Mental health care sometimes includes Psychological Assessment (sometimes also called psychological evaluation or testing) and my goal is to take the mystery, and more importantly, the anxiety out of the process. Regardless of the type of assessment you may be needing, I will work with you to discover what your goals are. From there, I hope to provide an experience that leaves you feeling informed and equipped to lead a fuller life at home, school, work, and in all of the other communities that are important to you.
Using the most technologically advanced methods available, I offer a variety of assessments for both pediatric and adult concerns, including:
These evaluations include a thorough intake session to understand your needs, a written comprehensive report containing diagnoses (when warranted), and a feedback session with recommendations for continued growth. All reports are personalized and show appreciation for your unique situation, needs, and strengths.
Because my assessments are highly customized, I do not have set fees published online, but I am able to provide an estimate after we talk and explore what is needed. Fee is determined by type of assessment needed, time to do evaluation, and report writing time. Barring extenuating circumstances, my turnaround time is usually 2 weeks after our last assessment session.

Maybe your therapist, doctor, or someone at your child’s school has mentioned assessment, and you’ve found yourself wondering, “What is this?” and “How can it help me?”.
Psychological assessment (sometimes also called psychological evaluation or testing) is a broad term, and it integrates multiple sources of information to answer specific questions. Within the scope of what I do, these sources often include a combination of psychological tests and structured clinical interviews, gathering information from caretakers (if applicable), considering early developmental markers, and integrating other demographic information.
All of these sources are needed because the focus of psychological assessment is to understand you as a whole-person with a multidimensional perspective on the questions we are aiming to answer.
