Psychological Assessments

Are you interested in learning about your child’s cognitive functioning or academic strengths and weaknesses?

I provide assessments to determine if your child or adolescent is experiencing difficulties with attention, behavior, anxiety, depression, and learning difficulties. These assessments may utilize interviews, questionnaires, cognitive testing, and academic achievement testing to determine how to best help your child. You will also be provided with recommendations for next steps.

Note: I do not provide assessments for autism spectrum disorders at this time.




Starting Services

I am excited to work with you and your child! If you want to start therapy services:

  1. Please contact me via telephone (805-242-8077) or email (
  2. We will schedule a free phone consultation.
  3. The first few sessions will help us to determine if we are a good fit and how I can best help you and your child. By the end of the first few sessions, we will develop treatment goals.
  4. After treatment goals are created, we will work towards achieving these goals. Length of treatment may vary.

If you want to start assessment services:

  1. Please contact me via telephone (805-242-8077) or email (
  2. We will schedule a free phone consultation.
  3. We will determine the number of sessions needed to finish the assessment.


Fees will be determined during your initial phone consultation call with Dr. Tarle. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please discuss this at the next appointment or contact Dr. Tarle. All fees are due at the time of appointment. I accept cash, check, or credit card. 

At this time, I do not accept insurance. If you would like to submit paperwork for insurance reimbursement for an out-of-network provider, I am happy to discuss this with you and provide a superbill. 

Social Media and Contact

In order to protect and maintain confidentiality, I do not accept any requests on social media sites or contact via phone text messages from current or previous clients. These methods are not secure, and I may not respond in the appropriate time. Further, this may compromise your confidentiality.

If you need to contact me between sessions, it is best to do so by telephone. For quick issues, such as appointment changes, you are also welcome to send me an email. However, if you are experiencing an emergency, please contact emergency services (e.g., call 911). 

Request a Consultation

If you’re interested in therapy or assessment services, contact Dr. Tarle by phone or email. We will complete a brief phone screener to determine if I can be a good fit for you and your family.
