What we do
We provide play therapy and psychological evaluations for children and adolescents. We also provide behavior analytic services for individuals with special needs. This is important to you because we help to determine what is happening with your child and we give you the support and guidance to better the life of your child.

Dr. Knapp was able to complete my daughter’s psychological evaluation in such a short time! His report was very throughout and enabled us to use our insurance benefits to cover ABA services.

My son loves coming to see Dr. Knapp! He always tells me how much fun he has with him, and I have noticed that my son behaves so much better!
-D.L., Hermosa Beach, CA
Dr. Knapp really understands the IEP process and laws, and took his time to make sure that my husband and I understood it too. With his help and guidance, we were able to clearly articulate our concerns to our daughter’s IEP team and get her more support at school.
-C.W., Palos Verdes, CA
Dr Knapp really connected with my son and really helped me to handle his challenging behavior. Now we get along really well and there is a lot less stress in our relationship.
