Tiffany Wierzbicki, PhDProvisionally Licensed Psychologist

I’m a provisionally licensed psychologist specializing in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and families. I provide comprehensive assessment services to assess cognitive, adaptive, academic, behavioral, and emotional functioning for children, adolescents, and young adults.  I employ a variety of evidence-based treatment for individuals and families that address disruptive behavior in young children, various presentations of anxiety, depression, and social skills deficits, among other concerns. I most often use a cognitive-behavioral approach and implement more specific forms of therapy when relevant, such as Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). I typically include parents and/or caregivers in treatment, as well as other relevant parties as necessary to assist children and families in meeting their treatment goals.
