School psychologists help children and youth succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. We have specialized training in both education and mental health and know how to identify and lower barriers to learning. These barriers can include developmental or learning disabilities, behavior difficulties, teaching styles, school or classroom climate, problems at home or with friends, and mental health problems such as anxiety or depression.
School psychologists work with students individually and in groups, as well as address school and district-wide issues such as bullying prevention and positive behavioral supports. We use many different approaches, but generally provide these core services: prevention, consultation, evaluation, intervention and research. Our goal is to collaborate with parents, school staff, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments so that all students can learn.
