Meet Our Therapists

Oded Hadar, MA

Testing Administrator

“Thank you for providing me with a tool to better understand myself.”  This is a comment I recently received from a testing client that  captures what I believe is the most powerful feature of psychological testing: the ability to provide a holistic snapshot of a person’s psychological functioning. My aim through the testing process is to provide you with a useful snapshot of your overall  psychological functioning that can help you perform more optimally in  your day-to-day life. 

Through the testing process, I combine quantified data, relevant background information, and clinical input into a unified “story” that can enrich your understanding of who you are and what you can do to grow and develop as an individual. By the end of our work together, you will come away having learned about your level of functioning as it pertains to numerous cognitive, emotional, and neurological skills. Furthermore, you will also be able to identify areas of strength as well as areas in need of support and growth. You will walk away with helpful recommendations on how to work and develop specific skills that are important for meeting your professional, academic, and personal goals. 

In addition, you will receive a thorough rationale for my diagnosis – rationale that is based on the connection between the diagnosis and your performance throughout the testing process. Finally, I will answer any questions you have about the testing report in order to ensure you can utilize the report to its optimal benefit.
