Psychiatric Evaluations

Psychiatric evaluations

Practitioners at Paramount Health Directions value a holistic perspective on the assessment and treatment of psychiatric and psychological concerns. Our team boasts a cumulative experience base of well over a century, including backgrounds in medicine, nursing, psychology, counseling and social work.

Our comprehensive psychiatric evaluation generally takes place over 2-3 sessions and includes not only addressing current complaints, but also reviewing relevant medical, psychiatric and family history and gathering supporting information when appropriate (parents, teachers, other providers). Ideally, we work collaboratively to develop a treatment plan that is highly individualized, pertinent to current concerns and goals and adaptable for future as progress is made and needs shift. Specific treatment approaches or interventions may be recommended as part of the evaluation, including prescribing medication when appropriate.
