Mental Health Screenings

Are you not sure of the symptoms you are noticing?  You may choose to complete a screening tool prior to your first appt.  The screening tools do not replace a clinical diagnosis, but may assist you in starting a dialog with your counselor about the symptoms you have noticed. Screeners are also available to include an educational component regarding alcohol and marijuana usage.  All of our screeners are confidential.
