Leslie C. Higgins, PsyD

As a clinical psychologist, my theoretical orientation comes from a cognitive behavioral framework. However, I am very eclectic in my approach and use whatever tools and techniques I believe will be helpful to an individual. I have particular expertise in assessment and intervention with patients on the autism spectrum and those with ADHD and anxiety. I have also completed additional training specific to the assessment and treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder in both children and adults. My focus is primarily on children, adolescents, and families; however, I also work with adults who are struggling with family matters, difficult children, parenting, anxiety, and depression.
