When we are struggling emotionally, it can be helpful to reach out to family and friends for support. Sometimes this support is just not enough. At times like this psychotherapy can be a helpful resource. Psychotherapy can be a means to learning how to develop stronger relationships and cultivate our emotional resilience. Psychotherapy can help explore ways to cope with life events in a way that is not just about “getting through it,” but rather learning how to live with and grow from our experiences and traumas in order to feel stronger, assertive, and empowered by our experiences.

Psychological assessments are helpful for finding answers to diagnostic questions that can be difficult to answer from observations or talk therapy alone. Assessments enrich the therapeutic process, can clarify medical diagnoses, and can better individualize academic needs. Your unique medical, family, and emotional history are used to develop a comprehensive and individualized assessment that can be used to:
Develop an individualized therapeutic treatment plan.
Clarify diagnosis for mood disorders or psychotic disorders.
Distinguish strengths and limitations in social, emotional, and behavioral functioning.
At Clinical Psychology and Assessment Services, Inc. we offer assessments for the purposes of diagnostic clarification and for treatment planning. If you are looking for diagnostic clarification only, a referral can be provided (i.e., Evaluations for ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Disabilities, or public service applications).
