Dr. Ashley Baker PSYD


Pavilion Psychological Services specializes in psychological testing. Often, mental health diagnoses overlap, and it’s difficult to determine what’s clinically abnormal versus just a phrase. Assessments offer specific insight into not just weaknesses but also strengths, learning styles, and assistance with treatment planning.

The assessment process consists of:

  • a one-hour intake session to discuss your concerns and reasons for testing
  • comprehensive in person testing (often broken up into parts since it requires 2-7 hours, depending on the breadth of concern)
  • and a one-hour feedback session to discuss in detail the next steps and how to assist.

While feedback sessions are typically for parents or older teenagers, Dr. Baker believes that every child should understand themselves better after testing. That’s why she writes a unique and specialized letter to every child, detailing results (strengths and areas to target) and customized plans. These letters are reviewed with parents, and then provided to the children with their consent. This also creates a child-centric bridge to discuss their mental health without complex reports.
