Psychological & Neuropsychological Services

We offer a range of psychological and neuropsychological evaluations to assess numerous presenting concerns, including ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, cognitive and memory concerns, anxiety and mood disorders, trauma-related disorders, and other psychological and neuropsychological difficulties. The main purpose of the assessment is to gain a better understanding of a person and their behavior. Our assessments are tailored to the needs of the client and presenting concern.

The evaluation can include cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning, as well as other key aspects of development and functioning, including interpersonal relationships, social skills, sociocultural influences, physical maturation, health, and trauma. Evaluations measure an individual’s functioning at a specific point in time and provide a “snapshot” of a person.

Psychological evaluations provide diagnostic clarification and inform treatment interventions around key aspects of development and functioning, thoughts, emotions, mood, behavior, memory, interpersonal relationships, social skills, socio-cultural influences, physical maturation, and health.

Neuropsychological evaluations assess in greater detail things such as memory, attention, information processing, sensory perception, language, fine motor skills, visual-spatial skills, social perception/cognition, and other neurocognitive processes and provide recommendations for remediating any identified deficits. These evaluations are appropriate for autism, complex ADHD, executive functioning difficulties, some social/emotional concerns, cognitive and memory testing for older adults, and other neurological concerns. These evaluations are often in conjunction with educational and/or speech and language testing, as well as occupational therapy.

Executive Functioning Assessments provide an in-depth and highly individualized look at critical cognitive processes such as decision-making, problem-solving, time management, and organizational skills. Executive functioning encompasses mental skills like working memory, flexible thinking, and self-control, essential for managing daily tasks and achieving goals. Our comprehensive Executive Functioning Assessment goes beyond executive functioning measures used for diagnostic purposes. It is designed to provide valuable insights into an individual’s strengths and areas for improvement as well as coaching to help implement recommendations and make impactful change.

Psychoeducational evaluations combine psychological/neuropsychological testing and educational testing. These are appropriate for questions of learning disabilities and significant academic difficulties or lack of progress in reading, writing or math.

You can discuss this option during your consultation appointment.

These evaluations are tailored for each individual and take place over several sessions. These evaluations are not considered medically necessary and are not typically covered by insurance.
