Psychological Evaluations

Psychological evaluations identify and/or clarify the severity of symptoms that may alert the individual, their family, and their healthcare professionals to the presence of life-threatening thoughts or behaviors, and assess the effectiveness of treatment medications and/or psychotherapy. Evaluations involve a diagnostic interview, and may also include tests of mood and personality functioning.

Psychotherapy

Individual psychotherapy sessions usually occur weekly or biweekly over a brief or extended period of time, depending upon individual goals and the severity of symptoms.
