PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES FOR ADULTS
Having trouble focusing? Do you try to concentrate at work or school but find yourself completely derailed by the slightest distraction? Are your grades or work performance suffering? Even if you believe you have all the symptoms of ADHD, you should get tested, because there are many other disorders and other explanations for ADHD-like symptoms.
Are you troubled by emotions or behaviors that don't seem normal? We evaluate adults for many problems, such as Bipolar Disorder, Autism (as well as the former Asperger's Disorder), Major Depressive Disorder, PTSD, Anxiety Disorders, and Schizophrenia.
TESTING & ASSESSMENT
We use only evidence-based assessment methods and psychological tests and will provide you not only with a diagnosis, but a plan for treating it so you can get back to feeling like yourself. Our licensed psychologists in Cary will conduct an initial session to get more information about your symptoms and then choose psychological tests based on your needs. Expect two or more appointments for the entire process.
Our mental health counselors in Cary use evidence-based psychotherapy techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy to help you better define your problem or symptoms, formulate an action plan, and make positive changes in your life. This may involve working through your feelings, changing some of your behaviors, and changing the way you think about things. Please look at our clinicians' bios here (click on each therapist to read more about them) to determine which of them you might like to meet. Our adult counseling services may be just what you need to get problems and symptoms under control.
Are you or a loved one experiencing confusion or memory problems? We conduct neuropsychological testing to identify cognitive impairment, memory problems, executive functioning deficits, and other neuropsychological symptoms. Our forensic psychologists also offer guardianship evaluations to determine whether a loved one needs a legally appointed guardian to manage their affairs. Guardianship evaluations are not covered by insurance, but neuropsychological testing for the sole purpose of diagnosis and treatment is usually covered.
Learning Disability, IQ Evaluations, and Achievement Testing for Adults
These are collectively known as psychoeducational evaluations. If you feel that you may have a learning disability, we can help you find out. We also conduct IQ testing for intellectual disability (formerly known as mental retardation) and even Mensa qualification. Achievement testing can help identify your academic achievement level in various subjects. We use only norm-referenced, widely accepted psychological tests. Note that health insurance companies may not cover psychoeducational testing.
