The main goal of our comprehensive psychological assessment is to provide clarity and help you understand yourself in deeper ways. In addition to discovering new solutions to current or long-standing problems, psychological assessments are often very helpful in clarifying a diagnosis and generating treatment recommendations for referring professionals, such as your doctor, psychologist, or psychiatrist. Our hope is for you to experience a truly collaborative process during your assessment- one in which we are working together to help you gain insight into your psychological and emotional functioning, assess your strengths, and identify any barriers keeping you from reaching your goals.
Have you ever wondered, “Do I have adult ADHD?” Are you experiencing significant difficulties with inattention, forgetfulness, or poor planning and organization? These difficulties may be negatively impacting various aspects of your life, such as your work, school, or relationships. Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) does not develop in adulthood, but can go undiagnosed until adulthood, especially when the more noticeable symptoms such as hyperactivity are not prominent. There are three types of ADHD: hyperactive, inattentive, and combined. The combined type is the most common, with the inattentive type being the second most commonly diagnosed. In order to make an accurate diagnosis and determine whether you’re experiencing a true attentional disorder, it’s important to take a thorough approach and explore all aspects of your life. Many factors can affect concentration and memory, and perhaps our testing will uncover an entirely different cause for your difficulties. Our comprehensive diagnostic assessment for ADHD will help you answer these questions and provide you with appropriate treatment recommendations and guidance.
An intellectual and cognitive assessment can help identify your intelligence quotient (IQ), as well as assess your cognitive functioning and how it affects your daily life. This type of comprehensive diagnostic assessment can be useful in establishing baseline information regarding your current level of functioning (intellectual, cognitive, and emotional), particularly if you have a family history of neurodegenerative disease or dementia (e.g., Azheimer’s). A baseline can be compared to future evaluations to monitor changes and to help you and your physician make the best treatment decisions.
We also provide cognitive and memory evaluations for older adults. This type of assessment can help your physician clarify a difficult diagnosis, differentiate normal aging from the dementing process, help guide treatment decisions, or assist in developing a baseline and documenting changes in memory or thinking over time. We provide recommendations, such as information for families and caregivers, as well as potential ways to improve cognitive and day to day functioning.
Bariatric – Chronic Pain – Plastic Surgery
Are you a bariatric, chronic pain, or plastic surgery candidate and referred for a psychological evaluation prior to your surgery? Our hope is for you to experience a truly collaborative process during your pre-surgical psychological assessment- one in which we are working together to help you understand yourself better, assess your strengths, and identify any barriers you may need to address in order to have the best surgical outcome. We’ll be able to provide you with individualized recommendations and treatment planning, which can help your medical team and enhance your long-term health outcomes. Our goal is to be your ally in reaching your health goals and ensure your success.
A career assessment can help you find the right job or career based on an evaluation of both your career interests and your unique abilities. Our comprehensive career assessment involves completing a career interest inventory (on the computer), intellectual assessment (abbreviated intelligence testing), a personality styles inventory, and an interview to discuss your psychosocial history, personal goals and strengths, as well as identify any barriers keeping you from reaching your goals. Your report will include a summary of the results, recommendations, and appropriate work accommodations.
