Dr. Glori Gray
Are you looking for psychological assessment of you or your child’s intellectual abilities, learning style, and other psychological needs, including strengths and weaknesses? Do you need specific recommendations for you and/or your child as you make school educational or vocational plans? Trust your instincts. Why not work with someone who has an integrated and informed background in psychological development to support you work toward your goals.
How I Help
As a licensed psychologist, I work with families to capitalize on strengths. My training as a generalist in clinical psychology and health psychology has afforded me experiences in a wide range of issues including anxiety, neurodevelopmental needs such as autism spectrum, dyslexia, and ADHD, as well as more severe concerns such as trauma. My genuineness and follow-through allow me to gain a clear picture of your needs and a lens with which I can develop an action plan to assist.
My work with families started as a licensed clinical social worker in 2003. I wanted more tools to assist families, so I returned to graduate school. In 2013, I became a licensed (clinical) psychologist with children. After collaborating with many specialists in early intervention, hospitals, and pediatricians’ offices, most of my work involves working as a detective of a sorts. I provide comprehensive clinical assessment and evaluation to uncover whatever obstacles might be preventing you and/or your loved one from moving toward their goals.
My psychological testing for children (and adults) is in-depth and collaborative, and I work hard to integrate the results from the variety of referring professionals who have worked with and/or continue to work with you. After a comprehensive assessment is complete, you will be provided an integrated written evaluative report that includes scores, interpretations, and recommendations – whether you are seeking accommodations in the schools for your child or simply looking for treatment options.
My specialties in psychological assessment including evaluating for a variety of neurodevelopmental needs, including autism spectrum testing and related testing. I specialize in administering the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) test and the Monteiro Interview Guidelines for Diagnosing the Autism Spectrum (MIGDAS) to assess for autism-related concerns. I have 20 years of experience with adults and children with spectrum needs. I also evaluate for other neuropsychological and neurodevelopmental concerns (including ADHD assessment, dyslexia testing) as well as for complex social-emotional needs (requiring Rorschach or related personality testing). I carry a small caseload of therapy clients. My approach involves utilizing a biopsychosocial model to support those with:
- emotional, behavioral, and adjustment problems
- learning differences (e.g., dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia)
- feeding and sleeping difficulties
- habit disorders and/or
- developmental delays.

More About Me
For those with therapy needs especially in anxiety (including selective mutism), I recently completed a specialty in a new therapy module with the same efficacy of CBT. The SPACE module, centered out of the Yale Child Study Center; holds great promise for parents looking to support their anxious child in just a few sessions. I am a board member with Psychology for All, an organization that serves uninsured and underserved adults with mental health needs. I’m in the office a few days a week because I spend time with my husband, 4-year-old, and volunteer with nonprofits. Click here to book your consultation. Let’s figure out if you need something more: testing, individual therapy, and or parent support. If you have further questions you can email my assistant, Maria Chin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
