No matter how equipped we are to handle life’s challenges, there will likely be a point in time when you and your family could benefit from some assistance. Whether your child is going through a rough patch, needs help learning to cope with life changes, or could benefit from skills to manage day to day stress, you have come to the right place. I will provide a compassionate, listening ear as well strategies that will provide mechanisms for change that will help you successfully cope with whatever has been thrown your family’s way.
My name is Kathryn Rossbach and I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Georgia. I hold a PhD and Advanced Certificate in School Psychology along with a MSEd in Bilingual School Psychology from Fordham University. I attended Tulane University where I received a bachelor’s of science degree in psychology and Spanish. I am nationally certified as a school psychologist (NCSP) and am a certified bilingual school psychologist in New York State. I consider myself a scientist-practitioner and am actively involved in both research and practice, and am a published practitioner. My clinical skills have focused on children with autism and other developmental disabilities, children coming from bilingual homes, and children and young adults experiencing behavioral and emotional difficulties. My research interests include the multicultural personality, autism, and positive psychology.
My previous experiences have provided me with comprehensive training in psycho-educational evaluations (both in English and Spanish), diagnostic evaluations, group/individual counseling, behavioral interventions, consultation with teachers and parents, writing and implementing Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs), training school systems on best practices, and system-wide school interventions.
I am equipped to provide a multitude of services, including counseling, psychoeducational evaluations (evaluating for the presence of learning disabilities, dyslexia, etc.), comprehensive psychological evaluation (ADHD testing, anxiety, depression, etc.), and diagnostic testing specific to autism spectrum disorder. My prior training at the Emory Autism Center has provided me with extensive knowledge surrounding autism diagnosis and treatment. Following testing, I will sit down with you to provide a comprehensive feedback session. You will receive a copy of your child’s evaluation report including test results, diagnostic impressions, and specifically tailored recommendations, including potential interventions. I also have experience and enjoy providing counseling. I believe counseling should be relationship-based and results oriented. I look forward to building a strong and comfortable relationship in which I can provide answers and direction for you and your family’s needs.
