In addition to providing psychotherapy and relationship counseling, I really enjoy doing
assessments and evaluations of adult clients (sorry, no children or adolescents). This includes
both psychological testing and “light” neuropsychological testing. You or your clients may find
this a useful addition to your therapy work.

For example, you might have a really tough case where you just don’t feel sure of what’s going
on with a person. Here, I might recommend an MCMI (Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory) to
check for personality disorders and possibly a SIMS (Structured Inventory of Malingered
Symptomatology).

Or, you may have a client who you suspect has problems with early dementia. You may have
provided an MMSE (Mini Mental Status Exam) and they failed. But, you’d like to have more
information to provide to the client’s family or physician. In this case, I might recommend a
Geriatric Depression Scale to rule out depression and possibly some neuropsychological
screening (BVMG and Trails) to rule out neurological issues.

In either case above, I might also recommend some level of trauma assessment, as I have
found that many people with unusual mental disorder or medical issues have a trauma history.
"The body bears the burden" and "the body remembers," as they say.

You get the idea.
