A psychological evaluation provides specialized assessment of a client’s individual strengths and weaknesses, in order to guide treatment.  The process to receive a psychological evaluation includes at least two appointments.  During the first appointment, a diagnostic interview is conducted to identify the specific needs of the client and areas will be focused on during the evaluation.  Next, the evaluation involves completion of a battery of tests which are scored and interpreted in a comprehensive report.  Finally, the client is provided with a feedback session to explain the results of the evaluation and specific recommendations which will effectively address these findings.

Diagnoses assessed during these evaluations include

• Learning Disorders (including in reading, mathematics, and writing)

• Mood Disorders, including Depression and Bipolar Disorder

• Behavioral Disorders, including Conduct Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder

• Trauma Based Disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Reactive Attachment Disorder
