Clinical Services Offered
Parent/Family Support Coaching
Individual, couple or family sessions can be provided to help parents and families obtain insight, improve their relationships, learn concrete evidence-based tools that work. Parents sometimes find themselves feeling as though they are on an island. You've tried everything, read every book, every blog, spoken with every friend or relative that has raised children but you still find yourself feeling frustrated, tired, and even annoyed. The coaching model allows for individualized and objective help to understand universal challenges to raising children as well as identifying, understanding, and making an action plan to address challenges and core issues that are UNIQUE to you and your family.
Greta can serve as a liaison and advocate between you, your child and your school to facilitate communication and treatment planning. She may consult directly with teachers and/or school administration to help develop accommodation plans (e.g., 504 plans, IEP plans) and assist with the Special Education processes (when indicated).

Neuro-Educational Testing with Coastal Educational Services Group
A child can experience difficulties with school for many different reasons. To determine if learning, attentional, verbal, social, and/or emotional problems are interfering with functioning, a diagnostic psychological evaluation may be very helpful. Psychological testing may hold the key in determining why a child is not finding success in the school setting. We will work with you, your child, and school personnel to obtain the answers you need. All evaluations are individualized to meet your child’s specific needs and are done by out of our Coastal Educational Services Group offices. Educational testing is available to assess academic achievement levels including reading, writing, mathematical skills and comprehension abilities. Testing and behavioral interventions for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents is one of our several specialties.
