SERVICES FOR ADULTS
We offer the following services for adults.
Typically, we first conduct a psychological
evaluation. Based on what is diagnosed, we can
make recommendations for follow-up counseling or
psychotherapy as needed. Just as with children
and adolescents, we provide services on a wide
variety of issues, including the following.

PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATIONS

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
(ADD/ADHD) in adults

Anxiety, including panic attacks, OCD and
PTSD

Depression, including grief counseling

Anger, antisocial personality disorder

Bipolar disorder    

Evaluations for bariatric (weight loss)
surgery

Disability evaluations, both for social security and
private testing

COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY

We can provide counseling for most of the problems
detailed above. In some cases, the treatment is best
provided in another setting or by another agency or
provider, such as the person’s personal physician. In
some cases, no treatment is needed. The evaluation
alone provides the needed information. When
counseling is done, it typically involves sessions in
which the person learns ways to control their negative
emotions (e.g., anxiety, depression, anger) as well to
enhance positive emotions (e.g., joy, inner peace,
fulfillment). It can involve changing one’s thought
perspectives and behavioral patterns.
