Ask a Therapist: "What is a Psychological Assessment Anyway?"

Ask a Therapist: "What is a Psychological Assessment Anyway?"

By Joey Tadie, PhD

Did you know that Collaborative/Therapeutic Psychological Assessment can actually be a brief, intensive, yet highly efficient way to make positive changes in your life? A thorough assessment can help create a deeper understanding of yourself (or your child) and help you develop a clear game plan for how to improve the situation you face. We are able to offer insight into academic performance, personality traits, cognitive capability, and even clarify mental health diagnoses. As school is currently starting up, it might be a great time to consider an assessment to help you or your child transition into the routine of a school year with new insight on how to be successful. 

At The Catalyst Center, our approach to assessment is a little different from what most people think of when they think of "Psychological Assessment." We focus on maximizing the positive, therapeutic impact of assessment by taking the time to get to know you as a real and complex person. We talk and write in a clear and easy to understand manner that takes all the confusing jargon of psychology and translates it into regular language that everyone can understand. We move beyond trying to put a label on you or your kid and instead work WITH you collaboratively and respectfully to understand what is working and what is not working in your life, why you've gotten stuck in some spots, and most importantly, what we can do to get you unstuck and moving in a healthier direction.

With the recent expansion of our assessment team, we are now able to offer high quality collaborative assessments without the wait! Instead of the typical 4-8 week wait to begin the assessment process, we are currently booking new assessments as quickly as just 1-3 weeks out.

This is a wonderful opportunity to give yourself or your child the gift of being deeply and expertly understood, and receiving a detailed, personalized plan for growth and healing tailored just for you.
