While Dr. Lokken has extensive training in the treatment for multiple emotional and behavioral disorders, her current schedule prevents her from taking any new patients for ongoing therapy. She specializes in psychological assessment and evaluation, and this occupies her entire time in practice.
At this time, Dr. Lokken would be able to refer you to highly qualified providers in her area who have worked closely with her on cases over the years.
