Description of Services
The Center for Brief Therapy provides comprehensive psycho-educational and psychological evaluations for both adults and children at an affordable price. Evaluations such as these can help determine an individual’s level of intellectual functioning, unique learning style, personality characteristics, present academic achievement, career and vocational interests and aptitudes, and social/emotional needs, while incorporating the impact of situational and environmental factors. Clinicians collaborate with the referral source, educational institution, parents/guardians, and treating clinicians during the assessment process. Our staff are trained to utilize current research findings published by the National Institute of Health & Human Services (NIH) in their conceptualization and diagnosis. Clients are often impressed by the thoroughness of the report, which includes clear, “user friendly” recommendations targeted to improve the client’s learning, attention, interpersonal, emotional, behavior and/or academic success.
