My name is Dr. Linda Wechter-Ashkin. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education from Brooklyn College, a Masters Degree in Counseling from Brooklyn College, A Professional Degree from Fordham University in School Psychology, and a Doctoral Degree in Educational Psychology from Capella University. I am a Licensed and Certified School Psychologist, a Licensed Teacher and a Certified Life Coach. In addition to my private practice I teach Psychology at Palm Beach State College and provide Wellness and Parenting Seminars.I provide solution based therapy for children and adults going through transitions that cause stress, anxiety, depression, and anger. I offer gifted testing as well as educational and neuropsychological testing followed by comprehensive treatment plans for children and adults experiencing academic, cognitive or behavioral underachievement.With a background in education and an understanding of the school system, I provide services to help you as a parent to bring out the full potential in your child, including helping you to navigate the IEP process. In addition I provide career counseling and vocational testing to help individuals looking for a new direction.
When working with children I do my best to empower parents to better understand and advocate for their child. In addition to providing gifted and educational testing, and offering educational and behavioral strategies, I accompany parents to IEP meetings and offer direct support for the child. Having worked with children my whole life I am very kid-friendly and I naturally bond with them. When working with adults I help you to set your goals and to take the proper steps to achieve them. I am problem-centered and solution based in my approach meaning I try to get to the bottom of the problem quickly so that you can start to make the needed changes. My goal is to help you to reach your full potential as quickly as possible as you navigate the transitions of your life.
I am part of many insurance panels including BlueCross and BlueShield, Medicare, Ceridian, ComPsych, , Multiplan, PHCS, TRICARE and various other EAP's so call to see what your session rate will be.
