Informed by 20+ years experience in private practice, schools, hospitals, child welfare, and as university trainers, we incorporate a collaborative and integrated model of care for children, adults, and families. Using a strengths-based approach, we work closely with clients to enhance day-to-day functioning and overall success. Our goal is to increase the likelihood clients will meet their personal goals and improve their relationships. In a private and comforting environment in downtown Tallahassee, we work with our clients to address many issues that may be disrupting one's ability to live optimally. We use empirically-supported assessment methods and interventions to provide the highest quality care to our clients and their families. We also provide full psychoeducational evaluations to address learning strengths and deficits. Call or email for more information.
Our focus is to work with individuals and families to provide quality assessment and interventions with the goal of helping clients find their strengths, heal from their past experiences, and/or experience growth and personal sense of accomplishment with a treatment plan customized for your needs.
We believe that children, adolescents, adults, and families can experience behavioral change, insight, healing, and growth. We will work closely with you to maximize your personal growth.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that children and adults can experience. In children these may result in unwanted behaviors and physical complaints. Likewise, symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances can foster hopelessness and fear. Through counseling and treatment, clients can begin to grieve and heal. We work with children and adults to address a wide variety of distressing symptoms.
We offer full-battery psychological evaluations for children and adults. Common requests include evaluations for giftedness, learning disabilities, ADHD, behavioral functioning, social-emotional well-being, and adoption/parenting. Results are explained in detail with attention to providing real-world recommendations for intervention supports. We collaborate with healthcare providers and schools when appropriate to complete comprehensive evaluations.
Working with a psychologist can help strengthen emotional connection, decrease parenting stress, improve children's behavior and overall family functioning. We value the role of family relationships when working with our clients. We work collaboratively with you to provide support, improve family functioning, and foster a family's ongoing growth and development.
Groups provide clients with opportunities to gain additional social support from others who share similar experiences or concerns. Skill-building groups can increase client's sense of autonomy and success in classrooms, the workplace, and our community.
Today's world is stressful and balancing one's emotions and the demands of this fast-paced world can be challenging. Relaxation training and cognitive-behavioral strategies can effectively increase one's sense of fortitude. Psychologists work with you to better manage your stress.
Well-adjusted individuals also sometimes want supportive coaches to motivate, problem-solve, and increase their efficiency and productivity, within the workplace and/or school environment. For children we offer academic tutoring to improve learning outcomes and provide stress-free homework support. For adults we provide executive coaching to foster ongoing professional and personal development.
