Psychological Assessments & Forensic Evaluations
Applied Behavioral Solutions offers a full range of confidential Psychological Assessment and Evaluation services. We offer psychometric testing to establish the existence of a psychiatric diagnosis, evaluate cognitive/intellectual functioning, personality assessment, specific developmental disorders, and treatment needs. We have extensive experience in fitness to serve, return to work, personal and industrial injury, and most forensic cases that require experience working within the court system. The costs associated with these services will vary depending on the complexity of the case, the time necessary to provide a thorough review of  your needs, and the needs of the court. Your specific cost for these services are set after the completion of an initial needs assessment. After we conduct a thorough telephonic interview to verify that we are the appropriate resource to meet your needs, our fee for the initial face-to-face evaluation appointment is $250.00 USD. At the end of the first appointment, we will quote you a price for the professional services package required for your case. We request a retainer fee to begin the evaluation process. The retainer fee range for Forensic cases begins as low as $3,000.00 USD.

Performance Psychology and Executive Coaching 
Performance Psychology and Executive Coaching are not psychotherapy. Performance psychology is the branch of psychology that studies the factors that allow individuals, communities and societies to flourish. Most recently, performance psychology has included the study of the psychological skills and knowledge necessary to facilitate and develop peak performance guidelines into best practice for sport, business, fitness and the performing arts.

The past few years have seen an explosion in the field of performance psychology. This growth has been primarily in the study of performance excellence in sports as applied to the field of business. Important links have been made between world-class, championship individual and team sports performance and business results. In a similar vein, there has been an increase in the interest of coaching top performers and addressing their needs, not just providing remedial coaching for underachievers. During that time, more research has been devoted to understanding the characteristics of high achievers in sports as well as business. We want to help you improve your performance at home, at work, and in your sport! We recommend our introductory program to experience the effectiveness, benefits and results of Executive Coaching and Performance Psychology.

A seven page report illustrates discrepancies between Ideal and Actual characteristics and components of the workplace.

Part II: The Readiness Factors Inventory provides the client and counselor an eight page report that measures 27 personal, social, and economic factors that may inhibit or facilitate a client's "career change readiness". These self-directed, CCRI assessment protocols are available on CD, and come with interpretive feedback, user's manual and follow-up support. $129.00 CD & Manual.
