Psychological Testing and Assessment
Are emotional or cognitive difficulties impacting your overall well-being, but you are unsure of their cause or how to identify the type of help you need? Maybe you’ve hit a dead end when searching for answers, or perhaps you’ve already spent valuable time and money on therapy and counseling or medications that proved to be ineffective.
These experiences are often frustrating and overwhelming. Fortunately, there is hope. One powerful way to find the answers you need is through a formal assessment performed by an experienced psychologist.
This type of evaluation stands alone in its ability to provide you with the answers you seek. Ultimately, the assessment will present you with the results of psychological testing and a straightforward explanation of these results. It also explains the root of your symptoms, provides any relevant diagnoses, and recommends the most appropriate treatment for you.
Some common reasons people seek testing include: to understand why they are struggling with school, work, or relationships; to find out the reasons behind mood issues or difficulties with socializing; to obtain an accurate diagnosis and recommendations for treatment; and to gain insight into their personality, which can help illuminate suitable career paths or relationships.

The Assessment Process
While the process and cost will differ for each individual based on your specific needs, a psychological evaluation generally follows a three-session schedule:
An initial session where you describe your reasons for seeking the psychological evaluation and present any relevant medical records.
A second session where you will be administered the appropriate tests.
After you have received and read your report, a third session where your psychologist provides feedback on the results of your evaluation, treatment recommendations, and answers any questions you may have.
