Psychological Testing and Evaluation

Psychological testing and evaluation, sometimes called psychological assessment, involves a series of tests that help a qualified therapist determine the cause of mental health symptoms. The goal of this type of testing is to identify the correct diagnosis and provide the appropriate treatment. The underlying cause of the problems someone is facing isn't always clear and tests can help provide clarity for a wide variety of issues. For example, if a child is struggling in school, they may undergo tests for learning disabilities. Evaluations can also help identify things like personality traits, anger management issues, anxiety, depression, interpersonal skills, memory, ADHD and more.

As a Licensed Master Level Psychologist, I am trained to provide psychological testing.
