Comprehensive Psychological Assessment


Are you struggling emotionally and feel like there is something wrong with you?

Do you sometimes feel like you’re going crazy?

Do you feel like you can’t handle life’s expectations and don’t understand why?


A comprehensive psychological assessment will help to answer some of these questions. Our assessments provide a thorough exploration of your family history and your social, emotional, personality, and cognitive functioning. With these results, you will gain greater insight into yourself and we will also provide you a diagnosis (if applicable) and a list of recommendations and various treatment options if you choose to continue with additional psychological treatment.

Comprehensive psychological assessments can help you:

  • In providing an opportunity for early intervention if you are experiencing multiple difficulties
  • Identify any possible psychological, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive issues
  • Identify your strengths and any barriers to treatment
  • Develop a collaborative treatment plan if you continue to seek psychological treatment
  • Understand possible academic strengths and weaknesses if you are struggling in school
  • Understand your unique personality strengths and challenges

During the initial interview with one of our highly qualified psychologists, psychotherapists and/or counsellors, the assessment plan is customized based on your specific wants, needs and situation.  We have an extensive array of assessment tools available and will tailor your assessment to your unique situation to gain as much insight as possible into the questions you need answers to. The results of the comprehensive assessment will be compiled into a thorough written report to provide you with an overview of your psychological health. Our practitioners will discuss this report with you in detail and use it to develop next steps for treatment if necessary and desired.
