Psychological Evaluation

Psychological Evaluations are used to help diagnose and treat mental health conditions. Psychological Evaluations involve a full review of the client’s personal, occupational, social, educational, legal, medical, and mental health history; a clinical interview and mental status exam to determine current mental health status; and behavioral observations recorded during the evaluation.

Psychological Testing 

Psychological Testing is conducted when a client’s presenting symptoms and concerns require assessment beyond the limits of a Psychological Evaluation (although all Psychological Testing begins with a Psychological Evaluation). The nature of tests used in Psychological Testing depends on what is being investigated, such as complex mental health symptoms, academic difficulties, changes in cognition, the likelihood of behavioral risks, or eligibility for various treatment and community resources.
