Dr. Jason T. Ruch
I earned my Doctor of Psychology degree from the Graduate School of Applied Professional Psychology through Rutgers University. I have been working for almost 15 years as a Certified School Psychologist where I have gained experience working with students from Pre-Kindergarten through college. I am also a Certified Mental Health Screener where I conduct psychiatric screening evaluations for patients in an emergency room setting. My practice specializes in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and conducting psychological and educational assessments for children and adults. Social skills training and development of plans for behavioral modification are also areas of specialty. I have extensive experience conducting psycho-educational evaluations and assessing for learning disabilities, and cognitive and executive functioning deficits. The purpose of evaluation is to generate evidence-based recommendations that facilitate academic and behavioral development. I also have experience conducting psycho-educational evaluations for college-age students requesting accommodations in post-secondary settings, or for post-secondary examinations (PSAT, SAT, etc.). I frequently collaborate with parents, teachers, service providers, and administrators to support academic and behavioral progress. I utilize a Cognitive Behavioral approach to therapy as I have found that clients respond positively to this modality when it is effectively used in practice. I am a strong advocate for my clients and work tirelessly to ensure that their psychological, emotional, and academic needs are being met.

A Psycho-Educational evaluation determines if your child has a learning disability or other issues that negatively impact his or her ability to learn. It assesses the child's cognitive (i.e. intellectual) abilities, academic achievement levels, information processing abilities, and general emotional and behavioral issues. These evaluations usually measure emotional/behavioral functioning and their impact on the child's academic success.
I strive to help my patients develop the tools they need to cope with all of life’s challenges. Contact me today to learn more and book a session. I am currently accepting most major insurance plans.
