I provide assessment and testing services to children, adolescents and adults. The testing process is tailored to answer your questions and is focused on your needs. It is highly individualized and varies according to clients’ areas of concern or curiosity. If you are interested in learning more about this process, contact me.

Here are the big categories of the type of insight we can learn about your experience and function-

Psychological Testing: I use well-researched and clinically supported assessments to better understand various aspects of your life. Psychological testing can be used as a tool to aid treatment as it identifies and clarifies your experience and struggles in areas like-

  • mood
  • personality style
  • preoccupations
  • attachment
  • professional orientation
  • attention
  • communication

  • identity
  • social interactions
  • thought process and patterns
  • self esteem
  • family dynamics
  • interpersonal skills and preferences

Psychological testing is often used to assess a diagnosis or a difficulty, which can be helpful when applying for accommodations in school or work. It is also required in the application for special considerations on standardized exams as the SAT, ACT, MCAT, GRE, LSAT and GMAT.

Cognitive Testing:  IQ and Achievement tests help outline the strengths, preferences and challenges of your thought process. These forms of general assessments include clarification of  your current capacities for-

  • abstract thought
  • non-verbal/perceptual reasoning skills
  • problem solving
  • memory
  • visual-spatial ability
  • impulsivity

  • social comprehension
  • organization
  • processing speed
  • judgement
  • verbal learning

Executive Functioning:  EF assessment evaluates self-regulation, problem solving, organization, inhibition, level of activity, planning, capacity for meta-cognition (self-awareness), and working memory.

Additional forms of assessments are Behavioral, these evaluate treatment compliance, behavior in the class room or other settings, aggression, attention,  organic impairment and risk. Behavioral assessments are often used as a complimentary tool when assessing IQ, achievement, and executive functioning.

Neuropsychological Testing: evaluates neurodevelopmental conditions such as ADHD, Autism, concussion, and learning disorders. Neuropsych testing allows a more detailed understanding of the neurological processes involved with language, attention, visual-spatial functioning, memory and executive functioning.
