Our Services

Evaluation Diagnosis

Whether a diagnosis can be made at the first visit or supplemental testing or evaluation is required, this is the place to start when a person is faced with challenges that seem to be psychological or developmental in nature.

Treatment/Follow-Up

At the first visit a treatment plan is put into place to address the needs of the patient. The number of visits also varies and some patients may only require a few visits while others may need long-term follow-up.

Referrals

Often as part of the treatment plan the services of other professionals are required such as school counselors, therapists, pediatricians, testing facilities, inpatient crisis units, drug rehabilitation/counseling facilities, support groups, and others.

Fees

After the first appointment and establishment of the Doctor-Patient relationship, I am happy to work out payment plans if needed for patients.
