Types of Professional Services

Dr. Carr     Dr. Carr and his associates are available for psychological assessment and counseling services for clients 18 and older. The clinic is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. with extended evening hours as needed.  No referral is needed, however we ask to contact your primary care physician if the situation calls for close collaboration with them.

staff     A broad range of assessment and counseling services are available. Psychological assessment services might include IQ testing, dementia screening, or psycho-physiological "stress" evaluation. Understanding the nature of a person's attitudes and interests is critical to successful lifestyle change. A written report can be prepared as needed for your family physician and periodic updates will be provided to him or her with your consent.

     Counseling services are available that take into account traditional personal and family issues as well as the more contemporary applications of health psychology. Issues of parenting, relationship skill building, and communication management can be a focus of review. Understanding how behaviors are established through principles of learning and how these can be modified are essential living skills. Grief counseling and the expression of emotions may serve to release unwanted hostility and improve one's sense of self-esteem and value.

Professional Service Costs

We will be happy to contact your insurance carrier and provide you with information about your coverage and any particular requirements that must be met. Typically, insurance will require you to make a co-payment at the time services are provided. This co-payment may range from $9 to $40 per session depending on your policy.  We are also knowledgeable about community resources that can address many of the issues that people commonly have.
