compensate for their ADHD, leaving it unrecognized until they grow up and face large-scale challenges such as graduate school or the pressure of balancing a career and family. Typically, adult ADHD manifests itself differently from ADHD in children. Some indicators of adult ADHD include struggling to be organized, restlessness, distractibility and poor listening skills.
Evaluations thoroughly examine behavioral characteristics, cognitive skills, adaptive functioning (everyday independence), sensory processing, and academic performance. Individuals on the autism spectrum often experience difficulty understanding social cues and communicating, and dislike straying from routines.
This style of counseling combines clinical experience and expertise with a Christian perspective and a focus on Christian values. The focus of counseling sessions is recognizing core problems and using Christian principles to overcome them.
Available for both short and long term periods, our couples counseling focuses on developing healthy communication practices and resolving conflicts.
These evaluations include tests for depression and anxiety, which often go hand in hand. Depression and anxiety manifest uniquely in every person, but some commonly experienced symptoms are fatigue, loss of interest in activities, large increase or decrease of appetite, difficulty concentrating or making decisions, feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness, and restlessness.
Evaluations for emotional/behavioral issues examine past records of conduct, tests on emotional functioning, and interviews of relevant adults in the child’s life. These evaluations focus on problem and adaptive behaviors. Emotional/ behavioral disorder is a broad term referring to individuals who may display maladaptive social or emotional behaviors, have trouble forming healthy interpersonal relationships, or whose difficulty learning cannot be explained by other factors such as learning or sensory issues.
Treatment involving the whole family to focus on issues such as conflict resolution, communication, parenting issues, co-parenting, and more.
Evaluations include comprehensive testing in intelligence, memory, achievement, and neuropsychological processing areas (such as processing speed, visual-motor skills, visual-perceptual skills, auditory processing skills, phonological processing skills, and attention/concentration skills). Additional testing on behavioral, emotional, and social skills are conducted as needed. Learning disabilities are found when children have both the cognitive ability and appropriate environment to succeed academically, but still have difficulty learning.
These evaluations assess cognitive functioning, specifically the way people process information and memory. The focus is not on how well an individual performs on a test, but how efficiently their brain works while taking it. This testing is useful for determining memory issues (such as early onset Alzheimer's or dementia), cognitive processing issues, and related problems such as ADHD.
Counseling in this area focuses on adjusting to this stage in life, often times focusing on issues within a social environment (for example, social anxiety). Counseling can be very important for an individual in this stage, because adolescents experience stress at higher levels than any other age group, and often feel like they are not understood by those around them.
