Dr. Hall is a clinical neuropsychologist serving children, families, and community organizations across Arizona. At Pinnacle Center she provides direct services to clients and training/supervision to graduate students and early career psychologists.
She conducts neuropsychological, psychoeducational, and independent educational evaluations (IEEs) to help identify children's strengths and weaknesses. She also provides diagnosis of childhood disorders when appropriate. Her evaluations involve helping parents understand their child's unique pattern of thinking and behavior. Evaluations end with treatment planning and provision of resources/referrals to address areas of need. Dr. Hall currently sees children through young adulthood (ages 1.5 years and older) who are experiencing difficulties with learning and academics, attention, executive functioning, behavior, mood, daily living, or social skills. She also works with young adults to assist with transitioning to independence and the workforce. Dr. Hall is a founding member of the organization, and as an Arizona native she has a high level of familiarity with the resources available in the community.
Dr. Hall provides consultation services to families adjusting to life with a disability of any kind.
