About

Does the world seem chaotic and to not make sense? Does it seem like you should be able to do more, but just can’t? Does it seem like there are social rules everyone else knows? Does it seem like when things go wrong, it’s your fault, but you don’t know why? Are you exhausted from ‘playing the role' of yourself in your life, trying to ‘do it right'? All families want peace, all individuals want greater ease and understanding in their lives. With over 25 years of providing services to exceptional individuals, I know the importance of having the right support for the need at hand.
At Connections Family and Behavioral Services work with individuals with ADHD, Autism Spectrum, behavioral, learning, and developmental diagnoses. We are passionate about supporting individuals, children, and families with the most effective treatment possible, including assessment, advocacy, and in-office therapy.
Connections Family and Behavioral Services focuses on play, mentoring, role-playing, behavioral and cognitive behavioral methods designed to improve the lives of individuals, children and families; to bring peace to the home and greater ease to life. All our therapists are trained in these modalities.

Connections Family and Behavioral Services's Groups

Connections Family and Behavioral Services

Our mission is to provide top quality evidence based mental health services specializing in individuals with Autism Spectrum, ADHD, developmental and learning disabilities and their families. Our vision is to help individuals experience neurodiversity as a difference, not a deficit, and to feel independent, confident and competent in their lives. We work with children, adults and families to alleviate struggles and support mental health needs. We assess the underlying root cause of these struggles to determine how to build skills in the child, adult and family. We build skills that will help children, adults, and families in the long term.
