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.
Psychiatric evaluation & medication management
Process groups for neurodivergent teens & young adults
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.
