My primary professional interest is psychological testing and assessment. I evaluate children, adolescents, and adults having a wide array of presenting issues, and I have particular experience in assessing young people for ADHD, learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorders, behavioral disorders, and mood disorders. My passion is for providing the diagnostic clarity that can illuminate the path toward the most effective interventions for the people whom I serve. I also accept a limited number of therapy clients. I work well with children and families having behavioral issues, and with adults experiencing depression, anxiety, and anger issues.
Serving clients of all ages, I provide comprehensive, compassionate, and affordable psychological and psychoeducational testing and assessment services in the Orange County and South Bay areas. Please visit me online at www.socalpsychtesting.com for more information or to request a consultation.
Listed hourly rate assumes fee-for-service. However, some insurance plans are also accepted at my San Pedro office, and certain types of evaluations may be available for a flat fee depending on method of payment. Please contact me for details and to discuss your particular needs.
