I understand how behavior, emotions, cognitive profile, home life, and school life come together in a child 's world.
Do you have concerns about your child 's learning, social skills, attention, or emotional adjustment ? Common concerns I evaluate and support are Autism, dyslexia, ADHD, nonverbal learning disorder, giftedness, school problems, and anxiety. I also provide "second opinion" evaluations for children with needs. Together we make a blueprint to help your child meet their potential. I have over ten years of experience in pediatric neuropsychological assessment. Please visit at www.jodiecohenphd.com for more information and to schedule a call with me.

The healing process is vulnerable and courageous. Whether you seek healing for yourself or your child , a safe holding space that provides supportive containment and compassion is so vital. I embrace each individual with the knowledge that one is the expert of their own lives. My role is to provide a space to access deeper wisdom and personal expression. I began my career in early childhood education and have brought my knowledge of early childhood development into my work as a therapist, with a focus on attachment, sensory processing and the nervous system constantly informing my work.

I work with children , adolescents, adults, seniors, and families.
Art therapy uses the creative process to identify and resolve thoughts, attitudes, and feelings that present obstacles to emotional and cognitive growth. Art is a language of symbols-the same language of symbols that our subconscious uses in dreams. At Creative Arts Therapy Studio, PLLC, artwork is created to give *voice* to the subconscious allowing patients to deepen insight, increase well-being and build the lives they want to live.

You or your child /teen have the power to make positive changes in order to live a happier, more fulfilling life. You may be thinking about improving relationships, coping more effectively with daily stress, or becoming more successful academically or in a career. Unfortunately, sometimes stress, anxiety, & depression make it difficult to make the changes you truly want. I aim to empower my clients so that they discover (or re-discover) the inner-strength needed to believe in themselves, learn new coping strategies, & achieve their goals.

Areas of expertise with children and adolescents include disruptive behavior disorders, attachment disorders, depression, anxiety, and the consequences of childhood physical and sexual abuse.
For me, psychotherapy is offering patience, understanding, insight, acceptance, compassion, relationship, and a secure base to persons suffering from burdens too heavy to carry alone. I compare myself to a container into which my patients pour their unbearable feelings. My task is to detoxify these feelings and make them easier to understand and tolerate. I help my patients to use healthy relationships with others to meet their emotional needs and the emotional needs of others. To establish and maintain healthy relationships, we work in session on understanding our own and others’ mental states (wishes, feelings, intentions) and how these are connected to how we behave toward each other. Relationships tend to work better when we are able to understand our own and others’ minds and how our minds influence how we behave toward each other.

Do you or your child struggle academically, emotionally, or socially? Does your school not provide necessary testing or learning accommodations and support? Or does your gifted or 2E child not receive the enrichment needed to achieve his or her full potential? Neuropsychological evaluations help students obtain the learning recommendations, school and testing accommodations, or enrichment needed for academic, emotional, and social growth. Clients and families also often find the assessment process therapeutic in itself, as it leads to understanding of individual strengths and weaknesses and clear diagnosis of any disabilities.
