Refer to Child and Family Guidance

(757) 668-8866
Our team provides consultation directed at diagnostic clarification and treatment recommendation. We partner with the family to obtain a history of behavior, emotion and function with attention to genetic, medical, developmental, educational, social and family factors. Our psychologists specifically assess complex cases that involved two or more conditions, such as mood, trauma, attachment, autism/developmental delay, anxiety, executive functioning and environmental factors.
