California Women’s Therapy is now offering Adult ADHD Evaluations
Comprehensive adult ADHD evaluations are conducted virtually by two of our Psychological Associates, Dr. Marina Marcus and Ruby Corley
“I’m Dr. Marina Marcus, and I conduct ADHD evaluations for adults through California Women’s Therapy. There are a lot of resources out there for learning about ADHD, but many of these can be confusing and aren’t backed up by research. I’d like to be a partner in helping you understand whether you do have ADHD and, if so, how you can better cope, by using strategies and tools that have a solid evidence-base behind them.”
” Living with undiagnosed ADHD can be overwhelming and unnecessarily challenging. My aim is to help guide you in understanding this diagnosis and how to integrate the tools and knowledge around it so that you may live your life effectively and fully.”
If you choose to conduct your ADHD evaluation through CWT, you’ll be working with a well-trained Psychological Associate, who can get to know you, your history and experiences, and give you recommendations that are tailored to your specific needs.
Our Assessment Approach
Our adult ADHD evaluations include the following:
- a comprehensive diagnostic interview
- administration of the DIVA-5 (a structured Diagnostic Interview for Adult ADHD that is based on the criteria for ADHD in DSM-5)
- completion of self-report and other-report forms of symptoms of ADHD both in childhood and in adulthood
- other assessment measures as deemed appropriate given your specific symptoms and life circumstances
The Assessment Process
Assessment sessions are held virtually and scheduled based on mutual availability between you and Dr. Marina or Ruby. Typically, 3 to 5 sessions are needed and are generally scheduled in 1 – 2 hour blocks. However, these do not need to take place in the same week and can be scheduled according to your availability.
An adult ADHD evaluation takes between 8 and 12 hours in all to complete. This includes test scoring, interpretation, and report writing – which is done without the client present. This also includes a feedback session, during which your results will be shared with you and recommendations will be provided. You will also receive a copy of the final report.
Assessment services are billed at a rate of $150 per hour.
For those with out-of-network benefits (PPO insurance plans), we can submit out-of-network claims on your behalf through our partnership with Reimbursify.
Please reach out if you have questions or would like to schedule a free initial consultation.
