Psychological Evaluations

Psychological Evaluations

Psychological Assessments (Non-Forensic) and Secondary assessments by appointment only.

Psychological Assessments usually take several meetings of structured interviews. Diagnostic evaluations are based on DSM V Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, American Psychiatric Association. A psychodynamic formulation along with a mental status examination and prognostic indications are given with recommendations as needed.

If you are seeking a diagnostic evaluation for the purpose of a second opinion only, I will, with your written consent, send a confidential copy to the referring physician or clinical practitioner.

Fees are discussed and due at the initial meeting.

For your protection, I do not do evaluations for personal means only. Diagnostic labels primarily pertain to the medical model, of symptoms and deficiency which does not warrant a given understanding of the human condition.

Forensic cases are not accepted.
