To reduce the risk of exposure to the coronavirus for you and our staff, we will be using telephone or videophone exclusively to provide psychological services during this health crisis. Teletherapy allows us to maintain continuity of care during this very difficult and disruptive time. Starting immediately we will use telephone or videophone to do all idividual and family therapy sessions and to conduct sessions to give you the results of assessments that have already been completed.
As of Sunday March 22nd, we are no longer conducting any services that require face to face contact. Because psychological and neuropsychological testing and neurofeedback services must be done face to face, all appointments for these services are suspended until further notice. Once the health crisis has passed, we will contact you to re-schedule your appointments.
For remote sessions, both voice and video calls are authorized by insurers during this emergency as long as your policy covers telehealth. (Please check with your insurer to be sure teletherapy/telemedicine/telepsychology visits are covered under your policy.) Instructions to connect with your psychologist for teletherapy are here. Please also complete this online survey so that we have your informed consent to use voice and video calls.
Please be aware also that we may be somewhat delayed in responding to communications from you (including email, telephone calls, and online survey submissions) due to changed staffing patterns related to coronavirus.
Please let us know if you have any questions about these policies. We look forward to continuing to work together during these difficult times.
Our psychological services: lasting solutions based on science and decades of experience
Assessment and treatment services
You have many choices: traditional and innovative approaches.
Many people are helped by traditional forms of treatment like medication and counseling or psychotherapy. But way too many people continue to struggle and suffer with psychological disorders despite multiple attempts to get help. Many go from doctor to doctor. Take pill after pill. Some finally just give up, too discouraged to make another phone call, tell their tale again.
Fortunately, brain science has pointed the way to a promising new approach to therapy. Research has shown that our brains are capable of enormous change. It’s called neuroplasticity. This finding is giving rise to new solutions that harness this capacity for change to treat many psychological disorders or conditions. At the NeuroDevelopment Center, we closely follow the research on these promising approaches. We recognize the need for scientific evidence, and carefully evaluate the research on new therapy methods. But we also realize that it takes decades to compile conclusive scientific proof. You may not want to wait until the research is conclusive. So we offer neurofeedback and Cogmed working memory training and even our Preschool ADHD LEAP program – research supported treatments that harness the brain’s capacity for change through brain exercise and training.
We offer the tried and true as well. Our professionals have decades of experience with proven traditional psychological services like individual psychotherapy, family, and group therapy. At the Neurodevelopment Center, you have lots of choices. Join us. We can sit down together, understand your situation, and decide what approach is the right one for you.
