Mental Health Assessments / Bio-Psycho-Social
We have state licensed therapists available to provide a mental health assessment and any ongoing therapy that may be required. These assessments are completed by a Master’s level clinician and are often used for personal, medical, or legal reasons. Court ordered evaluations are completed based on the specific request in the court document. Sometimes they can be completed by any “licensed mental health professional” and sometimes they must be completed by a “licensed psychologist or psychiatrist.” In either case, the staff at Total Health Guidance are available to help, but the wording will determine who the therapist will be as well as the cost.
We believe that we are the most affordable office anywhere in the Orlando area for testing, assessments, and evaluations. The price includes the initial assessment time, any required follow up, and the written report with diagnosis if applicable. The actual client session time it takes to complete each assessment varies considerably and ranges from 1-5 hours. If you would like to find out the cost of any particular assessment, please call our office at 321-332-6984.
All of our educational assessments and evaluations are completed in a timely fashion by a Licensed School Psychologist. We can usually schedule assessment appointments within 5 days from your call. All of our evaluations are completed in a comfortable and completely confidential environment. Any therapy or follow-up that may be required can also be completed here at Total Health Guidance. We offer a full line of counseling services, nutritional support, acupuncture, medical massage, and support groups. We can also provide a holistic and integrated approach to treatment for those wishing to avoid prescription medication.
