How does an evaluation work?

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

General Psychological Evaluation

General psychological evaluations are helpful to 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.
