Comprehensive Psychological Evaluation

A psychological evaluation is a set of assessment procedures administered to obtain information about an individual’s unique intellectual, personality, and emotional functioning. Psychological evaluations typically are quite expensive when conducted privately. However, we offer such services at a much reduced rate and with your financial needs in mind.

The benefits of evaluations are numerous and the information gathered is long lasting. In addition to many individuals reporting feeling validated by the results, many often say they have learned new things about themselves through the process. If the patient is in psychotherapy, at the Clinic or elsewhere, the evaluation results may be used to inform the therapeutic goals and interventions.

At the Center Clinic, almost all new patients are recommended for a psychological evaluation in order to better assess their treatment needs. Individuals may also seek psychological evaluation separately from psychotherapy services. Evaluations are conducted over a period of 4-8 hours, depending on the battery of tests best suited to the individual’s presenting issues.

We are not able to conduct testing for the purposes of accommodations or special education privileges in schools, or any legal situations, under any circumstance. If learning problems are not central to the evaluation, but might be included in the picture, we may provide information about the strengths and weaknesses of the individual’s abilities, rule out any other factors, and suggest learning strategies.
