Psychological / ADHD AssessmentTo understand what is happening and to develop an effective treatment plan
A comprehensive evaluation to help understand what is going well, what has been challenging and why, spark hope, and provide a great plan for possible next steps. This strength-based and collaborative therapeutic assessment includes focus on:
- Attention, distractibility and executive functions (ADHD symptoms)
- Sadness, mood, anxiety, worry, stress, trauma
- Social and relationship concerns (as a partner, as a parent, as a friend, etc.)
- Concerns at home and/or at work
Process: After a comprehensive clinical interview, completion of questionnaires, collateral information and file review, we will meet for a collaborative feedback session, discuss assessment findings and next steps, followed by a report. The goal of the assessment is to increase understanding of self, and clarify a path, a way forward towards your goals and towards wellness.

A Psychological Assessment can be expanded to include in-person testing with a psychologist to help understand:
- How your (or your child’s) brain thinks and learns
- Cognitive and thinking skills
- Academic abilities and language

Process: After a comprehensive clinical interview, completion of questionnaires, collateral information, file review, and in-person testing, we will meet for a collaborative feedback session, discuss assessment findings and next steps, followed by a report.
