Treatment and Staff
Before beginning treatment at the Diagnostic and Counseling Center, clients undergo an assessment. For children and adolescents, intake assessments include developmental and diagnostic testing to measure intelligence, language ability and social skills, in order to pinpoint the client’s baseline functioning and determine the most effective treatment strategy. For adult clients, evaluations help the staff create a customized therapy plan.
Clients receive an individualized treatment plan with a range of therapy models at their disposal including individual and group therapy as well as couples therapy and individual counseling for teenagers. Group therapy and support groups are also available for the parents and siblings of children with developmental delays like autism and ADHD.
The Diagnostic and Counseling Center team is comprised of Dr. Bahareh Talei, PsyD, a clinical psychologist and Cara Itule, a licensed therapist. Both have years of experience working with children, adolescents and parents of children with developmental disabilities.
The Diagnostic and Counseling Center realizes that treatment does not stop once clients walk out the door. To this end, the team also provides consultations for child care, parental education and finding funding through state programs.
Diagnostic and Counseling Center is a small mental health facility that provides outpatient care for children and adolescents with developmental disorders as well as individualized psychotherapy services for adults, including individual and group therapy sessions. The facility offers a very intimate therapeutic environment where clients will never want for attention. For clients seeking an outpatient facility with qualified and compassionate therapists, the Diagnostic and Counseling Center is a great resource.
