Assessment Overview

Seeing the Whole Person

Our therapeutic approach is designed to give us a full-perspective view of the whole person by fostering a collaborative assessment between our team and the individual. It also allows us to better position young adults to fulfill their potential and achieve lasting wellness, since they are fully woven into the process.

Rather than a traditional assessment where psychological tests are administered by the professional and the data collected is compared to an aggregated standard of normal, our therapeutic-assessment method incorporates individual and group-therapy settings. Through this model, we can create an interactive environment that empowers young adults by engaging them as active participants in their assessments. With this therapeutic structure in place, individuals have the freedom to make positive, healthy choices and lay the groundwork for identifying and reinforcing their foundational values for living.

By building trust and promoting communication through this collaborative-style assessment, we are better able to help young people understand the cause of their issues. This gives them a sense of control over their lives, as well as the treatment they’ll need to grow and flourish.

Focus and Clarity

From physical and developmental to psychological and behavioral, many young adults come to us with compounded mental-health and medical conditions that have gone undiagnosed. The direct correlation between these issues most often produces a continuous cycle of cause-and-effect that keeps them from achieving lasting well-being.

The collaborative patient-caregiver foundation of our therapeutic assessment approach gives us the ability to make these connections and determine the level of function, impairment and challenges that must be addressed. From there, we can make treatment recommendations that align these systems and maximize the journey to well-being.
