Services

Therapy

Our clinicians provide psychotherapy services to children, adolescents, adults, and families. The course of therapy varies depending on the particular needs and problems each individual or family is experiencing. There are a variety of methods our team may use to deal with emotional or behavioral problems, including a blend of solution-focused and family systems therapies, cognitive behavioral techniques, and relational-interpersonal process therapy. We work with children individually as well as families to address a broad range of presenting problems, including:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Young adult transition and adjustment
  • Emotional dysregulation
  • Family crisis and transitions
  • ADHD
  • Learning disabilities
  • Behavior and adjustment problems
  • School resistance and academic underperformance
  • Social skills and self-confidence
  • Parent-child conflict

ADHD and Executive Skills Coaching

AD/HD and executive skills coaching is a core aspect of our approach to students who are struggling in school. Therapeutic intervention is designed to improve the student’s metacognitive skills, self-monitoring, and behavioral regulation. Our clinicians work with students and families to develop effective compensatory strategies that can be implemented at home and in school. As a treatment team, we use principles of AD/HD and executive skills coaching to address:

  • Homework compliance
  • Organization
  • Time management
  • Avoidance and procrastination
  • Independence in completing daily routines
  • Emotional factors that interfere with learning
  • Study skills and test-taking skills

Neuropsychological Assessment Services

A neuropsychological assessment assists in understanding an individual’s cognitive and emotional functioning, and can aid in the differential diagnosis of neurodevelopmental delay, learning disability, AD/HD, and other disorders caused by neurological injury or altered brain function. During the course of the assessment, an individual may be asked to complete tests of general ability (intelligence), academic skills, visuospatial abilities, perceptual skills, language functions, learning and memory, attention and concentration, complex problem solving, and emotional functioning.

A neuropsychological evaluation is usually conducted in 3 to 4 office visits. During the initial appointment, Dr. Oram meets with the clients and their families to gather information about the presenting concerns and the individual’s developmental and social history. The testing portion of the evaluation is conducted in one or two sessions. A feedback meeting is then scheduled after the testing is completed to discuss the assessment findings and recommendations.
