Helping You Understand Your Condition & Find Solutions
Our psychological evaluations work to help individuals, their treating therapists and medical physicians to diagnose and better understand the severity of a condition. This helps us to understand one’s everyday functioning abilities, and therefore to determine a treatment plan.
Our clinicians use a wide range of standardized tests, to help us compile information regarding an individual’s emotional, social and behavioral patterns, as well as cognitive skills, executive functioning abilities, and other factors that might be impacting your everyday functioning. If you have reached an impasse in your treatment and are unsure as to how to proceed, psychological testing can provide us with the insight needed to determine a course of action.
When undergoing an evaluation, you will have an initial appointment with one of our psychologists, during which we will discuss your concerns and the necessary testing. During a following appointment, we will conduct the testing, which may take a couple of different sessions to complete. Each session will last about two hours, and you will be able to take breaks when you need to. The evaluation involves administering tests and behavior and emotional rating scales. If permitted by you, your evaluator may also speak to those closest to you, as well as treatment providers, to gain more information.
We will then schedule a feedback session, during which we will discuss your results, diagnostic information, and treatment recommendations. We will also provide you with a detailed report of your results that you can share with treatment providers, school or work. Our goal is to provide you with the information and tools you need to achieve results and improve your wellbeing.
