Services

Short-Term Therapy

Dr. Leibowitz specializes in assessing and providing interventions to children and adolescents with anxiety, mood, behavioral, attentional and sleep concerns across ages. Dr. Leibowitz uses evidence-based behavioral and cognitive-behavioral principles and collaborates with families to develop effective and individualized plans. Dr. Leibowitz believes in sharing research and best practice with families and working together to determine the best way to implement these approaches for each unique family.

Psycho-Educational Evaluation

Dr. Leibowitz has extensive experience conducting psychoeducational evaluations to assist with academic interventions and to inform therapeutic treatment. These evaluations assess psychological (i.e., anxiety, depression), educational, and social concerns, as well as to determine whether diagnoses of ADHD or learning disorders are warranted.

Assessments include detailed recommendations to assist in navigating concerns in school, at home, at work, and in social relationships. The goal of these assessments and diagnostic services is to provide parents schools with a thorough understanding of each individual’s strengths and areas of growth and need. Dr. Leibowitz has experience in conducting assessments with all ages (i.e., from young children through adulthood). Dr. Leibowitz provides a written evaluation including any pertinent diagnoses and reviews all results during an in-person feedback session.

Cognitive Assessment for Private School Placement or Gifted & Talented Services

Dr. Leibowitz provides testing as requested by private schools or for admissions into gifted and talented programs. These evaluations include a written report, including a description of scores that families may provide to their child’s school along with their applications. In-person feedback is provided to families to explain the information contained in the written report.
