I provide evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults. A comprehensive psychiatric evaluation is often the first stage of the treatment process. They are used to diagnose emotional, behavioral, or developmental disorders. Evaluations are also sometimes requested for school or employment purposes.
Evaluation sessions typically require 60-90 minutes to gather personal, family, and medical histories. Evaluations for children and adolescents may require more than one session in order to gather history from both child and parent.
