I am Dr. Astrid Heathcote, licensed clinical psychologist and CEO of Ahwatukee Psychological Services, PLLC. Feel free to browse through my site and please leave comments or questions you may have about my services. I enjoy working with all age groups providing psychological assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for PTSD, anxiety, depression, all DSM V disorders, in the comfortable surrounding of my centrally located office, however I will travel to your site to provide consultation. I am looking forward to talking to you!
I can help you with questions regarding your child/teenager. Be rest assured that most behaviors kids exhibit are normal, however there are some "red flags" when your child/teen may benefit from talking to a psychologist; if your child is not sleeping well and reports not to feel rested when she gets up in the morning. Some kids become anxious when they start kindergarten or transition into middle school and high school. As parents we must be aware that this world is changing quickly and that we often have unreasonable expectations of our children; this has created a highly competitive academic environment with children who may not feel confident about their abilities; a high stress environment with a weak social support system that has created mental health concerns in children and teens of an all time high of 25%.
We must be aware of our children's mental health needs and provide them quickly with psychological "First Aid" when they need it. Parenting can be challenging and I am all about keeping it simple but effective!
Nevertheless, adults need to take care of themselves as well, mental health concerns are also 1 in 4 for adults! I am experienced in diagnosing and treating PTSD, anxiety disorders, bipolar and unipolar depression and will provide you with state of the art, well-researched therapy methods.
