Established in 1995
Eden Counseling Services are Provided In-Person, Online, and by Phone.
At Eden Counseling and Consultation, therapy is a collaborative process where you and your therapist form a working relationship to facilitate change and growth during times of loss, transition, pain, and stress. Following an initial evaluation, which may include psychological testing, a treatment plan is created and discussed with you. The length of your treatment will depend on your own personal goals and the types of problems to be addressed.
Psychological tests are scientific instruments that help us understand more about an individual’s personality, skills, problems, and resilience and coping. We apply a variety of widely used and researched instruments to identify emotional, behavioral, or developmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, depression, anxiety, memory problems, learning disabilities, and personality disorders. A comprehensive psychological evaluation identifies strengths and weaknesses, learning style, and current levels of intellectual and personality functioning. Accurate diagnosis is essential for excellent therapy and counseling treatment planning, and recommendations for medication, school accommodations, and life changes.
