Licensed Psychologist

Psychological / Psycho-educational Evaluations:

 Psychological and psycho-educational evaluations are available in the following areas:


  • Learning disorders
  • Attention-based disorders
  • Social-emotional difficulties


Evaluations vary  from 5 to 6½ hours, depending on the age of the individual.  The testing is usually broken into two or more days. The process includes evaluations of intellectual functioning, processing skills in the areas of auditory, visual, memory, attention/concentration, and executive functioning, academic skills in the areas of basic reading skills, reading comprehension, listening comprehension, math calculation, math problem-solving, written expression and spelling, and a brief social-emotional assessment. 


Psychotherapy:

Psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and young adults is offered, in addition to parenting education and support.  Dr. Glusman's approach to therapy utilizes a developmental perspective and implements cognitive/behavioral strategies.  The focus of therapy is to provide a supportive environment where individuals can learn to function more successfully within their families and social relationships.
