Psychological Testing

My Psychological Testing Service provides:Psychological Testing

  • Comprehensive psychological and/or educational assessment of adults, adolescents, and children
  • Objective information to clarify diagnoses and/or rule-out competing ones
  • A sophisticated understanding of current symptoms and functioning
  • An assessment of strengths, weaknesses, including risk factors and underlying pathology
  • Parent/school/physician consultation as needed
  • Full or brief testing, tailored to each individual’s needs

There are several factors that make my services unique:

  • A Focus on Personality: While I assess all of the major psychological functions (e.g., learning, memory, attention), I have special expertise in personality assessment. This means that I am able to integrate the test data in a meaningful, personally-relevant way.
  • A Focus on Development: I take a developmental view, and work to understand current symptoms and functioning in light of the individual’s unique life story. This allows me to see the big picture.
  • Clinical Utility of Reports: I am a clinical and school psychologist; so reports are written so that other therapists understand and appreciate.
  • Timeliness: Reports are generated quickly; in most cases within two weeks of the final assessment.
  • Advocacy: I work hard for the people I assess. This often involves providing a strong, expert presence at school- or work-related meetings on behalf of clients.
  • Realistic Recommendations: Recommendations are provided based upon the test data, which can actually be implemented by parents, teachers, other providers, and clients.
