A comprehensive Psychological Evaluation provides in-depth information that focuses on a person’s unique psychological and cognitive characteristics. Psychological Assessment is an efficient, accurate and objective way of gathering information that can take many months to get from other methods such as psychotherapy.
It offers insight into the severity of a particular problem and the capacity for adequate functioning. An assessment is often helpful to people who have not been helped by psychotherapy, are stuck in their lives, have significant problems in relationships or jobs, suffer from emotional dysregulation, or think they have serious psychological issues.
Psychological Assessments are often requested by psychiatrists, psychologists, and other physicians to help understand and diagnose an adult or child's symptoms in order to provide the most effective treatment.
