I also have run for the past 20 years a therapeutic program for high functioning preschool, school age and middle school students on the Autism Spectrum and their parents.
My ideal client is a child or adolescent who is aware of the issues that are bothering them and want help. These are clients whose parents are comfortable with them seeing a therapist and are able to speak openly with them about their diagnoses. When I am asked how long I see a client, I do not give a definite time since I have learned that issues are challenged as they make the transition to new schools or jobs. I let parents know that I take a developmental approach to psychopathology. We may stop when symptoms decrease and their coping capacity increases. If they return it is not a sign of failure but different stresses.

My practice is focused on neuropsychological and educational assessment of children and adolescents. Evaluations are individualized for every child, but commonly test for learning disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and other mental health conditions (depression, anxiety, trauma-related disorders, etc.). Regardless of any diagnostic labels, assessments seek to illuminate your child’s strengths, identify areas of challenge, and provide specific, evidence-based recommendations to support their success in school and beyond.
