International expert Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum and her dedicated support and research staff provide a supportive, comprehensive center that addresses the needs of the child, teen and adults with Selective Mutism (SM), related social communication difficulties, and mental health challenges.
SMart Center Counseling & Assessments gives those affected by these challenges—and their families—a place to feel safe, at home, and understood. Because we specialize in treating these disorders, we are able to provide accurate evaluations and testing results to make the necessary treatment recommendations for at home, within the school environment as well as the real world.
“We created SMart Center Counseling & Assessments as an extension of the Selective Mutism Anxiety and Related Disorders Treatment Center (SMart Center). As a result of years of experience treating thousands of individuals around the world, with a philosophy of treating the whole-person and not just a diagnosis. No one patient is the same. We’ve developed SMart Center Counseling & Assessments to help individuals of all mental health challenges.”– Dr. Elisa Shipon Blum, President and Director
