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, Specific Learning Disorders, anxiety, depression, and other mood symptoms. I focus primarily on the evaluation of school-age children and teenagers. 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.
