Assessments

The BHC offers a variety of comprehensive assessment services designed to accurately identify mental health disorders and provide diagnostic clarity including psychodiagnostic assessments, ADHD/ADD evaluations, and assessments of memory and cognitive functioning. All assessment services at the BHC include:

Initial Interview

During the initial interview (1.5-2.5 hours), you and your clinician will review your background, any specific questions that you are hoping to have answered, and establish the goals for the assessment.

Assessments

You will be asked to complete various assessments that assist with meeting the goals of the assessment. These appointments range in duration (2-5 hours) and may require scheduling multiple blocks of time depending on your unique needs.

Feedback

During the feedback session (45 minutes) you and your clinician will discuss and contextualize the results and, if appropriate, any evidence-based treatment recommendations.

Detailed Report

A comprehensive report that includes a detailed synthesis of the information obtained will be provided to you or your healthcare provider upon request.

Psychological assessment is a specialized process to identify and differentiate a person’s symptoms, enhance diagnostic accuracy, and provide insight into their daily experience. Comprehensive assessments can:

  • help individuals who are struggling with symptoms like anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, lack of motivation, hyperactivity, trouble sleeping, inattention, addiction, or other distressing symptoms gain insight about what they are struggling with
  • help individuals better understand underlying reasons for their social, emotional, occupational, or other functional problems
  • help individuals better understand and conceptualize psychiatric symptoms
  • help individuals identify evidence-based strategies and interventions best suited to meet their needs
  • for individuals who are already in treatment, provide your clinician with additional information to help inform and guide treatment

Since the BHC is a training clinic staffed by clinicians at different points in their training, we take extra care to try to ensure that individuals work with clinicians who can meet their needs.
