The three of us decided to come together when we realized how well our personal styles mesh with one another. Not only that, but we found that our individual expertise greatly complimented one another. When we began collaborating on assessments and therapy, we discovered that we were able to provide families with a greater understanding of their children than we could on our own.

We all feel strongly that the connections we make with the families are just as important as the work that we do with them. With our strong collaboration and great care, we can support the families we work with to make great strides towards their individual goals.

Each of us received our graduate training at New York University (located on Waverly Place) in different departments. As a tribute to our education and the bond that we feel, we named our practice The Waverly Group.
