Our Areas of Expertise

We conduct evidence-based evaluations and treatment to address a variety of children's developmental and behavioral concerns to ensure each child the best opportunity to reach their highest potential. We believe that development occurs in the context of nurturing relationships and that shared decision making and a strong alliance between a clinician and family is essential to the success of any intervention.  We use face to face visits and some telemedicine for established patients to best accommodate families busy lives.
