I can't be more thankful to Dr Conway. She has converted my teenage kid who would absolutely refuse to see a therapist to a kid who looks forward to seeing her therapist. Thank you very much Dr Conway. You have made the biggest impact on our life in a very positive way and we are forever grateful!

Choosing a psychologist is a stressful experience, especially after the less-than-ideal encounter with the previous psychologist that my child met when she applied with Mensa organizations. It can be challenging to trust another professional with such an important assessment, but I'm so glad that we chose Dr. Conway. When we sought Dr. Conway for the IQ test for my daughter's admission for her school, we immediately knew that she was the right person. My daughter and I were anxious at first, but moment we stepped into her office, we felt an incredible sense of comfort, and she welcomed us warmly and made us truly at ease. When the test began, Dr. Conway didn't rush through it hastily, but rather she meticulously attended each part. The entire process from the testing took about little less than 2 hours. Dr. Conway didn't waste our time at all, and she was able to provide the results on the same day of the test. Overall, it was a truely positive experience.If you're looking to get IQ test done, look no further.

Today my son started college. A year and some months after he dropped out of private high school and was diagnosed with autism and mental health issues. We were in a state of crisis from which I couldn't see an off ramp. We worked with Karen who got our son to Destinations (not an easy sell), got him to regular therapy and got us all as a family working with each other instead of against each other. I appreciate Karen's patience and guidance in the process and I know we wouldn't be here, at the other side of the crisis, without her. Thank you!

Our 8 year old has been seeing Dr. Karen for over a year now and she has been a game-changer for our family. What I liked the most is how instantly she connected with our boy and made him feel comfortable enough to trust and open up. She is genuinely caring and gives you great advice on how to advocate for your kid with school. We also did testing with Sara who was great with our boy as well. Highly recommend.

I went to Coastal Psychological Group for neuropsychological testing and had a phenomenal experience! Dr. Conway and Sara are attentive, experienced, and organized. They made the testing process as comfortable as possible, giving me breaks and thoroughly explaining the testing. The office is beautiful and clean. Dr. Conway and Sara wrote a detailed report that will help me be successful with my schooling. I cannot recommend Coastal Psychological Group enough! Much gratitude to Dr. Conway and Sara.

I really can't thank Dr. Conway enough for her insight and all of the help for our family. She has been wonderful to work with, and has made major strides with our daughter's anxiety. Dr. Conway's flexible approach allowed her to conduct remote sessions with us, over zoom, since that was what made us feel most comfortable during the pandemic. She has been a great resource by connecting our family to helpful educational services. Our family unit has been running a lot smoother as a result of our sessions. When it came time to find help for our son, Dr. Conway delivered another successful connection with a qualified member from her team to help him. If you, or your child, need a qualified therapist I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Conway (or her team). I am very thankful that after 7 months of weekly therapy sessions, my daughter is doing very well and we are now able to wind down services but appreciate that fact that Dr. Conway is only a phone/video call away.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Karen Conway over the past several years. Her diagnostic reports are well written, she is thorough, and provides a “spot on” opinion with regard to diagnosis. Her detailed recommendations enable children to obtain the supportive services and accommodations they need in a timely manner. Over the years, Dr. Conway and I have shared many patients together. Parents all over the city reflect that they are thankful for her effectiveness and professionalism. School districts enjoy working with her and seeking her expertise. Some doctors do not listen to the wants or needs of the patient, but Dr. Conway does. She is respectful and clearly interested in the client-clinician relationship which is a rare quality these days.”

“I have known Dr. Conway for many years now and she really knows her stuff. She is a bright light guiding parents to use effective parenting strategies so they can raise children who are bright, competent, and respectful. With compassion and a sense of humor, she helps parents understand the reasons behind the undesirable behavior(s) and proposes effective approaches that can profoundly shift a parent’s relationship with his or her child. So if you feel that your parenting skills could use a booster, Dr. Conway is the right person to help you.”

“I highly recommend Dr. Conway. I’ve collaborated with her professionally for nearly five years. She’s completed numerous neuropsychological evaluations for my students and clients. Dr. Conway is, bar none, one of the most effective and professional psychometricians I have worked with. She is able to elucidate areas of a child’s functioning, providing insight and aiding in direction for my work with my clients. Dr. Conway provides quick turnaround once she receives a referral and maintains an open line of communication. This is of utmost importance for me and my clients. Dr. Conway is an invaluable resource for students, families, schools, and the community.

“I knew I needed professional help for my child and I was lucky enough to meet Dr. Karen Conway. From the very moment we met, I knew she was the exact help we needed. Dr. Conway has an amazing disposition allowing parents the space to be heard and providing the calm when we can’t see it (through our tears). I know we have assembled a team led by Dr. Conway that will ensure our child is prepared for kindergarten and will succeed. There is no way I can properly thank you enough!”

Parent of a 4-year-old little boy

“Thanks Karen – it’s really amazing the transformation I’ve seen in my son. You have been such an incredible gift to us – I was just reading some of the notes I took when our son was having such a terrible time and I can’t believe how different he is now. He is so much happier and the whole house is more peaceful. And we owe much of it to you, so thank you!”

Parent of a 6-year-old little boy

“Karen, thank you so much for taking the time to test our daughter. In the past, we weren’t able to figure out what was going on and why she was struggling at school and was constantly irritable. Your test battery did the trick! You were so patient and supportive to us and our daughter, we now have accommodations for our daughter at school and she is doing well and is proud of herself for the first time in a very long time. Thank you so much for everything!”
