What is the first step?
Call the office to explore if we are right for you. If you like what you hear on the phone, schedule an appointment for an assessment.
What occurs during the first meeting?
We engage and observe your child. The history, general information and current concerns are gathered. Both parent and child have the opportunity to meet with the therapist privately. We determine the need for therapy; assess the level of development and the ability of your child to cooperate with treatment. We then assist you to define specific goals and recommend the best course of treatment to reach those goals.
What are the fees?
Fees vary depending of the type of services provided.
Will insurance cover the fees?

How frequent are the sessions?

How long will treatment take?

How do we measure success?
Each child is assessed in specific areas of functioning at the beginning, during and end of treatment. We measure progress by the amount of success in resolving the problems that brought the child to therapy.
