We provide psychological assessment and individual, couples, and family therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. We specialize in working respectfully with: • “Gifted and talented” or “high potential learners” • Intense, sensitive, energetic, and/or creative folks • Autistic people and those living with children or partners on the autism spectrum • People challenged by executive functioning differences, including those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder In addition to working with clients to identify and deal with specific symptoms (e.g., depression, anxiety, or inattention), we often see families for whom, generally, the “standard approach” to parenting, family building, school, or relationships has not worked out. Perhaps a different approach is needed because a child does not fit the “standard model” (e.g., in temperament, intellectual ability, or world view), or because the parents have different values or goals than the mainstream (e.g., pursuing attachment parenting; wanting both structure and warmth in their home). We also work with adolescents and adults who want “more” out of life – more connection, more authenticity, more effectiveness, or more peace.
