Our Evaluation Professionals​

If you are seeking clarity or an evaluation for a mental health diagnosis, this can be obtained through the process of either a psychiatric or psychological mental health evaluation, though in some instances additional evaluations may be needed to make a determination.

A psychological evaluation is provided by a Psychologist and involves standardized testing (ex. IQ, processing speed, Rorschach test, aptitude testing). 

A psychiatric evaluation is completed by a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner or Psychiatrist. These are generally completed though a clinical interview with the individual and in some cases family members. It may also include other measures (ex. Child Behavior Checklist, Beck depression inventory, Vanderbilt ADHD symptoms checklist).
