Psychological Assessment

Psychological testing is a valuable tool for elucidating many aspects of one's internal world, such as one's thought process, learning style, mood, personality, and interpersonal manner. Such assessments can also be used to identify individuals with special needs and clarify the root of their particular challenges, such as learning disabilities, sensory processing delays, and trouble with focus and attention. Testing can serve as an important part of an accurate diagnosis of an emotional problem and provide additional information for therapists regarding the nature or factors underlying a patient's psychological distress. Psychological evaluations can be used to determine the influence of stressors on cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning and identify underlying issues that impact an individual's work, school, or interpersonal life. I also administer testing for independent private school admissions.
