Are you accepting new clients?
Yes! I have openings for testing in the next month, and if you feel like we may be a good fit for therapy, schedule a phone consultation.
When and where do you see clients?
All current client interactions are held online due to social distancing. Dr. Myszak is able to work with families in Illinois, Tennessee, and internationally. Hours are by appointment only.
What does psychological testing involve?
A psychological evaluation involves the collection of information to determine whether there is an underlying reason for an individual’s difficulties (i.e., learning difficulties, autism, ADHD, etc.) Depending on the reason for testing, a variety of testing materials are used—-structured interviews, standardized tests of development and cognitive functioning, daily living skills, and other abilities. Testing typically involves several appointments of testing/data collection and all results are written up in a report with recommendations. Once a report is complete, we have one more appointment to go through the evaluation and answer any questions you may have. See here for more information.
Do you take insurance? What are your fees?
Check out my page on insurance and fees.
I see you work mostly with children. Do you work with other kinds of clients too?
Yes! I like working with lots of different types of clients. The best way to see if we might be a good fit is to schedule a phone consultation; at that time, I can learn a little more about what you are looking for and can let you know if that is something I can help with. If it is beyond my scope, I can help refer you to someone who would be a better fit. Learn more about what to expect when you schedule a phone consultation here.
How long does therapy last?
This depends. My goal is to help you get better as soon as I can, but everyone is different. Sometimes people benefit greatly from just one consultation appointment, and other people might need several months or more. Generally, people start with weekly therapy, and then gradually space appointments out as they start feeling better. Sometimes people might feel better and then come back for a “booster session” or two later.
I’m scheduled for a Veteran’s evaluation—Am I in the right place? What do I need to know?
You are in the right place! If you are scheduled for a C & P exam, at your appointment I will ask you about your background and history and ask you about any mental health difficulties that you are experiencing. The appointment typically lasts 1-1.5 hours and you are welcome to bring along a family member or close friend if you choose to. (If you are a Veteran coming in for an evaluation, please do not schedule a phone consultation beforehand—we will get through everything we need while you are here.)
