Psychological evaluations assist in exploring behavior, thoughts, and emotions. Psychological evaluations clarify a variety of diagnoses including anxiety, depressions, OCD, bipolar disorder, autism, ADHD, and other mental and emotional health diagnoses.
Psychological Evaluations can be used for diagnosing purposes, for educational purposes, to assist in court cases, to assist in hiring the right candidate, or for medical purposes such as prior to bariatric surgeries.
