Website

I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in psychological testing and assessment as well as therapy for children and teens. My experiences enable me to listen, assess and diagnose a variety of psychological and educational issues. I also provide therapeutic services in which I encourage and support a variety of people. I use an integrative approach to therapy which allows me to tailor overall therapeutic goals as well as target each individual session to meet your needs at that point in time.

My testing specialties include evaluations for children and teens. Types of evaluations include ADHD, learning disabilities, Asperger's/Autism Spectrum Disorder and evaluations for other emotional disorders. Additionally offered are therapeutic services to children, adolescents, and adults experiencing difficulties with depression, anxiety, Asperger's, ADHD, and other psychological issues.

Finding a psychologist who meets your needs is your highest priority. To save you time and determine if we are a good fit, I offer a 15 minute phone consultation at no charge prior to scheduling your initial session. I also work most weekday evenings to accommodate busy school schedules.

Kristin Dezen's Groups

Child Social Skills Group Therapy (ages 7-11)

Please join our weekly group every Tuesday at 5pm where we will work on conversation skills, joining in, listening, attention, emotional awareness, managing anger and avoiding bullying. Our group will have a maximum of 7 children and while we'll be working, your kids will never know it. We'll incorporate fun and games so that your child will feel more comfortable with the psychologist as well as the other kids. This group is perfect for kids with social anxiety, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other issues that may be affecting their relationships.
