Dr. Roger Russell, a psychologist, and Mrs. Terri Russell, a psychologist associate and professional counselor, primarily conduct psychological evaluations. These evaluations usually include an initial appointment to gather information that will aid in determining what type of psychological tests should be utilized. For child and adolescent clients, the first appointment includes one or more adult family members to help provide important information needed to assist in making decisions about psychological testing.
A psychological evaluation may include some or all of the following: an intelligence test, an achievement test, a computer-based attention test, personality tests, a psychological interview, and rating scales completed by parents, teachers, or significant others. Specialized testing for autism spectrum disorder includes additional testing, as does testing for pre-surgical patients.
Dr. Russell and Mrs. Russell conduct hundreds of evaluations per year primarily to evaluate clients for ADHD, learning problems, mood disorders, depression and bipolar disorders, anxiety disorders (such as PTSD, OCD, and phobias), and autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Russell has evaluated over 4,000 pain and weight loss surgical candidates since the year 2000.
Once the psychological testing has been completed, a feedback session will be held with Dr. Roger Russell or Mrs. Russel to review the results of the evaluation.
