Psychological Assessment

Psychological Assessment is helpful in clarifying the psychiatric diagnosis and guiding treatment, especially in cases in which medications are involved.

As part of a psychological assessment, Dr. Shikhman conducts a diagnostic interview and administers a personality inventory and self-report questionnaires, which allows Dr. Shikhman to establish a comprehensive picture of the symptoms and attain an accurate diagnosis.

Once the diagnosis is made, Dr. Shikhman provides clients with a full assessment report. She, then, recommends a suitable course of treatment and whenever necessary, she offers referrals to other professionals who may be of help.

This assessment is offered in English and Russian.
