Autism greatly influences the manner in which an individual perceives himself/herself, others and the world in general. As a result, those affected by an Autism Spectrum Disorder often need to learn new ways to cope with and problem-solve challenges of everyday living. Finding a good starting point can be especially difficult as every individual on the Autism Spectrum is unique in both his/her strengths and struggles. In line with this belief, our treatment plans are designed on an individual basis to best reflect the needs of the person.
At New Horizons Wellness Services, LLC we offer a range of counseling services for children, adolescents, adults and families. Our psychologist’s specialty is with individuals coping with the emotional impact of cultural and/or identity issues in family, employment, and/or educational settings; adoption and transracial adoption issues, and families who have a member with an autism spectrum disorder.
We provide comprehensive developmental intervention for children and adults with neurodevelopmental delays, sensory processing disorders, autism spectrum disorder, communication delays and challenges in social-emotional development. Our association of professionals includes a psychologist, occupational therapist, and speech therapist who provide individual and collaborative therapy services in clinic, home and community settings.
