Our goal is to be your ally in reaching your health goals and ensure your success. The pre-surgical psychological assessment typically requires 3 hours of your time. It involves completing written questionnaires, a personality inventory (on the computer), and an interview to discuss your medical history, mental health history, and family/social history.
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.
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.
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.
The psychological assessment typically requires 2 to 4 hours of your time, depending on the reason for the referral. It involves completing some written questionnaires, a personality inventory (on the computer), and an interview to discuss your medical history, mental health history, and family/social history. 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.
An intellectual and cognitive assessment can help identify your intelligence quotient, as well as assess your cognitive functioning and how it affects your daily life. This type of testing 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 geriatric cognitive assessments. 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.
