During the current COVID-19 pandemic, I will be offering blended virtual and face-to-face testing, as well as telehealth therapy.
Testing Can't Wait? Evaluations are still critical during the pandemic.
Psychological testing continues with safety precautions:
Virtual sessions whenever possible
In-person sessions using masks and regular hand washing
Maintaining social distancing whenever possible
Stringent cleaning in office before and after sessions
One client per day to minimize possible exposure
Meet Dr. Christine Brendle
I received my Ph.D. from Northern Illinois University in Clinical Psychology. Before beginning my professional training, I worked with foster care children in France and conducted cultural training for families moving abroad. I enjoy traveling, trying new foods, and spending time outside with my family.
I specialize in psychological evaluations for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Specific Learning Disorders, anxiety, depression, and other mood symptoms. I focus primarily on the evaluation of school-age children, teenagers, and young adults. I have experience working collaboratively with schools, therapists, psychiatrists, tutors, and other professionals to provide recommendations and accommodations to support each client appropriately. I strive to customize my approach to best meet the needs of my individual clients.
Additionally, I offer consultation for families who are unsure what type of services would be helpful, and I provide intensive short-term therapy. I provide treatment for anxiety, depression, selective mutism, sleep problems, school refusal, anger, family conflict, parent behavior management, and more.
Psychological Testing is a specialty service offered for individuals needing diagnostic clarity and the development of treatment recommendations.
Consultation Services are necessary for families who would like to discuss concerns and next steps with a clinical psychologist.
Therapy Services provide empirically-supported and goal-oriented treatment for unwanted and uncomfortable symptoms.
What is it?
Psychological Testing typically includes five appointments, blended virtual and in-person:
90-minute initial consultation
five-six hours of testing divided between two-three appointments
90-minute feedback session
Evaluations may also include school observations or the attendance of school meetings, as needed.
I am looking forward to meeting you soon!
