McCray Psychological Services

Conducts autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and IQ evaluations for children in Northern California

Our Philosophy

You are the expert on your child and the psychologist is the expert on psychological disorders. Combining these two types of expertise will create the most accurate diagnosis.  Dr. McCray focus on educating parents about the various psychological disorders their child may have, thus you will ideally have a clear understanding of why your child does or does not meet a particular diagnosis. Dr. McCray finds this helps the accuracy of a diagnosis and prepares parents better for future issues related to their child’s diagnosis. We also understand that how a client presents during an evaluation with a therapist may not fully represent their abilities or how they typically act.

Dr. McCray provide thorough evaluations in a very timely manner.  We encourage you to explore this site to help address your questions or call Dr. James McCray at (530) 318-2131.  He offers up to 15 minutes of complimentary consultation time regarding  services as they may relate to you or your child.
