About

My practice is focused on providing comprehensive psychological, psycho-educational, and Adhd assessments for children, adolescents, and adults. What particularly captivated me towards working in the area of ADHD and learning disabilities is when I was trying to find strategies raising my own child. Therefore, my knowledge is based on personal and professional experience. Living with someone that has ADHD and learning disabilities helps you to gain a much deeper understanding what a person is going through. The best antidote to under-diagnosis and over-diagnosis is an appropriate evaluation.
I will conduct a thorough assessment, in order to provide you with a treatment plan that would best address your needs. Treatment may be improved with a combination of one or more of the following: individual therapy, couples therapy or group therapy. My practice is also Cogmed certified.
My eclectic background and training prepare me to deal with clients with a wide variety of problems, work related issues, relationship conflict, and a wide variety of mental health problems

New Discovery Psychological Services's Groups

ADHD Group Treatment

When a person's executive functions fail, he has trouble analyzing, planning, organizing, scheduling, and completing tasks. People with EFD commonly lack the ability to handle frustration, start and finish tasks, recall and follow multi-step directions, stay on track, self-monitor, and balance priorities. Fixing the area of a deficit is key to fixing academic or occupational difficulties. The group sessions will be running on a continuous intake basis. You can enter the program at any time. The sessions will repeat so that you do not have to miss a session and can fit your busy schedule.
