Emerge welcomes the start of a new school year with exciting updates. Fall brings a fresh start for many of our younger clients. Emerge clinicians are here for guidance and support through a variety of services including psychotherapy, school consultations, parent consultations, neuropsychological evaluations and academic and gifted testing. We welcome exemplary new clinicians to the psychotherapy and evaluation teams.

Both are also clinicians on the assessment team evaluating children, teens and adults. Jeremy Wilson, PsyD Candidate, and Brittany Sovran MA have backgrounds in school psychology and experience working with children and teens and employing cognitive behavioral strategies as well as school consultation. Both are available for IEP support, assessment and psychotherapy. Abbie House, MA candidate, has a background in behavioral therapy and experience working with very young children.
