Our Approach


Dr. Krantz values working collaboratively with a family and their providers (e.g., psychiatrists, schools; teachers; remedial specialists) to address their child’s current and future needs. A primary goal of assessment is to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that incorporates evidence-based remedial interventions. When warranted, Dr. Krantz will follow a child over time and conduct re-evaluations as required.
