Services: Dr. Weisglass provides a number of services including evaluations, assessments, therapy and more!

Synopsis: Cortney and I bonded over coffee and mommyhood! She is very good at what she does, having an extensive background in providing counseling. Her turnover time for evaluation results is amazing ( I have never met someone who is able to write a report and provide full results within 36 hours or less!) and she is thorough. Here are the semantics:

  • She does not accept insurance. Call or email for costs associated with counseling and other services. 
  • She is currently not accepting any new clients until after the New Year but may be able to squeeze in an assessment or two.
