At Counseling Psychologists of Kansas City, we understand that the challenges of life can often lead to difficulties that require skilled intervention. That’s why we offer psychological evaluation services to a range of clients, including lawyers, families, individuals, and mental health practitioners.
Whatever the reason a psychological evaluation is required for a court case, having a trusted and experienced professional is essential. Dr. Schwartz has performed hundreds of evaluations throughout the past 20 years of her career and has come to understand the nuances of the criminal justice system and how the psychological elements are unique to each case.
Dr. Schwartz provides expert evaluations for families, schools, attorneys, and courts, primarily located in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
Dr. Schwartz has completed well over 1,000 evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults throughout the Kansas City metro, where she has provided valuable insight for attorneys and judges, many of which were about parental responsibilities, parental rights, parenting time, and other child custody cases.
All evaluations completed by Dr. Schwartz are acutely thorough so as to help attorneys build powerful and compelling cases for their clients. Her in-depth psychological analyses of parent-child relationships are compiled into extremely detailed reports so attorneys may have a clear understanding of the role psychological elements play in their cases. Furthermore, Dr. Schwartz’s sex therapy certification overlaps with her assessment of family dynamics, assisting her with diagnosing and understanding the parenting implications of problematic sexual behavior in custody cases.
While many psychologists working on custody cases are quick to jump to extremes, Dr. Schwartz is known for closely analyzing each factor and providing reasonable and practical recommendations for her evidence-backed findings. At the end of the day, Dr. Schwartz performs these evaluations so that she may help families and legal representatives determine the best possible solution for the child.
Psycho-educational evaluations are extremely valuable tools when it comes to helping individuals who find themselves or their children struggling in academic settings, or with social, emotional, or behavioral issues. Dr. Schwartz tailors each evaluation to fit the needs of the client so that together they can determine where support is needed and the best way to provide that support.
Through her evaluations, Dr. Schwartz pulls together information from several different sources so that she may be able to make an accurate diagnosis. From there, she provides practical recommendations and reasonable treatment options. Dr. Schwartz provides psycho-evaluations for children ages 6 and up, adolescents, and adults.
