Assessments & Reports

We may use formal assessments as part of your treatment and goal setting process.  We only use assessments which are appropriately designed, normed, tested for validity, and are widely considered to be dependable tools by other clinicians.  All formal assessments have limitations and must be applied contextually and with appropriate care.  These are typically used to gather more data about problematic behavior and how it might impact others.  Our online assessments could potentially save an individual 1-2 months of therapy sessions because these provide so much information.  These are the current tests we provide.
