Psychological Testing

Psychological testing is the basis for mental health treatment. These tools are often used to measure and observe a person’s behaviors, emotions, and thoughts. It’s an important step in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illnesses.

One important tool we use is the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI-IV). The Millon is a psychological assessment tool that consists of 196 true/false questions, designed to evaluate personality traits, types, or disorders and diagnoses (i.e. depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar, etc). A treatment guide will provide you with steps to address any areas of need. 

Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-IV interpretive report showing validity, personality, psychopathology, and facet scales with percentile and base rate scores.

Psychological testing is not intended to be definitive. It is a tool that we use in conjunction with information from your medical and mental health history to get a comprehensive picture of your mental health.

What to expect during your Psychological Testing Appointment

While every patient’s care is personalized, here’s what to expect during your psychological appointment.  

Before Your Appointment

Login to the patient portal and complete the required form: Psychological Testing Consent Form

The night before your appointment, try to get a good night’s sleep – coming well rested will make sure we have an accurate picture of your mental health.

When you come to your appointment, make sure to bring your glasses or hearing aid if you use these. 

Many times, you will be completing forms, questionnaires, and tasks on a computer so it is important that you can see and hear. 

During Your Appointment

The evaluation may take about 60 minutes, depending on your specific mental health condition and concerns.

Come well rested and with glasses or hearing aids, if required.  The trained testing technician will guide you though the testing process, making sure that you are comfortable and understand each task.

During testing, you are allowed to have breaks in order to make sure you are not overly fatigued. 

Once testing is complete, the technician will answer any questions which you may have and then make sure to schedule your follow-up appointment.  

At your Follow-Up Appointment

During your followup appointment, your  provider will review your results, discuss recommendations, and determine which treatment options are best for you. You will be provided with a copy of results.

Your insurance may cover psychological testing based upon completion of a psychiatric evaluation. Therefore, a psychiatric evaluation but must be completed before completing any psychological testing. The option of only completing psychological testing is available via self pay options but must include a follow up appointment to review results. Total self pay price is $400 – includes testing and followup appointment.
