Psychological assessment is a non-invasive procedure that can be used to answer a variety of questions posed by a patient, parent (in the case of a child), and/or treating mental health professional. It is a tool for rapidly assessing psychological health, providing diagnostic information, and creating a “roadmap” for treatment. Testing is also a powerful tool for helping people develop deep insight and newfound empathy for difficulties they experience. Testing usually includes the following: obtaining assessment questions from the referring therapist or physician, the client working with me to develop additional questions to be answered by the assessment, completing paper-and-pencil measures, working on various puzzles, self-report tests, and problem-solving tasks, and completing computerized tests. Once testing is completed we will schedule a time to discuss the results and recommendations.
