Do you have concerns about your mood? Stressed, depressed, or anxious ?
Are you stuck and feel like you're spinning your wheels, not knowing what else to do to feel better and be more productive at work and home?
Are you preparing for a surgical procedure and were sent by your doctor for an evaluation?
These are some of the most common reasons people seek out or are referred for a psychological assessment.
By this point, you’ve already done everything you can think of and things are not getting better. Or maybe they’re getting worse.
Not knowing what’s going on can be frustrating, discouraging, and overwhelming. It also can leave you feeling clueless about what to do next. How can you make things better when you’re not even sure what’s going on? Or, if you know what’s going on, you may not know what to do next.
How Testing Can Help
Evaluation and assessment is designed to give you answers to these questions and clarity about the concerns you have so that you can get the knowledge and insight you have been looking for.
Through a comprehensive evaluation, we can gain valuable information about your cognitive functioning, thoughts, mood, and personality. From there, we can develop an individualized plan of treatment.
That plan, when implemented with the added support of other important people in your life (e.g., doctor, therapist), can help you reach your highest potential, feel more at peace and happy, and be the healthiest version of yourself.
ADD/ADHD Testing (e.g., lack of focus, distractible, procrastination, impulsivity, disorganization)
Psychological assessment for mood, thought, and behavioral concerns (e.g., anxiety, depression)
Psycho-educational testing for learning disorders (e.g., dyslexia), and for accommodations in college, graduate school, or on standardized exams (e.g., GRE, LSAT, MCAT, licensing boards)
Law enforcement and public safety applicant evaluation
STEPS IN THE PROCESS
You will come in for an initial visit, where we can discuss your areas of concern and questions you may have, along with a thorough background. This usually lasts about an hour.
We will also provide you with several questionnaires and behavioral checklists to complete, along with someone who is close to you. This will provide us with additional information about your functioning.
Then you will undergo individualized testing to provide the data and information needed to give you clarity and understanding.
Depending on your specific question(s), testing can last between 3-6 hours over one to two sessions. I know this may seem long, but it is the most accurate way to get you answers.
After testing, we will meet again (usually within a couple of weeks of testing) for a feedback visit to go over all of the results, talk about what they mean, and where to go from here (recommendations/treatment plan).
You will receive a copy of the evaluation report within a few days, and we are happy to send to anyone else at your request (e.g., physician).
