Dr. Camejo is a bilingual (English/Spanish) licensed psychologist who specializes in assessment and treatment of children and adolescents experiencing emotional and/or behavioral difficulties; including anxiety, ADHD, depression, disruptive behavior disorders, social skills issues, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other developmental disabilities.
Dr. Camejo understands the importance of parental involvement in the lives of children and works with families to determine treatment goals. Dr. Camejo utilizes evidenced-based interventions matched to your child and family’s unique strengths and abilities to develop a highly personalized approach. Her goal is to work collaboratively with parents and teachers to improve children’s emotional and behavioral functioning at home and school. Dr. Camejo also conducts comprehensive psychological, developmental, and gifted evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults for the purpose of guiding treatment and intervention.
Dr. Camejo also specializes in treating infants,toddlers, young children, and their families. Often, emotional and behavioral difficulties in older children and adolescents can be traced back to difficulties at a very young age (as young as 2 or 3 years). Research shows that when young children experience emotional and/or behavioral difficulties, these stressors can impact later academic performance and success in school. Enhancing the wellbeing of young children and their families can have powerful effects on preventing these difficulties, improve parent-child relationships, and school readiness.
