Having an accurate diagnosis is paramount to being able to pinpoint what is actually going on with a client. Knowing what the issues are allows for an informed treatment plan to be established as well as realistic goals for treatment. Sometimes psychological testing is necessary to gain more information about the problems at hand and how to treat them.

Our psychodiagnostic team will help clients gain insight into the problems that they may be facing or that their child needs help with. The consultation will begin with a biopsychosocial interview to help gain valuable information about various aspects of the individual. After the initial interview, a specific test battery for the client will be created based on his or her presenting problems and specific testing needs. Testing with minors can often include gaining collateral information from parents and teachers.
