Psychological Evaluation

Helping you seek clarity

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD is one of our most common referral questions. There is an accepted gold standard for evaluation of this diagnosis that is objective and data-based. You can trust our doctors to help answer your questions and provide direction, We evaluate adults as well as children and adolescents.

Anxiety and Depression

Symptoms of anxiety and depression are commonly experienced by everyone at least sometimes. For some individuals, these symptoms have more control over their lives than they do. Evaluation can clarify diagnosis, aid treatment planning, and help document whether current treatments are working.

Autism

Children and adults with autism can have symptoms that range from very mild to very severe. Those with high functioning autism often suffer in small ways for many years, with obvious symptoms affecting their daily life only as they begin to enter adulthood. Sometimes, common symptoms of autism are present in people who don't have autism. This can include nonverbal learning disabilities, sensory processing disorders, stereotypic movement disorders, and other conditions. We provide cutting edge, state of the art evaluations for autism and can help sort out the diagnostic complexity to aid treatment planning.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder is characterized by extreme shifts in mood. Family members often feel like they are living with two different people. This is a condition that is diagnosed too frequently and often incorrectly, yet we also know that many children and adults with Bipolar Disorder go undiagnosed and untreated. If you think you or someone you love may have a serious mood dysregulation disorder such as Bipolar Disorder, contact us for help in finding direction.

Behavior Problems

Many years of research have shown that failing to address behavior problems at an early age leads to continued problems and poor social adjustment later in life. Contrary to common belief, many children do not "outgrow" their behavior problems. We can help provide insight and direction.

Trauma and PTSD

Trauma can occur at any age. Some children and adults are less affected by traumatic events while others prove more vulnerable. Trauma remodels the brain and can cause life-long challenges. There is help. Evidence shows that the effects of trauma can be reduced and sometimes even eliminated. Trauma is very personal and stories about trauma are difficult to share, yet proper diagnosis can prove essential in guiding treatment. We can provide confidential and supportive evaluation services to help define a path toward help and hope.

Intellectual Disability

Most individuals with intellectual disabilities do not look or act differently than their peers. There is usually no physical characteristic that tells us, "It may not look like it, but I'm trying as hard as I can." Many people with mild ID go undiagnosed despite routinely struggling with life. Early identification of individuals with intellectual disabilities is essential to maximize independence and aid transition into adulthood. We can help with early diagnosis and treatment planning.
