I specialize in psychological, neuropsychological and educational testing for teens and adults. I test for intellectual ability (IQ), mental processing, verbal comprehension, perceptual reasoning, general aptitude, academic potential, and behavioral and emotional functioning. I offer recommendations for any problems found, such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder), ADHD, and family conflict. I also offer psychological evaluations for refugees seeking asylum.
The assessment includes a detailed report and a feedback interview. Assessments can be useful to help select a career, understand problems at school, objectively measure personal strengths and weaknesses and to develop a greater personal understanding and insight.
Common questions include:
Do you take insurance for psychological testing? Due to major changes introduced by insurance companies in January 2019, I am no longer able to bill insurance directly for psychological testing. You can read more about insurance here.
What about fees? I can provide you with a price range for the cost of testing over the phone. For a more accurate estimate based on your particular circumstances, a face to face intake appointment will be required where we go over your concerns, medical history, family history, stress levels, sleep, academic results, and all other relevant information. Afterward, I will provide you with a detailed, no-obligation estimate. The cost of the intake appointment is $164.30, some of which can be claimed on insurance.
If you decide to proceed with testing, a deposit of $500 is required on or before the first day of testing, with the balance due when we go over the results of the evaluation. It is not ethical for me to provide the written report or test results until full payment has been made. Payment can be made by cash, check, or credit card.
