While Dr. Lokken has extensive training in the treatment for multiple emotional and behavioral disorders, her current schedule prevents her from taking any new patients for ongoing therapy. She specializes in psychological assessment and evaluation, and this occupies her entire time in practice. She is not accepting new clients at this time.

Dr. Woodcox is currently accepting new clients for therapy, she specializes with adolescents and adults, and more information can be found about her on the "meet the team" page.
