Evidence-Based Care


Exceptional treatment begins with comprehensive assessment.  We use evidence-based measures for diagnostic and psychoeducational evaluation so that we may carefully tailor a plan of care for you or your child. We use multiple assessment modalities, including observations, questionnaires, and structured interviews. Our assessment process takes 1-3 sessions, depending on the nature of the issues being addressed.

Once we decide on a treatment strategy tailored to you or your child's needs, NECOA specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other Evidence-Based Treatment Approaches (EBTs), including:
