How Does Psychological Testing Work?

Psychological testing measures an individual’s unique traits, cognitive functioning level, thought processes, and other aptitudes, often to inform diagnoses and treatment for a specific issue. The psychologists and therapists at Thriveworks Manassas might utilize a few different types of testing, including:

  • Formal psychological evaluation
  • Behavioral observation
  • Interviews with the individual
  • Interviews with the individual’s family members and/or teachers
  • Surveys and self-reports

“There are literally hundreds of assessments,” says Sean Hayes PsyD of Thriveworks Counseling in Sterling, VA. “Some assessments have people answer open-ended questions, such as what they might see on an inkblot. This is known as the Rorschach. Others are more structured and are designed to identify specific problems, like suicidal ideation or problems in daily functioning. Some are much more broad and are designed to get a big picture of a personality or types of intelligence.”

Your Thriveworks Manassas psychologist will work to understand your needs before conducting psychological testing. They will then determine the best form of testing, be it formal psychological evaluation, behavioral observation, a survey, or all of the above. In any case, your psychologist’s goal is to help you better understand yourself, including your goals and areas you might need a little help in.

Lisa

★★★★★
I started with Thriveworks and Lisa 3-4 months ago and I was nervous about telling a "stranger" my deepest issues and things I'm not always comfortable admitting myself. I have to say she has been amazing through an really tough relationship break and other things I was or am going through in life. She makes you feel comfortable and truly listens, providing support and options for situations which allow me to be able to look at situations differently. She has made an incredible improvement on my life and I always look forward to meeting with her. It has become a breath of fresh air for me. She is amazing and I consider her a friend. You can't go wrong.

Lisa Cornelius- My wonderful experience with her.

★★★★★
I worked with Lisa Cornelius for more than 6 months and she really is amazing. She helped me through my struggles by giving me strategies that could help me involve my well being. She is honest and she will connect with your situation by putting herself in your shoes. I've never connected with a therapist like I have with her. She really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!

Counseling appreciation

★★★★★
A note of thanks to my counselor Lisa Cornelius. I have seen her for 2 years now and through our sessions an finding that I am a good person who has needs and a future that I never knew at 72 I coukd look forward to. Our lives go full circle sometimes and after bad things happen we start to think we have no right to try to be anyone but who others think we should be....not true! Hopefully Lisa and I can continue this journey and I can learn to relax in the real me and be content and happy with myself...thank you Lisa ....

Ms. Lisa

★★★★★
Ms. Lisa is a very amazing counselor. She helps you understand and can relate to you, which makes you feel better. Her way of counseling is different from past counselor. It was more dull with my past counselor, but with Ms. Lisa it is different. It is better to me. I definitely recommend Ms. Lisa because everytime I leave I feel lighter and a little bit better. 😊

It was an excellent experience.

★★★★★
It was an excellent experience. I have been suffering from high anxiety and was skeptical about talking with someone who didn’t know me. After my first session I could finally see light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait for my next appointments so that I can learn how to take my life back.
