Collaborative Therapeutic Assessment

Sometimes digging deep and taking the time to really understand what is going on is the best way to start making a change in your life. Psychological assessment can be a powerful tool to understand yourself and what is getting in the way of living your best life.

At The Catalyst Center, we use a person-centered approach to assessment that is geared towards helping you learn about yourself, and making a plan for how to get where you want to be.

Assessment can be a wonderful way to start therapy, it’s like getting a kick start on the process of change.
