Hello! I am Dr. Alyssa Kerrigan, a postdoctoral school psychologist. My goal as a practitioner is to serve as an advocate for your child’s needs. I have had the pleasure of working with children from 2 years old to 18, with wide variety of diagnoses. I enjoy collaborating with and empowering parents through positive techniques and strategies that help them to better understand challenging behavior. I conduct psychological assessments and psychoeducational evaluations for concerns such as ADHD, Developmental Delays, Learning Disabilities, Giftedness, and autism spectrum disorder. I also provide supportive counseling and evidence-based interventions for school aged-children with socio-emotional difficulties.
I received my doctorate in school psychology from Nova Southeastern University. Through my training, I gained valuable knowledge and extensive experience in the areas of evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment in a wide variety of settings, including schools and foster care. My greatest satisfaction comes from helping my clients build on their strengths, step out with confidence, and gain control of their lives through the goals and strategies we collaborate on together. I look forward to working with you, your child, or teen!
