People seek treatment from a professional for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, it’s due to thoughts or circumstances that leave a negative impact on their lives. Whether that impact is caused by past physical or emotional trauma, ongoing problems within a marriage, troubles with family members, issues with performance at work or school – or even if the source of the negativity is yet unknown – a licensed clinical psychologist can help people make positive changes and live a more balanced life.

A large part of moving toward a more healthy, positive you depends on determining the sources of the negative aspects of your life; diagnosis by a licensed clinical psychologist is the first step in that process.

Using validated, research-backed methods, a licensed clinical psychologist can perform neuropsychological and psychological assessments to accurately pinpoint and diagnose your needs. Then, treatment can proceed – treatments that focus on understanding the diagnosis and how to navigate the inner voices that might fuel negativity and one’s mistakes in thinking. By providing logic and balance to your self-assessment, I can help you take the necessary steps towards positive changes in your life.

In addition to psychotherapy, I provide other crucial aspects of care. Some people require the services of a licensed clinical psychologist for psychoeducational and neuropsychological testing and assessment as well as testing to determine if a child may be placed in a gifted classroom. Neuropsychological and psychological testing may be necessary when applying for psychological accommodations for school or work or as required for entrance to gifted or other scholarly programs. Assessment services are also used in medical-legal settings and when applying for disability through one’s disability insurance or through Social Security. Dr. Calbeck has served as an expert witness in many legal cases. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I offer these and other assessment services.
