Psychological Evaluations and Testing
We offer a wide range of services to assist attorneys in better understanding the psychological factors that impact their clients. From brief consultations to full psychological evaluations and expert witness testimony, our services can strengthen your case by diagnosing mental illness and explaining to the court how it is relevant to your case. For personal injury and workers’ compensation cases, we determine if any psychological damages are present, and if so whether they were a result of the injury or trauma. For criminal cases, we evaluate competence to stand trial, criminal responsibility, diminished capacity, mental state at the time of offense, capacity to waive Miranda, false confession, and mitigating factors at the time of sentencing.
For personal injury or worker’s compensation cases, or any cases where there is a question as to whether your client has Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety, or depression, contact Dr. Laura Chackes at 314-561-9757 ext. 701. For criminal cases, contact Dr. Brooke Kraushaar at (314) 210-2001.
For Patients Undergoing Medical Procedures
Our psychologists perform psychological evaluations for individuals who are undergoing medical procedures that require evaluations, such as bariatric surgery and pain management procedures. We will provide your physician a report answering their questions regarding your mental state and suitability for surgical or other treatment with a very fast turnaround.
