Other Referrals
Once you are an established client, other referrals might be provided on an as-needed basis depending on circumstances, areas of need, and issues to be addressed. I cannot take responsibility for another clinician, diagnostician, or resource's work, but I sometimes am familiar with local names and entities that might be able to further help you, and I might be aware of some themes of their work. During our time working together, I might have referrals to other clinicians, psychiatrists, diagnosticians such as assessment professionals for ADHD, interventionists, resources, family related services, evaluation specialists, and various other resources or sources of assistance and information to meet your needs.
