At the office of Dr. Michael Fraser in New York, NY, psychological evaluations are performed to address many different types of questions and issues.
Many young students, as well as college and graduate level students experience difficulties focusing, sustaining attention to academic material, and feel overwhelmed by the demands of school and/or work. When people feel chronically disorganized, easily sidetracked, mentally scattered, slow to get started on tasks, and procrastinate to the point that life becomes filled with anxiety, it may be time for an evaluation. Very often, individuals may be undiagnosed or wrongly diagnosed or "labeled" by physicians and mental health professionals who do not conduct a comprehensive evaluation that includes psychological testing of ability level, achievement, and emotional functioning. At the office of Dr. Michael Fraser in New York, NY, I conduct thorough evaluations that include computerized and neuropsychological tests of attention, memory and executive functioning (i.e., the ability to organize, sequence, plan and act) that provide additional valuable information about problems of attention and impulsivity.
There are many reasons why an individual might experience problems with attention, and a proper evaluation will be able to provide you with specific information about your diagnosis. I assess people who are interested in gaining comprehensive answers about their condition. In some cases, results from my evaluations can serve as the basis for providing an "extended time accommodation" for standardized testing. In all cases, all of my written reports are tailored with recommendations that are specific to your needs. My recommendations are clear, meaningful and are geared towards helping you to understand areas in need of improvement, while helping you to maximize your abilities based on your strengths.
I provide consultations to discuss a wide range of mental health issues and their impact on legal proceedings.

I perform psychological evaluations for a wide variety of other purposes, including but not limited to the following:
