Meet Dr. Sarah Banks
I'm a Licensed Psychologist and BCBA with a background in school psychology.
I opened Basecamp Pediatric Psychology because I wanted to support the community through compassionate, meaningful, and effective services.
About me professionally
I'm a clinical provider who values timely, compassionate, and quality services. I have been a provider in Colorado since 2014. My specialty is in "neurodevelopmental disorders", such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and learning disabilities. I also have training in common co-occurring conditions, like mood and behavior disorders. I consider the whole person when assessing and making recommendations. My goal is to give people valuable insight and to help them access supportive services.
As a psychologist with a background in ABA and school psychology, I have a deep understanding of personalized assessment and intervention. I have multiple years of experience working with organizations that offer diagnostic and therapeutic services to neurodivergent children. I have coached, trained, and led clinicians and been a part of multidisciplinary teams. A current partnership I have is with The Learning Zone, a facility school that specializes in using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) to teach students with complex communication needs. I also serve on the Board of Directors of the Autism Society of Colorado. Advocacy is important to me, with past board experience including serving on Colorado's Mental Health Advisory Board.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my partner and two dogs. I also enjoy cycling, writing, finding new places to eat pizza, and catching up with friends. I train in olympic weightlifting four times a week for my mental and physical health. I grew up in McKinney, Texas. Colorado has been my home since 2014.
