Psychological Evaluation Services

Psychological evaluations use interviews and a wide array of assessment tools to clarify diagnoses, illuminate underlying processes, and guide treatment. In short, psychological evaluations provide a way of answering a psychological question about a person. Some possible questions for psychological testing might include:

  • What is underlying my child's depression, anxiety, or concerning behaviors?

  • Does my child have a particular diagnosis (for example, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, bipolar disorder, PTSD, etc.)?

  • Why do my child and I fight all the time?

  • How is my divorce impacting my child?

  • What are my child's thinking strengths and weaknesses?

  • How can I best support my child as a parent?

  • How have my child's early experiences impacted them?

  • What kind of treatment would be most helpful for my child?

  • How is my unique history impacting me as a parent?

Tim and Ashley work from a unique model called Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment. In Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment, the child and family are seen as co-explorers in the assessment process.
