Marcia Eckerd, PhD

In practice since 1985, I work with children, teens and adults dealing with anxiety, social issues, and those having difficulties with cognitive flexibility, executive functions and coping skills. I specialize in working with individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome and LD, although I work with all clients facing these challenges. I believe with the right tools, change is always possible. I use CBT, meditation, and an eclectic approach tailored to individual style and needs. I also do neuropsychological testing, parenting and school consultations.
