Sarah Ann Fontenelle is a Therapist based in USA. My areas of speciality include therapeutic practices. This profile is currently unclaimed; please validate the details are current when communicating with the mental health professional.
I conduct developmental (including autism assessment) and psychoeducational assessments to identify obstacles to socialization and learning, and develop recommendations for IEP/504 plans. I work with parents to help how they relate to their infants/toddlers, children, and teens, particularly tough kids (i.e. oppositional defiant) and children with other daily struggles. I also perform gifted assessments for preschool and school-aged children. For individuals struggling with life transitions, or issues related to anxiety and ADHD, I conduct cognitive-behavioral and organizational training to promote improvements to daily functioning. As a developmental psychologist, I am beholden to peer-reviewed literature as foundational to my clinical approach. I work from a dynamic systems perspective and consider the impact of multiple bioecological forces on microgenetic change over time to determine how to best help clients, particularly parents and students, succeed. “Fortune favors the prepared mind” – Louis Pasteur
