SSPS offers personality and IQ testing. Whether you are currently stuck in therapy and want a hand tailored treatment guide, or are stuck in school and need to find out if there is a learning disability holding you back- we provide testing both in our offices and online. Additionally, many of the tests can be offered from the comfort of your home as long as you have a laptop and a secure Wifi connection.
More and more providers are recognizing the need for a wider range of people to have access to therapy and are reimbursing for therapy sessions conducted via HIPAA compliant video platforms.
SSPS utilizes HIPAA compliant encrypted technology to be able to provide Telehealth sessions to you from the comfort of your home or work. We realize that adding a 1-2 hour stressful commute on to a therapy/testing session each week, can negate the whole point of why you are engaging in therapy/testing in the first place.
Simply click on the “request appointment” button on the home page to schedule your time.
If you are interested in booking a telehealth session you must be a resident of MA or CA. When you inquire, please mention that you are interested in our telehealth therapy.
SSPS has performed 3000+ bariatric and spinal cord stimulator pre-operative psychological evaluations over the last 10 years. Our evaluations are intended to serve as a help, not a hindrance towards your procedure.
Each evaluation starts with a 1 hour clinical interview, aimed to uniquely tailor a behavioral modification plan that will serve as a supplement to your procedure, and help give you the best chances of achieving optimal results throughout your life.
Psychological testing is performed to gather data about your personality that will be used to develop your individualized treatment plan. The testing is less about “detecting crazy,” and more about giving your healthcare team a unique clinical picture about how you will likely function in a medical context.
For instance, testing might tell us that you may feel uncomfortable talking about personal health issues until they get significantly worse. Testing might suggest that you would be best served by enlisting the help of a friend or trusted family member during your pre and post op appointments. Additionally, testing helps provide a statistical likelihood for your chances of success based on compliance and personality factors.
To schedule your appointment today, please inquire and mention that you are a candidate for spinal cord stim or gastric/bariatric surgery. Most insurance plans accepted.
Reduce Your Drinking
Dr. Colleen works with couples and individuals who are no longer happy with the amount of alcohol they are using and would like to learn more about moderation management strategies.
Research has demonstrated that some people are able to use moderation management throughout their lifetime, but some ultimately have to choose abstinence. Dr. Colleen’s short term therapy program can help you build the tools you need to identify the cause of excessive drinking, and build hand-tailored tools to becoming the person you can be proud of in the morning. Click here to set up an intake and mention that you are interested in our moderation management program.
Dr. Colleen’s driving passion is to enable other therapists to create their own unique freedom practice. This means doing more of what you love and figuring out how to outsource the rest, or at least do the rest in the most efficient way possible.
Dr. Colleen loves to consult with other therapists about how to build passive income streams (books, products, courses, etc) that build on each clinician’s unique strengths in order to help a wider audience.
