ABOUT DR. CARA VACCARELLO
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist and Nationally-Certified School Psychologist with extensive training and experience serving the pediatric population. I received my Bachelor's degree from Northwestern University before completing my doctorate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before moving to Denver, I held clinical positions at University of Illinois-Chicago Developmental Disabilities Family Clinics and Rush NeuroBehavioral Center in Skokie, Illinois. Through these experiences, I have had the rewarding opportunity to work with hundreds of children and adolescents with unique neurodevelopmental presentations. I have expertise and passion in comprehensive assessment and support services for children and adolescents with diverse neurodevelopmental disorders and social-emotional-behavioral challenges. I strive to create a positive, comfortable evaluation process for your family so that your precious one has access to the supports to help them thrive.
I love spending time with my family (I'm a proud mom to a rambunctious toddler, adorable infant and the kindest chocolate lab), exploring beautiful Colorado, running, and baking!
