Academic performance is positively correlated with a balanced schedule (academic, leisure, social) and effective time management. The way we learn is largely dependent on the way we feel. Using coping skills and developing time management skills to avoid “burn out” and exhaustion allows for students to perform well in the class room and develop healthy study habits that will help in college and late in life.

Using psychoeducation to teach how the brain works and when it performs at its peak helps students learn how to maximize their study time, sleep better, and avoid any “all-nighters” and last minute assignments.

Psychological or educational testing may uncover any underlying cognitive issues that may be contributing to problems with memory, focus, inattention, and behavior. Using results and recommendations from a licensed psychologist, we can help develop a treatment plan tailored to the individual’s strength. For the most impactful results, we work collaboratively with school counselors and clinical psychologists in implementing this plan.
