Dr. Ostmeyer offers a variety of services to help support individuals in their homes and communities. While services at Beyond the Individual, LLC are provided via telehealth or in the natural environment (i.e. home, school, and community), she also provides psychological therapy and assessment services in a more traditional office-based setting. Dr. Ostmeyer is happy to speak with you regarding what service model is most appropriate for you and your family.
Individual & Family Therapy
All services are conducted in the natural environment (i.e. home, school, and community) and telehealth with the goal of immediate generalization of treatment gains to real-world settings and situations. Dr. Ostmeyer specializes in working with clients with externalizing behavioral issues, developmental disabilities, obsessive-compulsive and anxiety disorders, and those who have struggled to access or improve with services in more traditional psychological office settings. Dr. Ostmeyer also provides opportunities for a tiered-service model to help constrain costs incurred by individuals and families.
Behavioral Therapy Groups
Therapy groups are offered based on current demand for specific topics in the areas of parenting, social skills, and improving daily living skills. Groups are provided either in person in a central location (i.e. local library) or online after completion of a training on maintaining group member confidentiality. Please check our website or join our listserve to receive notification of new topics or weigh in on topics for future groups. CLICK HERE for current group offerings.
Dr. Ostmeyer works with schools, agencies, families, and other providers to assist with individualized solutions to specific needs including consultation on individual cases or systems change. This can be a great solution for schools or agencies who need support but are not in a position to fund a full position or those in need of expert guidance on specific cases. Dr. Ostmeyer works with multiple systems to help provide solutions that work across multiple settings and that work within the constraints of each setting.

Psychological assessment is useful in understanding possible underlying mechanisms affecting learning and behavior, determining diagnoses, or qualifying for additional resources or services. Dr. Ostmeyer specializes in the assessment and differential diagnosis of developmental disabilities, behavioral and anxiety disorders, and intellectual disabilities.
FBA & BIP
Dr. Ostmeyer works with families, schools, and facilities to conduct functional behavior assessments (FBA) with or without functional analysis (FA) of problem behaviors to inform the development of an individualized behavioral intervention plan (BIP). Dr. Ostmeyer will provide training for natural supports including caregivers, educators, and staff to help decrease problem behaviors while teaching appropriate alternative behaviors.
