Psychoeducational Testing

If you feel that your child is having difficulty at school or home and may be struggling with a learning disorder (dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia), attention disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, or other psychological & cognitive concerns, psychoeducational testing can help provide an understanding of those challenges and recommendations on how to better support your child.

Child and Adolescent Therapy

Therapy or counseling can help support a child or adolescent through a variety of challenges from dealing with depression and anxiety to supporting better executive functioning.

Parent Coaching

Raising children can be challenging and sometimes feels isolating. We’re often overwhelmed and unsure of where to look for support. If you are looking to feel more confident in your parenting skills, then parent coaching may be for you.
