Counseling is a process where you and a therapist discuss the issues you are facing and design a treatment plan that helps you achieve your desired goals. Your counselor doesn't have all the answers to your problems; rather, he or she works collaboratively with you to solve problems together, often by tapping into your own resources.

A diagnostic assessment is a process where your counselor gives you a variety of testing techniques to help rule out major mental health or chemical dependency issues, to enhance treatment options, or clarify an existing diagnosis. Formal diagnostic testing is often very helpful in shedding new light on an existing diagnosis, and it can often clear up multiple diagnoses from other mental health professionals. Diagnostic assessments are also beneficial when a client is feeling "stuck" in treatment; testing results can enhance treatment options and offer new insight on a current problem. The assessment process is tailored to meet the needs of the client, and could include: IQ testing, chemical dependency assessment tools, ADD/ADHD testing, mood and anxiety screenings, personality testing, projective drawings, and other techniques designed specifically for your concerns.

Diagnostic Assessments for Adults

Often, a child will come to therapy after being referred by his or her school, pediatrician, or parents for various issues such as behavioral and emotional problems, difficulty concentrating and paying attention, hyperactivity, defiance and poor listening. A child's behaviors can often be an indicator of underlying distress, a developmental issue, or other mental health related concern. A full battery of diagnostic testing can be completed to help identify the root cause of your child's behaviors and distress and offer valuable treatment recommendations. Diagnostic assessments always include a face to face interview with you and your child and could also include Acheivement and IQ testing, ADD/ADHD testing, mood and anxiety screenings, personality testing, projective drawings, and other techniques specific to the needs of your child.
