Psychological Evaluation

Psychological evaluations typically occur when there are questions about or a need for diagnostic clarity regarding a patient’s emotional, social, and behavioral health. This is the next step when something is unable to be resolved during counseling and therapy. Psychological evaluations are shorter than full neuropsychological evaluations and consist of an initial diagnostic interview, one to three hours of testing, and a brief session to discuss results.
