Dr. Terry D’Elisa

Psychotherapy: My philosophy is that everyone can benefit from increasing their skills in managing personal and interpersonal challenges. Through individual psychotherapy and support/educational groups, I work with my clients to help them develop the skills they need to improve their relationships and their ability to cope with stress. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques based on client needs. I work with children, adolescents and adults.

Psychological Testing: I provide comprehensive evaluations for children and adults for a variety of concerns including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia, Attention/Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Executive Functioning difficulties.
