Cassie Fromowitz, PhD
I am so excited to join Milestones Psychology Group. I love working with children and families and I have a passion for helping individuals grow and overcome challenges through careful assessment and thoughtful treatment.
I often think of neuropsychological assessment as a kind of detective work. I collect and synthesize data to give families a thorough understanding of their children and to unravel the underlying reasons for challenges in school and in day-to-day life. These comprehensive and thoughtful evaluations allow us to identify strengths as well as areas in need of support. We are then able to tailor recommendations for strategies and accommodations to help every child meet his or her potential.
I also provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and lead psychoeducational and therapeutic groups for children and teens. Through this work, I help kids and their parents understand the links between their thoughts, feelings and behaviors and teach them skills to challenge negative thoughts, communicate effectively and cope with life’s stressors. I also love to collaborate with teachers, school administrators and staff. I see school consultation as a critical component in helping kids grow and succeed.
My mission as a clinician is to identify learning profiles and patterns of thinking and to teach skills and develop individualized strategies that effectively support areas of challenge and allow strengths to shine through.
