Psychological Testing

Discovery now offers psychological testing!

Psychological testing is often used to help guide treatment and track progress by identifying cognitive strengths and weaknesses. Discovery Psychotherapy Center now offers brief neuropsychological assessments and IQ testing. These tests measure various cognitive domains such as attention, memory, and problem solving, and are ideal for children struggling in school, adults struggling at work, or individuals with a history of traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, or dementia. Patients are provided with a full report of the results and recommendations in addition to a full feedback session with the evaluator. The following assessments are currently being offered:

Children:

  • Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children- Fourth Edition (WISC-IV).

Adults:

  • Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale- Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV). The WAIS-IV is an IQ assessment designed to measure the general intellectual functioning of adults.
  • Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS). The RBANS is a neuropsychological test designed for repeated use with adults who have organic or acquired cognitive deficits, which may or may not be due to mental illness, stroke, TBI, or dementia.
  • Dementia Rating Scale-2 (DRS-2). The DRS-2 is a brief cognitive assessment that measures dementia, or memory loss, which may or may not be due to mental illness, stroke, or Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST). The WCST is a measure of executive functioning, or complex problem solving and reasoning.

Brielle Marino, M.A., M.S., LAC, NBCC

I am a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM). I hold a Master of Arts degree from New York University in mental health counseling and a Master of Science degree in clinical psychology from PCOM. My training and theoretical orientation centers around cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based approach to treating a variety of mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression, by way of examining the relationships between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I have recently completed a year-long training rotation at Weill-Cornell New York Presbyterian, and am currently training at Columbia University Medical Center in addition to my work at Discovery.

The current osteopathic setting in which I am pursuing my degree enables me to explore my interests in somatic symptoms, the bidirectional relationship between physical health and mental health, and the role of clinical psychology in primary care. As a therapist, it is my intention to work collaboratively with you to utilize treatment techniques that are based on scientific research and evidence in the pursuit of enhancing your quality of life. In addition to providing therapy, I also offer neuropsychological and psychological testing services.

Neha Mistry, M.A.

I have been a part of the Discovery family since 2014 as a medical receptionist and am so delighted to begin my journey as a psychological assessment technician! I offer services in psychological and related neuropsychological testing (please see Our Services tab for more information).

Presently I am a doctoral candidate in clinical and school psychology at Kean Psychology. I currently hold a Master of Arts in Educational Psychology and have training experience across different settings. I recently completed a year at a school district in New Jersey and am currently training in neuropsychological testing at the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, particularly in assessing a variety of neurological conditions including stroke, epilepsy, various dementing disorders, movement disorders, brain injuries, encephalopathy, and neuropsychiatric disorders.

Additionally, I have experience in assessing for neurodevelopmental disorders such as Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and specific learning disabilities, personality disorders, as well as in functional behavioral assessments to help identify and reduce problematic behaviors in children. I have been trained in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), an evidence-based third-wave behavioral approach, which targets the processes of language often contributing to emotional and behavioral difficulties and related psychopathology.

Psychological testing is a wonderful tool that can contribute to treatment planning and provides an in-depth understanding about cognitive functioning, personality, etc. I look forward to working with you and your provider to help maximize your strengths and gain clarity about your present worries.
