"Our psychiatric nurse practitioners (PMHNPs) provide both psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medications management. Our PMHNPs are focused on working with you to understand your needs and to tailor recommendations to each individual. We work collaboratively with the individual and, to the extent desired, with other healthcare providers, family, and support community. We believe in the uniqueness of each person we serve. Our focus is on a holistic approach through the assessment and understanding of environmental, physical, behavioral, emotional, spiritual, and developmental influences. We value the importance of evidenced-informed treatment as well as the value of complementary and alternative forms of healing. psychological evaluation is provided by a psychologist and involves standardized testing (ex. IQ, processing speed, Rorschach test, aptitude testing). We do not do parent/custody evaluations.
A psychiatric evaluation is completed by a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or Psychiatrist. These are generally completed though a clinical interview with the individual and in some cases family members. It may also include other measures (ex. Child Behavior Checklist, Beck depression inventory, Vanderbilt ADHD symptoms checklist). If you are seeking clarity or an assessment for a psychiatric diagnosis, this can be obtained through the process of either a psychiatric or psychological evaluation, though in some instances additional evaluations may be needed to make a determination."
