Dr. Paige Hover, Psy.D

Psychologist

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in testing and therapy for high school students, college and grad students and young adults. I often work with people who are perfectionists who also often experience anxiety. Many times, challenges are masked or compensated for with anxious perfectionistic tendencies, until things become a much bigger problem. I focus on my client's strengths and their unique differences to help them identify what contributes to challenges they face and how they can best tackle these challenges. Outside of my clinical work, I spend as much time outdoors with my Australian Shepherd, stand-up paddle boarding is our favorite! I also like to do interior decorating and mentoring other clinicians and grad students.

About

Paige

What specialized training or population-specific expertise do you have?

The bulk of my clinical training was in college and university counseling centers. Therefore, I have a unique understanding of the challenges that students face in college, but also before and after college. I also worked closely with the offices that provided accommodations so I keenly understand how and why assessments are so useful in helping students succeed. I also have specialized training in substance use and clinical assessment which helps me understand all of the many facets that contribute to the challenges your child can be facing.

What advice would you give to a family who is on the fence about signing up for a learning assessment?

The idea of getting evaluated can be very nerve wracking and there can be a lot of stigma associated with being evaluated. But it is actually immensely helpful and the sooner you have an evaluation done, the better. It is best to know what is going on so you know how to address concerns and challenges correctly. A learning assessment is the closest thing we have to an X-ray of learning and behavioral challenges. Once we know what is going on, we can develop a plan to address concerns and help your child feel better.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

Most of the students I work with spend so much of their lives thinking something is wrong with them because they don't understand what is going on. This can lead to low self-esteem. After an evaluation, they have new insight that helps explain their experiences in a non-judgmental way. Once they understand themselves, they feel so much relief! So I'm extremely passionate about being able to help people change how they think about themselves in a positive way with testing.
