What Happens in an Assessment?
You will work with one of our trained clinicians to gain a comprehensive understanding of your thoughts, behaviors, and life experiences.
Your clinician will gather information from various sources, such as scientifically validated assessments (beyond screening tests), behavior questionnaires, and input from family members or individuals who are familiar with you.
Your clinician will also work with you from a therapeutic standpoint to make meaning of the assessment results and build a path to helpful changes in your life.
