Ask a Therapist: What is Psychological Assessment Anyway?

At the Catalyst Center we practice Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment, a well-researched, individualized approach to assessment that has been shown to be beneficial to those who participate in it. We use assessment as an opportunity for brief treatment geared towards answering your questions and planning your next steps towards living the life you desire. Check out this weekly series highlighting The Catalyst Center's approach to assessment and what types of testing we can do for you.

Therapy Isn't Just for Major Problems.

Is therapy just for severe problems?  Not at all!

  • It can be a very cool experience and often valuable gift to give yourself by having an hour each week to talk about what's going on in your world. This is an hour where a neutral person, who you likely won't otherwise see in daily life, will give you undivided attention and support.
  • Having a therapist all to yourself and having an hour a week to work on you can help you to become a better employee, partner, friend, athlete, or simply a better human being.
