Unfortunately, many mental health and health care providers, as well as teachers and schools, do not understand the unique needs and characteristics of gifted and 2e individuals. This can lead to gifted and 2e children (and adults!) getting mislabeled and misdiagnosed. Too many children, teenagers, and adults are provided with unnecessary medication prescriptions and other forms of intervention that do not fully meet their needs, not to mention of lifetime of being misunderstood!
Dr. Terri Lucero, the owner and clinical director of PEAK in Denver and Northglenn, CO, is passionate about providing sensitive and compassionate support to gifted and twice-exceptional children and adults. Dr. Lucero has carefully selected the PEAK Exceptional Services provider team to meet the needs of our unique clients. Our psychologists, therapists, and academic coach understand the challenges of finding appropriate support for gifted and twice-exceptional students. The mission of PEAK Exceptional Services is to offer assessment, counseling, parent consultation, and other complementary support services in one convenient location.
