If you or your child have been evaluated before, it may be hard to imagine how such a comprehensive evaluation could be transitioned to a virtual platform. Luckily, many of the validated tests are available online and are just as effective. Our experienced psychologists administer the same tests used to assess various domains, including academic, social, emotional, and executive functioning over a secure, online platform. Additionally, we perform observations in order to complete an assessment, speak to teachers and provide personalized feedback and recommendations.
Teletherapy has been shown to be as effective as office-based care and it allows you to access mental healthcare from the safety of your home, without the stress of sitting in a shared waiting area or meeting with a provider face to face. Our team will work with you on understanding how your problems originated, how they are affecting your life and relationships and developing the coping skills you need to move forward. The goal of therapy, whether it is virtual or in person, remains to challenge your unhelpful thoughts and behaviors and to learn new behaviors to improve your mood and your life.
