Meet Dr. Sarah Banks

I opened Basecamp Pediatric Psychology because I wanted to give families a different experience. Together we can see your whole child, celebrate the wins, and work through challenges. I offer support that goes beyond the initial diagnosis.

About me professionally

I am a Licensed Psychologist who values timely diagnosis and intervention. I specialize in the evaluation of Autism Spectrum Disorder, with significant experience in differential diagnosis. That means I have a deep understanding of many conditions and that I consider the whole child in order to make a proper diagnosis. My aim is to help you gain valuable insight into your child and to help you gain access to vital services. 

As a psychologist, I have a deep understanding of personalized assessment and intervention. I have multiple years of experience working at organizations that offer diagnostic and therapeutic services for neurodiverse children. I have also coached and trained clinicians as well as been a part of multidisciplinary teams. Some examples include training Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists on co-occurring mental health conditions, medical necessity of services, whole-child case conceptualization, and progress monitoring. With my background in School Psychology, I bring a deep understanding of the school system and ABA therapy to my services and recommendations. I also enjoy sharing that knowledge with parents and clinicians. I have also had executive-level experience leading and coaching to create change and to build high-quality services. I am an advocate for mental health services, such as my governor-appointed term on Colorado's Mental Health Advisory Board from 2015 to 2018. 


 

 


When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two dogs, and cat. I also enjoy hiking, pizza, and catching up with friends. I train in Olympic Weightlifting four times a week for my mental and physical health. I am a native of McKinney, Texas and I have been in Colorado for over 7 years.
