Telehealth Remote Services

VIRTUAL ASSESSMENT

Identify potential learning issues with our  Teleneuropsychological Assessment Services for children, adolescents, and adults, which allow us to test your child through the computer in the comfort of your own home. Call or email to learn more about the process. 

Neuropsychological testing measures several aspects of brain processing which include, but are not limited to intelligence, achievementattention, executive functioning (i.e., organization and planning), memory, auditory processing, processing efficiency, and visual-motor integration.

REMOTE COUNSELING

It’s more important than ever to combat anxiety, stress, and fear for ourselves and our children. If anyone needs support or guidance during these challenging times, we are here for you and your family. Our psychologists and other professionals are available for counseling appointments via phone or video call (including our doctoral trainees at reduced rates). We offer remote individual, family, and group counseling (also known as psychotherapy) to address a variety of issues, utilizing a strength-based approach to problem-solving and optimizing growth potential through a developmental lens.

REMOTE CONSULTATION

During these unsettling times, many families are encountering everyday challenges of managing multiple schedules, work, homeschooling, and household tasks, all while living through a pandemic.

Summit Center professionals provide consultation services for your children, teens, parents, and families. These services can help parents who are attempting to manage the “new normal” in their family’s lives; support learning-from-home for uniquely-wired students; and build academic self- confidence, and more.

Our team members also offer remote consultation for a variety of issues such as parenting, emotional sensitivities, learning profiles, giftedness, twice-exceptionality (2e), asynchronous development, differential diagnoses, academic and college preparatory accommodations (i.e., IEPs, Section 504 Plans, College Board accommodation requests).

*NOTE: Virtual testing or therapy outside of the state of California is dependent on licensing laws in your state or country of residence.

Our Philosophy

We utilize a collaborative, strength-based approach to optimize learning, living, and life-long development. We believe that people want to experience meaningful and fulfilling lives.

While emphasizing positive developmental pathways, we acknowledge the inevitable challenges of painful life processes and transitions. Though difficult, these challenges may become catalysts for further growth and change. We seek to enhance each individual’s capacities to connect with others, enjoy meaningful work, and discover their natural abilities for learning, growth and increased well-being.

We serve children, adolescents, adults, and families.
