Comprehensive review of an individual’s developmental, behavioral, and psychological history and assessment of current functional behavioral problems. Clinical problems addressed include attention, behavior, emotion regulation and mood difficulties to help guide recommendations for treatment. Psychodiagnostic evaluations without testing include two visits. 


Comprehensive assessment of cognitive, emotional, motor, behavioral, linguistic, and executive functioning. Cognitive strengths and weaknesses in intelligence, academic achievement, memory, visuospatial skills, and visual/auditory attention and processing are assessed for children, adolescents, and adults. The complexity and time involved for individual assessments may vary depending on the referral questions, individual needs, and goals of the evaluation. Typical neuropsychological assessments include as many as four visits (typically 2 hours each) to allow sufficient time for interviews and comprehensive testing. All assessments include a comprehensive report and recommendations for clinical and/or educational services.


We are also able to provide these services to researchers conducting studies in which brief or extensive testing is part of screening or enrollment (i.e., to establish that a participant meets inclusion criteria).  In addition, we can provide consultation to medical providers, educational providers, and investigators.

INdividual and family psychotherapy

Dr. Lakes provides individual and family psychotherapy as well as parent coaching. She uses evidence-based cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal approaches in her clinical practice. Because establishing a strong therapist-client relationship is necessary for positive therapeutic outcomes, the first step is to schedule an intake appointment. During the intake appointment, you can discuss your needs with Dr. Lakes. Together, we'll discuss a treatment plan, which will help you determine if our approach is a good fit for you.
