Psychological tests offer a formal way to measure traits, feelings, beliefs and abilities that can lead to people's problems. Some tests assess the presence of certain conditions, such as depression, anxiety, anger control or susceptibility to stress. Other tests measure general well-being and provide an overall picture of a person's personality. A typical psychological assessment includes an interview with a mental health practitioner and one or more formal psychological tests.

I know what it is like to live in the corporate world where every deadline was two minutes ago, you can never seem to catch a break and there is always 10 projects hiding around the corner. The pressure can be absolutely unbearable and can lead to a dark path. I have the privilege of walking with you through the darkness, and shedding light on the positives in your life. Working through the knots in your stomach that come from fear of failing, lack of time and energy, and loss of enjoyment.
