Individuals are complex, and the underlying cause of problems is not always clear.  Dr. Ermshar & Associates utilizes psychological tests and assessments to understand the nature of a problem and figure out the best way to address it.  Assessments can address the nature of emotional difficulties, cognitive problems related to brain functioning, achievement deficits in academic settings, and/or career interests and preferences.  Dr. Ermshar and her team provide comprehensive evaluations involving thorough clinical interview, structured diagnostic assessment, collection of collateral information, and interpretation of standardized testing materials.

Neurocognitive Treatment

Cognitive Retraining and Rehabilitation is an empirically validated treatment that improves cognitive and adaptive functioning for individuals with brain injury or cognitive impairments relating to ADHD, psychiatric illness, Dementia, Stroke, or other neurological disorders.  Neurofeedback involves real-time video and sound displays of brain waves, allowing individuals to increase self-regulation and awareness of one’s volitional impact on brain activity.  Research indicates Neurofeedback is extremely effective in the treatment of ADHD, addiction, aggression, anxiety, headaches, insomnia, and other disorders.

Quality of life is often compromised by personal, career, and/or relationship challenges and transitions.  Symptoms that cause depression, anger, anxiety, and other emotional pain can accompany these problems, often outweighing an individual’s ability to cope and effectively attend to daily roles and responsibilities.  Psychotherapy provides a safe, caring, and non-judgmental environment where challenges can be addressed to create positive and lasting change.

Announcing a New Service: Companion & Coaching Service

We now offer Sober Companions, Direct Support Staff and ADHD Coaching Services. Our sober coaches are in established recovery themselves and they will conduct themselves with the highest ethical standard. They are trustworthy, experienced, and professional individuals who are grateful to share their wellness habits, experience, strength and hope with you or your loved one. Our direct support staff meet with participants in their home, public setting, or at a partner site for one-on-one support in skill acquisition and experiential learning. ADHD coaches acknowledge the biological underpinnings of the disorder (inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity); however, coaching addresses the academic, vocational, emotional, and interpersonal life difficulties that are a result of these symptoms and helps clients find ways to overcome these challenges.
