What is psychological testing? Psychological assessments are helpful for finding answers to diagnostic questions that can be difficult to answer from observations or talk therapy alone. Assessments enrich the therapeutic process, can clarify medical diagnoses, and can better individualize academic needs. Your unique medical, family, and emotional history are used to develop a comprehensive and individualized assessment that can be used to:
Develop an individualized therapeutic treatment plan.
- Clarify diagnosis for mood disorders or psychotic disorders.
- Clarify and develop a plan for educational and occupational concerns
- Distinguish strengths and limitations in social, emotional, and behavioral functioning.
At Unvaled Psychological we offer assessments for the purposes of diagnostic clarification, for treatment planning, and for educational/occupational related concerns. At Unvaled Psychological all assessment batteries are uniquely designed utilizing a variety of tests to best identify the needs of the patient as posed by the initial referral question. Not all assessments are covered by insurance and all out of pocket costs will be discussed with you during your initial diagnostic interview.
