What is a Psychological Assessment?
Psychological evaluations give you the information you need to move forward and to get the help you need. Whether you are curious if you or your child has a problem like ADHD or depression, need help with learning or behavioral issues, have been asked to have an evaluation by your counselor or for legal reasons, or simply want to understand yourself better, a psychological evaluation is an efficient way to get the information you need.
Some questions that can be answered by psychological evaluations are:
Does my child have ADHD (or do I have ADHD)?
Why am I struggling at work or at school?
Am I depressed or just stressed out?
Why am I so anxious all the time?
Does my child or family member have autism?
Sometimes, people are asked to get a psychological evaluation – for court, probation, or for a doctor who wants to confirm a diagnosis, like ADHD, anxiety, or depression, before prescribing medication.
Psychological Evaluations, Assessments, and Testing that are available include:
ADHD, Behavioral Disorders, and Parent-Child Interactions
Mood (depression, bipolar) & Anxiety (panic, OCD, phobia) Diagnosis
Learning Disorders, such as Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia
Autism Spectrum Disorder (Asperger's)
Giftedness and IQ

We work hard to keep our evaluations affordable while maintaining high quality. Many of our evaluations can be completed in one 2-3 hour appointment with a meeting to discuss the results with you when the report is completed. Some evaluations, such as autism or learning disorders, take more appointments. Prices for evaluations begin at $500 and can vary depending on the complexity of the issue. The price of the evaluation includes everything - the testing appointment, the report, and the results session.
