We provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services for those who wish to establish and enhance behavioral, social, communication and learning skills for themselves or a family member.


Our team of ABA professionals focus on how behaviors change, the role the environment plays and how a person learns best. Our team is dedicated to working with individuals of all ages and partnering with parents, teachers and caregivers to support personal and educational goals.

Life can be difficult and comes with many challenges. We are here to help! Cornerstone Psychological Services of The Arc of the Ozarks provides individual, couple and family counseling with our highly trained professionals. 

Our therapy and counseling services are available to everyone in Springfield and the surrounding communities we serve. We offer personalized care to anyone who has a desire to improve their mental wellness.

Scheduling an evaluation is a good place to start if you, your child or a loved one would like to utilize our Therapeutic Services.


An evaluation is essential to planning next steps for treatment or path to recovery. Our psychologists conduct evaluations assessing a variety of conditions including ADHD, trauma, depression, Personality Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder and anxiety.

Our Occupational Therapy (OT) team provides support with the functions of daily living due to a disability, injury or medical condition.


We focus on a person’s wants and needs and help support their participation in everyday life activities, such as self-care, school, work, play and hobbies. We believe each individual is unique and design a treatment plan based on a person’s specific needs and goals.   


Our therapists are licensed through the Missouri Division of Professional Registration and board certified through National Board Certification of Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).

Our psychiatry staff take a personalized approach to help individuals manage symptoms with medication and support.


Our goal is to work with each patient to determine the best treatment plan possible. Patients work collaboratively with members of the therapeutic team to ensure medications are working well and that the individual is receiving all necessary supports. Appointments can be made in person or via our tele-health program.

Our Speech Therapy team is inspired to support individuals who wish to increase their ability to effectively communicate.


We offer a collaborative approach to speech and language services designed to equip people of all ages to become functional communicators in a variety of environments. Our certified Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) collaborates with a team of speech therapy professionals to assess and create effective treatment plans to reach desired outcomes across both home and community-based settings.
