Philosophy of Care

I am pleased have an opportunity to partner with you and support your child's development as fully as possible. I enjoy learning about children through my work which includes playing, talking, and asking questions that can help us understand how children think and feel about the world and act in it. I work with parents to learn about their child's strengths and challenges, environment, families, school, social world, cultural histories, languages, and activities they enjoy. With this information in hand, we work together to better understand your child, and find supports to foster their development, as well as tools that would be helpful for you in your parenting journey.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Enriquez is a clinical child psychologist who enjoys providing care for neurodiverse children, including individuals with autism, developmental, learning and other disabilities, and their families. She serves neurodiverse children who may also have mental health, behavioral, socioemotional, and complex healthcare needs. She provides services which include neurodevelopmental and mental health evaluations, as well as caregiver interventions to help parents learn about best practice strategies to promote the socioemotional wellbeing of their children.
