Licensed Clinical Psychologist PSY 24638

Cindy LaCost, Psy.D., is a licensed psychologist (PSY24638). She offers a wide array of assessment services for children, adolescents, and young adults, including psychoeducational, psychological, and accommodations testing in the following areas:

  • Executive function (i.e. attention, memory, initiative, impulse control, planning, organization, problem-solving)
  • Processing (i.e. sensory, auditory, visual-perceptual, visual-motor, visual-spatial)
  • Cognition (i.e. intelligence, speed of thinking)
  • Learning (i.e. oral, written, and pragmatic expressive and receptive language, math, reading)
  • Social development (i.e. friendships, interpersonal relationships, social development, social perception)
  • Behavioral adjustment (i.e. degree of compliant, age-appropriate, pro-social behavior)
  • Emotional adjustment (i.e. self-regulation, self-concept, mood, anxiety, personality)

Because being a parent of a child with special needs is both a gift and a challenge, she also offers psychotherapy to parents. Dr. Cindy LaCost believes this is an important and unique service, as Federal and State laws provide for the special needs of children, but not often for the emotional support and psychological health of their caregivers. She utilizes individual psychotherapy for the treatment of grief, depression, anxiety, and adjustment difficulties. Finally, she provides counseling for children, adolescents, and young adults with and without special needs to address behavioral issues, impulse control, life transitions, and anxiety and mood disorders.

Please note that counseling services may be covered through insurance, but all testing is privately funded.
