Child Assessments in Fort Worth, TX

As an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)
and Psychological Associate with Independent Practice (LPA) I have worked more than 40 years
understanding and addressing child and adolescent behavior issues. Working in the Fort Worth
area since 1986, I have specialized in offering comprehensive assessments of ADHD (Attention
Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) to help families navigate
the challenges of behavioral and learning difficulties associated with those disorders.

Professional ADD and ADHD Evaluations for Children in Fort Worth.

If you’re concerned about your child’s constant misbehavior at daycare or school, in stores or
restaurants, or at family gatherings, if your child is hyperactive and inattentive, or if your child
just can’t seem to learn things, you’re not alone. Parents often feel overwhelmed and unsure
about how to proceed, especially when options range from disciplinary action to medication.
In such situations, a behavioral assessment will provide a clear understanding of your child’s
strengths and weaknesses, paving the way to tailored interventions and support. My
evaluations include diagnoses and specific recommendations aimed at getting your child quickly
moving in a more positive direction.

Tailored Strategies for Your Child

My assessment will uncover the underlying cause of your child’s struggles, whether it is ADHD,
ADD, a learning disability, or some kind of emotional or environmental factor. My assessment
will be a first step in creating a personalized strategy to help your child. Together we can
explore the most effective approaches, whether they involve behavioral methods, educational
accommodations, or other possibilities.

For many parents, navigating the educational system can be daunting, especially when schools
are hesitant to test or “label” a child. I will provide guidance and support in helping you learn
how to deal with the school system and to work effectively with educators and school
counselors, ensuring that your child receives appropriate support and accommodations to
succeed academically.

performance, reach out to me to schedule a professional assessment.
