A Unique Psychological Approach that Helps You Identify and Solve Your Problems and Build Upon Your Strengths

Collaborative Therapeutic Assessment (CTA) provides the foundation for a targeted psychological assessment, should we choose to do one. The results of the CTA, in turn, form the basis of Assessment-informed Psychotherapy.

Through the CTA approach, I encourage you to actively participate in creating the changes you seek. By fully involving you in all aspects of your care – from clarifying your diagnosis to planning the best treatment – I help you find new ways to solve your problems and move forward.

CTA Is Unique in Several Ways:

  • You are involved at every level of the process and valued for your knowledge and opinions.
  • I help you develop the questions you wish to have answered.
  • I deliver results in simple language that you can understand and use.
  • I look at your strengths, which are likely to hold a part of the solution to your problems.
  • The targeted assessment process gives us additional data to use in psychotherapy.
