Psychological testing is designed to help you and your provider reach decisions that are right for the planning and progress of your care. This type of evaluation involves the use of questionnaires or checklists that have been standardized to provide effective insight in the specific areas tested.

Tests used in counseling and diagnosis are not instruments that are always suitable for every person or every purpose. Used appropriately however, these tools can be useful in tailoring treatment for the individual needs of each patient, allowing your therapist to see a complete picture of your strengths, and challenges that you face.
