A psychological evaluation provides a comprehensive assessment of an individual's behavior, personality, cognitive abilities, and several other domains to provide an objective diagnosis and treatment recommendations. The purpose behind many modern psychological evaluations is to try to pinpoint what is happening in someone's psychological life that may be inhibiting their ability to behave or feel in more appropriate or constructive ways; it is the mental equivalent of physical examination. On average, most psychological evaluations take 3 to 5 hours to complete, but for some clients it may take longer. Short breaks are provided as needed. At this time we do NOT take insurance for psychological evaluations.
Psychological Evaluations conducted with us include mental health or behavioral diagnoses only at this time. Our evaluations cannot assess for neurological problems or learning disabilities such as: ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, or Autism.
