Psychological & Educational Services, LLC


Welcome to the Psychological & Educational Services, LLC

Psychological & Educational Services, LLC is the professional practice of Dr. Diane L. Whipple, Ph.D. As a child and adult psychologist & therapist servicing Rhode Island, my practice specializes in the needs of children, adolescents, and adults. Clinicians offer a variety of evaluations including brief and comprehensive psychological assessments; review of educational ability in reading, writing, and math; and appraisal of social-emotional skill. We also offer therapy for clients with a variety of concerns regarding learning, attention, anxiety (general, obsessions/compulsions, social, phobias, separation, hair pulling, and skin picking), depression, mood swings, adjustment, social skills and communication, self-injurious behaviors, and dementia.

In addition to working with primary caregivers, clinicians work with staff in daycare/preschool settings and local schools and collaborate with medical professionals and local agencies to ensure coordination of care. Our mission is to highlight the many strengths which children, adolescents, and adults possess that will assist them in setting and meeting personal goals and to educate and empower parents, teachers, and mental health professionals in the valuable work they do with children, adolescents, and adults.
