Jeffrey Elder, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist
My focus in assessment is to make sure the concerns and problems that a person is facing are understood and explained.  I bring expertise and knowledge of psychometrically sound assessments and protocols, but my client is the world’s leading expert on themselves.  Together we explore the nature of the symptoms they face and come to a conclusion about what it may mean for them.  My goal is to provide relevant information that can assist my client and those they have trusted with their care make accurate and helpful decisions about treatment and prognosis.  If you are in need of clarification or understanding of the issued you face, I would be happy to help you in that process.
