After your initial interview with a Burrell clinical staff member, he or she may recommend additional testing in order to reach a diagnostic conclusion or specific recommendations for treatment. Burrell is able to provide diagnostic evaluations for a variety of psychological, cognitive, attention, learning, educational, and personality concerns.

The evaluation includes an interview with a psychologist or neuropsychologist and a comprehensive battery of standardized paper and pencil tests of attention, concentration, memory, language, reasoning, and learning strengths and weaknesses. The tests may also include measures of intellectual functioning and behavior as well as instruments to assess mood, behavior and stress levels. These tests result in a thorough cognitive and behavioral profile which provides the referring staff member with objective information about your functioning in terms of specific issues that may benefit from intervention. Coupled with the information gathered during your initial interview, any previous testing, and/or related records from other professionals, the testing process generally results in a final diagnosis, definitive conclusions and a comprehensive written report that allows you and the referring staff member to understand what is going on and how we can best serve you. The therapists at Burrell Behavioral Health can help. You’ll work with an experienced counselor with the knowledge and expertise to help you improve your life. Whether you are experiencing an issue such as depression or anxiety, a problem with work or a relationship, or other concerns, you’ll find a receptive and seasoned therapist to help you create genuine change.
