Dr. Claudia Sickinger, our Medical Director trained in psychiatry at Mt. Sinai Hospital, leads a team of licensed/certified professionals in providing services that are tailored to individual needs. Our intake evaluations involve as wide a "circle of support" as possible and family involvement—consistent with confidentiality and independence—is considered key to successful treatment. An individual’s goals, psychosocial assessment and personal history are analyzed, and a psychological evaluation is conducted to assess the individual’s intelligence level and ability to adapt to the community. We offer full neuropsychological testing to identify neurological, cognitive and psychiatric issues.
