A Psychological Assessment is often the first step in psychotherapy or it may be requested as a stand-alone service. 

A Psychological Assessment involves gathering and integrating data to evaluate a person’s behavior, ability, and other characteristics for the purpose of making a diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Psychological or Neuropsychological Testing (the use of standardized measures) may be used to gain greater insight or for a differential diagnosis.

A Psychological Assessment is often requested for those looking for a second opinion or to gain further or objective information about themselves or a child.
