Psychological Testing and Assessment

What is a psychological evaluation?

At Reflect to Connect Psychology, we provide individualized psychological assessment services to help individuals find answers to their questions, create a clear path toward success, and provide diagnosis. We provide a therapeutic assessment approach that is collaborative and strengths-based. Our goal is to provide an evidence-based psychological assessment to help individuals understand themselves better and create a path for moving forward. We strive to provide our clients with the best possible care while understanding that each individual case is unique. Our services are designed to provide a comprehensive view of an individual’s psychological functioning and provide a personalized treatment plan to ensure the best possible outcome.

How does an evaluation work?

Our Psychological Assessment service offers a comprehensive experience tailored to your needs. We provide an optional consultation to assess your goals, followed by the completion of paperwork, an intake, school consultation, testing, results, and feedback session to discuss assessment results, diagnoses, and personalized recommendations. We also provide a written assessment report summarizing the findings.

General Psychological Evaluation

General psychological evaluations are helpful to answer the following questions:

  • What is going on?

  • What is the right diagnosis?

  • How can I understand myself or my child better?

  • What are the best next steps for my family?

These evaluations can gather information about personality and behavior. These evaluations can also provide a new lens to view yourself and/or your child through by understanding how they see themselves and the world around them.
