Helen San, LPC, LAC

for individuals, couples, and families

I regret I am not accepting new clients for therapy at this time.

Beginning in June 2023, I will be offering strength-based diagnostic assessments for Autism Spectrum Disorder. The evaluation will include the administration of the ADOS-2, an IQ test (WAIS-IV or Stanford Binet 5), and a variety of self-report measures. The assessment is only available in person. Clients should be prepared to be present for 3-5 hours. Test administration will run around 2-4 hours, plus 1 hour for the diagnostic interview. Self-report measures must be completed before the appointment.

The assessment will cost $1000. If clients have already completed an IQ test (WAIS, WISC, or SB) and can bring in the report, they can skip the SB5 with me and get the evaluation for $700. The IQ test is not optional.

I am currently scheduling only adults who have fluent speech and who are self-pay. I’m ironing out details to be able to bill Medicaid and will announce scheduling Medicaid clients when that comes through. For the time being, adults on Medicaid are being placed on a wait-list. I am also wait-listing children and adolescents, whether they are self-pay or on Medicaid.

If you are interested in this assessment for ASD or being on the wait-list, please call, text, or email me.
