Child and Adolescent Services at Salem Psychological Associates


Children often demonstrate adjustment difficulties through their behaviors. Tantrums, defiance, or even sullen and depressed moods may signal the need for assessment and intervention. Salem Psychological Associates includes several therapists with specific expertise in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of children’s emotional difficulties. Often children’s difficulties reflect issues that are impacting the family generally. The therapist will meet with families to provide a comprehensive understanding of the nature of the child’s difficulties, including how they may be related to family problems, and work with those impacted to develop more effective ways of coping. Services may include:


  • Psychological Assessment/ Psychological Testing
  • Educational Assessment
  • Substance Abuse Assessment
  • Individual therapy
  • Family Therapy
  • Parenting Education
  • Coordination with school staff for relevant services



Our Clinical staff: The founding clinicians at Salem Psychological Associates were formally the senior clinical staff at Lakeshore Hospital, in Manchester, New Hampshire. Staff at Salem Psychological have been selected based on their years of experience and their enthusiasm for working with clinicians. Staff participate in a series of rigorous interviews to insure that they bring not only a high level of expertise but also an interest in, and enthusiasm for, learning and growth. Our goal is to offer the greater Salem community a high level of expertise, with skills to work with individuals and families of all ages, including early childhood through the geriatric years, and most diagnostic and treatment difficulties.
