What we offer

Diagnostic assessments for autism & other concerns

While we focus on older children, teens, and adults, our team is trained to work with individuals across the lifespan. This includes early detection in toddlers along the continuum to adulthood.

Individual therapy

We offer individual therapy to children 7 years old and up, adolescents, and adults of all ages, as well as their parents, their partners, their siblings and their children.

Psychiatric evaluation & medication management

We are proud to offer comprehensive psychiatry services tailored specifically for neurodivergent children, adolescents, and adults.

Process groups for neurodivergent teens & young adults

We offer virtual process groups for teens and young adults to connect with other neurodivergent individuals and discuss relevant topics in a supportive environment, led by one of our clinical psychologists.

Parenting & family support

Research has shown that parenting an autistic child (or teen) can be more stressful than parenting children with other types of challenges. We provide parent and family support, whether it’s for short-term consultations or ongoing therapy.


Sometimes, we know we want some guidance but we don’t know where to begin. We just want to “pick the brain” of an expert. We provide consultation (usually 1-3 sessions) to target short-term issues.
