Dr. Schuler was a School Psychologist for 11 years in the New Hampshire public school system and continues to maintain licensure in that capacity. She also recently obtained her school psychology license in North Carolina, after relocating from New Hampshire. Dr. Schuler completed her internship at Tewksbury Hospital in Massachusetts where she provided various assessments and clinical interventions for individuals with complex medical and psychiatric conditions. This experience provided a global understanding of the impact of early childhood trauma and lack of early intervention on development. Following her internship, Dr. Schuler completed two years of fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology in Massachusetts where she focused on complex childhood trauma and neurodevelopmental disorders including autism, specific learning disorders, ADHD, and mood disorders. An integral part of her assessment approach is working collaboratively with families and schools to better understand the child’s academic, social, and emotional functioning and use that information to foster development across contexts and empower children to access their full potential. Dr. Schuler has also worked with individuals across the lifespan in psychotherapy and psychological and neuropsychological assessment. In her clinical practice, she takes an eclectic approach specific to individual needs that includes elements of CBT, DBT, ACT, and strengths-based therapy. She also provides group therapy and social skills training.
