What is a Psychological Assessment?
Comprehensive psychological evaluations (also known as Psychological Assessments) include a series of tests and interviews, which are used to gather important information about the client. The goal of every assessment is to gather information about current functioning, including identifying strengths and areas in need of additional support. After completing the evaluation, we will work together to develop individualized, targeted interventions and supports designed to help facilitate your success!

What do you mean by Comprehensive?
While I tend to use the term Comprehensive Psychological Assessments to talk about the assessments I do, it is important to note that testing does not only include psychological testing.
In fact, most comprehensive assessments will include pieces from several different assessment types. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Psychoeducational assessment for academic concerns
- Neuropsychological assessment to understand how your brain functions
Comprehensive assessment also means that we will look at other possible explanations for symptoms besides the primary diagnostic question. For example, when someone presents with attentional concerns, we look at ADHD first, but we also look at anxiety, trauma, and other possible explanations for the symptoms as needed! This ensures that you walk away from your assessment with answers and targeted supports!
