Licensed Psychologist

Avital K. Cohen, Psy.D.

I have always enjoyed working with children, adolescents, and their families. Currently, my primary focus is on the assessment of autism spectrum disorders (ASD), as well as other common problems in the pediatric population, including developmental delays, learning problems, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), emotional disorders, behavioral issues, and more. Another area I am passionate about is identifying gifted students, as well as determining supportive services for individuals who are twice exceptional. I am also able to provide a variety of treatment planning/care coordination services, but do not currently offer therapy services. In addition to my work with children and families, I also offer assessment and treatment planning services for adults on the autism spectrum and with other developmental concerns.

I am well versed in Katie Beckett Deeming Waiver and NOW/COMP waiver requirements for evaluation and understand the short time frames in which these evaluations often must be completed.

I began my career as a psychologist serving in the US Army. In support of my fellow soldiers, I deployed to Iraq to provide psychological services. My military experience helped me develop specialized skills for assessing and treating trauma concerns, which has helped me become a thorough and detailed diagnostician.
