Getting an Evaluation
The Evaluation Process: How It Works
At The Hallowell Center Boston MetroWest, we offer a variety of diagnostic and assessment tools to help us evaluate and understand your specific needs. Based on what we learn, we then suggest a customized treatment plan to meet those needs. We draw from a cross-section of treatment modalities that may be used individually, or in conjunction with one another. In keeping with Dr. Hallowell’s strengths-based approach to diagnosis and treatment, that plan is designed to leverage each individual’s unique gifts to help overcome their cognitive and emotional problems.
What does an evaluation involve?
The Hallowell Center Boston MetroWest offers several different types of evaluations, depending on your individual needs.
All evaluations begin with an in-person, formal initial consultation or intake session conducted by one of our Hallowell clinicians. During the intake session, we work to understand your unique challenges and concerns and create a detailed history, including:
- educational, work and relationship experiences,
- a history of individual health, family history, past treatment and developmental history.
After listening to and evaluating all of this background information, the clinician may, in some instances, be able to provide a preliminary assessment right away and recommend a customized treatment plan. In other instances, however, the clinician may determine that additional testing is required in order to complete the evaluation process.
Getting started is easy.
First, call 978-287-0810 (or fill out the form below) to schedule your 15 minute telephone inquiry with our New Patient Specialist.
During the phone interview, the New Patient Specialist will ask you some questions to determine your specific needs and concerns.
Then, if appropriate, he’ll schedule an appointment for you to come in to The Hallowell Center to meet with one of our clinicians for a formal intake session. This is the first step in the evaluation process.
During your appointment, the Hallowell Center clinician will discuss your unique challenges and concerns and determine the most appropriate next steps for you.
