Personalized Medicine


Psychological assessment will enable the client and treatment provider with information regarding the mental and psychological well being of the client. Psychological assessments are designed not to label, categorize, or diagnose an individual, but assess major symptoms of psychopathology, personality characteristics, and behavioral tendencies. It can assist the advancement of treatment for both the client and therapist, as it may reveal treatment considerations that may have otherwise remained hidden. This can also provide valuable insight for treatment and help select appropriate treatment approaches. With 51 different scales, the assessment has the ability to consider psychological functioning as part of a flexible and realistic continuum rather than simple diagnoses.
Psychological assessments will include a written report regarding the results as well as (if desired) a verbal explanation and discussion regarding the results from the supervising psychologist.
