James specializes in testing for children ranging from 3 to 18 years, including the evaluation of cognitive and intellectual abilities (IQ), academic achievement testing and learning differences, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and disruptive behavior disorders. James is also trained to provide empirically-supported evaluations for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) using “gold standard” measures. In addition to assessment James also enjoys helping children build skills and self-efficacy in behavior management, social skills, and social problem-solving.

James is currently offering online therapy or teletherapy to help make psychology accessible to as many people as possible during the Covid-19 crisis. Online counseling is easy to access and just as effective as in-person therapy.
