Therapy services with Holly Hauser, MA
You’re tired of fighting with your child about homework and getting chores done. You want your child to succeed in school, but despite your help, they still aren’t improving. You wish your child had a mentor to support them and talk through the tough stuff like divorce, death of a loved one, bullying, and other relationship concerns. You’re looking for a structured and organized approach to help your child navigate through life’s challenges. You want an experienced clinician to help your child address and cope with their anxiety, anger, and other difficult emotions that they might not otherwise know how to deal with.
I am passionate about working alongside children and their families to provide support and help create a plan of action. My therapeutic style is warm and engaging, while offering a structured environment for children to actively participate in interventions including therapeutic role play, written activities, organizational skills, and coping skills for difficult emotions (anxiety, anger, depression). I also involve the parent(s)/guardians in the therapeutic process to ensure kids are taking what they learn and applying it at home and school. We will develop a routine for therapy so kids know what to expect when they come and are prepared to work while having fun in the process!J
I also enjoy working with teens, college students, and young adults who may be in the process of discovering their identity and need support in working through the many transitions of life, such as graduating high school, attending college, getting a job, relationship concerns, dealing with parents, and more. Adolescence and young adulthood presents unique challenges and can often lead to feelings of loneliness, sadness, confusion, anxiety, trouble focusing and paying attention, irritability, and anger. Coming to therapy for the first time is a difficult step and requires a great deal of courage! I hope you’ll find that my approach in therapy is inviting, client-centered, relatable, and organized. We will create a plan together to help you meet your personal goals.
Psychological Testing Services with Holly Hauser
You’re wondering why it is so difficult for you to focus on the job or in class or why your child is earning poor grades even though they seem to be grasping the concept. You aren’t sure about how you learn and want to set yourself up for success in college. You can’t seem to retain information and are worried about your performance at work. Your child is really struggling in school and you want to get to the bottom of it. If any of these statements sound relatable, psychological testing may be a good fit for you. I have extensive experience in psychological testing services for all ages (preschool to late adulthood). Many people seek psychological testing to learn more about their personal strengths and weaknesses, to identify a potential diagnosis, and to gather information and answers about the way they learn and/or behave.
Psychological testing is also a useful tool and resource for those who may already be in therapy and are seeking additional clinical information to know if a diagnosis may be present. It is also a great resource if you’re seeking to know more about the way you or your child learns and why there is a struggle academically or at work. I specifically offer testing for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Specific Learning Disability (SLD), Intellectual Disability (ID), and those who may be academically gifted. In addition, I offer psychosocial testing to determine if a clinical diagnosis, such as anxiety and/or depression, is present. My goal is to make sure each client is at ease during the testing process, to gather information in a standardized method, and to give you the feedback and answers to your question(s) in an understandable manner. Please contact me with any questions you may have about the psychological testing process.
