Client Services

EvoLibri Consulting provides a wide variety of services, geared primarily to those individuals who are neurodiverse -- with Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD, Learning Differences, and Mood Disorders -- whose challenges are often not severe enough to warrant state or federally-funded services, but which nevertheless cause the client great difficulty in life.

  • Coaching – We provide 1:1 counseling and coaching in a variety of areas, focusing on social integration and executive functioning domains such as time management, attention, organization, and emotional regulation. Our clients are typically students (Middle School through College) and professionals seeking performance enhancement.
  • Career Counseling and Job Development – starting with high schoolers, we provide full career/vocational assessment using traditional assessments and our own customized tools to develop a comprehensive transition plan to adulthood – including field of study choices, and vocational and transitional goals. We also provide job development for all skill levels and ages, from entry level to professional placement, with an emphasis on those with hidden disabilities.
  • Independent Living Skills – one of the unique aspects of our firm is that we provide private independent living skills, customized to the client needs. Our ILS services span all domains, from shopping and cooking, to creating and maintaining schedules, to handling financial responsibilities such as creating and staying on budget, paying bills, and saving for the future. Most of our ILS providers are studying occupational therapy or psychology.
  • Social Communities and Support – EvoLibri’s hallmark offering is an ongoing social community for all of our clients – from young teenager through adult. Our social groups are a way for all of our clients to find safe, accepting peers where they can be themselves – and have fun.
  • Therapy for Tweens, Teens, and Adults – Our Marriage and Family Therapists, Leah Even, MFT, and our Registered Intern, Cohen Duncan, provide therapeutic services for neurodiverse individuals. Using CBT techniques as well as other tools, both are excellent in teaching clients skills to deal with depression and anxiety and working with parents and families. Additionally, Cohen teaches social skills in group settings, and Leah provides instruction 1:1.
  • Behavioral Intervention – Our intervention teams, led either by Leah or Cohen, work with the client and the family and/or school to develop a behavior plan that will work, and then provide the professional and paraprofessional support needed to see the client through to success.
  • Case Management – Tying all our services together -- along with those of other professionals and paraprofessionals, is a daunting task. We work collaboratively with psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, private and public schools and families to best serve our clients.

Who Else Do We Serve?

Besides working with neurodiverse teens and young adults, we also provide services for families facing these challenges:

  • School Avoidance/Academic Failure
  • Sleep Phase Delay/Sleep Behavior Challenges
