Typically, our clinical psychologist will meet with you for an initial session to understand your concerns and struggles in the aftermath of stressful and traumatic life experiences. He or she will complete an evidence-based clinical interview and administer scientifically validated questionnaires for the purpose of understanding the nature of your psychological difficulties resulting from exposure to significant stress and traumatic experiences. Your clinical psychologist will then meet with you one more time to ask you additional questions about your experiences, and then provide you with a diagnosis that is most relevant to the symptoms and experiences that you have described.
The entire assessment process, which includes an initial session, clinical interviews and administration of scientific, evidence-based questionnaires, assessment feedback, and a report with recommendations (if needed) will take approximately four weeks to complete. Please consult with one of our clinical psychologists to determine the length of time required to complete your particular assessment.
Following a rigorous assessment and feedback process, our clinical psychologist will provide recommendations for the treatment of your stress-related, trauma or dissociative disorder. He or she will ensure that you are provided referrals to clinicians who have extensive experience and are competent to provide evidence-based treatments for your condition.
