Accurate diagnosis is an important place to start. In-depth neuropsychological assessment can reveal insights into how a person thinks, learns, and processes information, and can provide a road map that proves useful for many years to come. This knowledge can open doors to fast-track a child’s progress in school, therapies, or provide details necessary to qualify them for certain services. Neuropsychological assessment is often used to identify conditions such as Dyslexia, Autism, ADHD, and diagnose complex social, emotional and behavioral disorders. This knowledge can support parents in understanding how to better communicate with, guide and support their child. Learn more about Neuropsychological Assessment or schedule an appointment.
Counseling for Individuals and Families Impacted by Autism
It’s hard work living each day with autism, whether you’re a family member or you’re on the autism spectrum yourself. Perhaps you or your child struggle with inattentiveness, social difficulties, anxiety, or other obstacles that make life harder. Counseling can equip you with effective tools to help you manage your stress and reach your goals, regulate strong emotions, improve your relationships or communication skills, or build confidence in your decision-making.
Most mental health counselors are not trained in ways to work effectively with persons on the autism spectrum and counseling is often not as helpful as it could be. What sets us apart from other clinics is that all our therapists have extensive training and experience in providing effective treatment to individuals with autism.
Why a picture is worth a thousand words. Images can tell a story, convey strong messages and emotions, and communicate complex feelings and thoughts. The process of creating images can be a powerful, sensory-based way to explore and express innermost thoughts in a safe and non-judgmental way.
Art therapy is an approach to mental health counseling that uses therapeutic art activities to help people grow emotionally, cognitively, and socially –and does not rely on talk and explanation to facilitate change. No artistic talent is required!
If you find yourself struggling to be understood by others and frustrated by the process of communicating your thoughts and ideas, an art therapy approach to counseling may be a good fit for you. In fact, you may discover that taking this creative path provides a more direct route to a truer representation of the “you” you’re seeking to know and express.
