Therapy Patients

All therapy patients are currently being seen via telehealth. We are accepting new patients who are appropriate to be seen via telehealth.

Psychological Evaluations

Psychological evaluations are currently being conducted via telehealth with examinees who have access to a computer with a stable internet connection, in a private setting. If an examinee does not meet these requirements, we will consider seeing patients in our San Diego office on a case-by-case basis.

Neuropsychological Evaluations

Neuropsychological evaluations are also available to be conducted online via telehealth with patients who have access to a computer with a stable internet connection, in a private setting. However, there may be some cases in which an examinee must do their neuropsychological evaluation in our San Diego office. These are also determined on a case-by-case basis.
