The goal at Braden Counseling Center has always been one thing: to help you back to a full life once again, with new skills to help maintain balance.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain when you contact us for psychiatric services in and around Geneva, IL.

Psychological Testing and Assessment

If you are ordered to undergo a psych evaluation in Geneva, know that we also do court-ordered psychological evaluations, among other evaluations and assessments, to determine how to help you. Just as your primary physician will examine your body for physical ailments, our staff will do the same for your mind.

Peace of Mind

If you or a loved one suffer from daily anxiety, there is help out there for you. Everyone experiences stress, but some people are better than others at handling it. At Braden Counseling Center in Geneva, we use a proven, modern approach to each psychological assessment to help you find serenity again. We get to the very heart of the matter, devise a plan for you, and help you to begin healing.

Child Psychological Evaluation

Living through stressful times is difficult enough for adults. For children, it can be much more challenging, as they are not equipped with past experiences to make sense of their situation. As a result, children often act out.

When a child falls behind in school, it is many people’s first inclination to suggest that they are lazy with schoolwork and should work harder. The problem could go far beyond laziness, however. Issues such as parental divorce, a death of a family member, vision or hearing problems, or bullying might be the cause of a child’s out-of-character or antisocial behavior. Our psychological testing and assessment providers in Geneva will get them the help they need now.

Components of a Psychological Evaluation

A psychological evaluation at our Geneva location has numerous components. These include:

The Therapist – This person must understand the client fully. He or she must learn what has led their client into the trouble they are dealing with, and what methods will best to help.
The Client – Every patient must be open and truthful about their life. He or she should explore what has led them to this moment and be willing to accept positive changes.
The Psychiatric Provider – This person is responsible for understanding which psychiatric medication might be needed to treat their client.
Trust – This is a two-way street. Both sides will need to spend time and effort focused on healing. For both, patience and perseverance reap great rewards.

I see Amanda Cimaglia and she is by far the most compassionate, respecting and caring counselor I've had. With all the craziness I'm going through she really keeps me grounded. Always listens to me and never ever rushes me but gives me time for her positive feedback.I've always had trouble trusting someone with my issues because I'd find out that the counselor did not go according to her perfession but listen to others to get something out of me. I never had once had that once with Amanda Cimaglia and she let's me work through things I need to at my own pace. And for that I thank her 😊 . She has my mental health at her best interest. Wish there was more counselors out there like her so others can have a safe spot to speak without judgment like I do.From the very bottom of my heart, thank you Amanada Cimaglia and Braden Counseling for having her on board. I'm sure all your staff and team members are just as compassionate ❤️

    Child Psychological Evaluation

    As adults, we have past experiences to help guide us through; with a child it is very different. They might be cast into situations beyond their control and are having difficulties making sense of all that is going on around them. Children are supposed to be happy and free but are often fearful. Some of these fears are rational, while others might be, or at least seem, irrational. The professional psychiatric services we provide at our Elgin location will help to uncover what is going on in the life and mind of a child.

    If a child is having difficulties in school, the automatic response most people have is often that he/she is just not trying hard enough. However, there might be underlying factors, such as parental divorce, vision problems, or bullying that can undermine a child’s life.

    Our counselors at Braden Counseling Center will work to uncover what is going on in a child’s mind and help them to work through it. A psychiatric evaluation is just the beginning to uncovering all that is going on in a child’s life. If you feel your child would benefit from a psychiatric evaluation, contact us today. A psychological evaluation is not the end of a journey for children in Elgin, but it can be the beginning of a road to recovery.

    The Factors of a Psychiatric Evaluation

    When you come to our Elgin office, you will see a psychiatric evaluation is broken down into these components:

    • The Therapist
    • The Client
    • The Psychiatric Provider
    • Trust

    You must have these four components to make progress. The therapist must know their client completely in order to lead them to a successful outcome. The client must be open and truthful about their life. The more honest and open the communication, the more opportunity there is for lasting change.

    The psychiatric provider must know which medication, if any, to prescribe to help meet the challenges for their client. Finally, and most crucially, there must be mutual trust. The relationship between the therapist and the client is unique. It is a partnership that will take time to come to a successful conclusion.

    Psychiatric Services

    Begin Your Path to Recovery Today

    Your psychological assessment can start today. No matter the reason you or a loved one might feel the need for psychiatric services, please know there is no shame in seeking help. Avoid common misconceptions about psychiatry and what it is for. The best way to learn more about psychiatric services is to get in touch. We understand that life is very different from what you see in popular media. We can stop any assumptions that would lead you in the wrong directions.

    There are skills you can learn to manage your life more effectively. At Braden Counseling Center, our experienced staff will offer these to you. Our comprehensive psychiatric services are here to provide you with better mental health. It all begins with a free consultation.

    Our outpatient behavioral health programs and services are geared for getting results. We have helped hundreds of clients see their way to a new tomorrow, and we are here to do that for you as well. If you are looking for practical, thoughtful help for you or a loved one, we urge you to get in touch with one of the five locations of Braden Counseling Center.

    While our location in Elgin might be the closest to you, we also have offices in Elgin, Rochelle, Oregon, and Sycamore. Our staff has the skills and experience to properly evaluate difficult situations and transform the lives of our patients. Contact us today for more information about our psychiatric services.

    I was an emotional wreck when I first went. I was nervous and probably not making a lot of sense. The staff seemed to understand and immediately put me at ease. By the time I left, life just didn’t seem so bad. Thank you Braden Center for being there.

      I called so many other counseling office first, either no one answer the call or no confirmed days for class, with Braden, right away, walk me through the process, fees and needed information, able to set up appointment next day to do the testing and schedule me the class right way. very helpful, not like some other place asked me to fill out so many medical forms although just 10 hours DUI Risk Education.I am really happy with them, they are also not charge as much as other company.

      I see Amanda Cimaglia and she is by far the most compassionate, respecting and caring counselor I've had. With all the craziness I'm going through she really keeps me grounded. Always listens to me and never ever rushes me but gives me time for her positive feedback.I've always had trouble trusting someone with my issues because I'd find out that the counselor did not go according to her perfession but listen to others to get something out of me. I never had once had that once with Amanda Cimaglia and she let's me work through things I need to at my own pace. And for that I thank her 😊 . She has my mental health at her best interest. Wish there was more counselors out there like her so others can have a safe spot to speak without judgment like I do.From the very bottom of my heart, thank you Amanada Cimaglia and Braden Counseling for having her on board. I'm sure all your staff and team members are just as compassionate ❤️

      Child Psychological Evaluation

      As adults, we have past experiences to help guide us through; with a child it is very different. They might be cast into situations beyond their control and are having difficulties making sense of all that is going on around them. Children are supposed to be happy and free but are often fearful. Some of these fears are rational, while others might be, or at least seem, irrational. The professional psychiatric services we provide at our Bartlett location will help to uncover what is going on in the life and mind of a child.

      If a child is having difficulties in school, the automatic response most people have is often that he/she is just not trying hard enough. However, there might be underlying factors, such as parental divorce, vision problems, or bullying that can undermine a child’s life.

      Our counselors at Braden Counseling Center will work to uncover what is going on in a child’s mind and help them to work through it. A psychiatric evaluation is just the beginning to uncovering all that is going on in a child’s life. If you feel your child would benefit from a psychiatric evaluation, contact us today. A psychological evaluation is not the end of a journey for children in Bartlett, but it can be the beginning of a road to recovery.

      [/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner]

      The Factors of a Psychiatric Evaluation

      When you come to our Bartlett office, you will see a psychiatric evaluation is broken down into these components:

      • The Therapist
      • The Client
      • The Psychiatric Provider
      • Trust

      You must have these four components to make progress. The therapist must know their client completely in order to lead them to a successful outcome. The client must be open and truthful about their life. The more honest and open the communication, the more opportunity there is for lasting change.

      The psychiatric provider must know which medication, if any, to prescribe to help meet the challenges for their client. Finally, and most crucially, there must be mutual trust. The relationship between the therapist and the client is unique. It is a partnership that will take time to come to a successful conclusion.

      Psychiatric Services

      Begin Your Path to Recovery Today

      Your psychological assessment can start today. No matter the reason you or a loved one might feel the need for psychiatric services, please know there is no shame in seeking help. Avoid common misconceptions about psychiatry and what it is for. The best way to learn more about psychiatric services is to get in touch. We understand that life is very different from what you see in popular media. We can stop any assumptions that would lead you in the wrong directions.

      There are skills you can learn to manage your life more effectively. At Braden Counseling Center, our experienced staff will offer these to you. Our comprehensive psychiatric services are here to provide you with better mental health. It all begins with a free consultation.

      Our outpatient behavioral health programs and services are geared for getting results. We have helped hundreds of clients see their way to a new tomorrow, and we are here to do that for you as well. If you are looking for practical, thoughtful help for you or a loved one, we urge you to get in touch with one of the five locations of Braden Counseling Center.

      While our location in Bartlett might be the closest to you, we also have offices in Elgin, Rochelle, Oregon, and Sycamore. Our staff has the skills and experience to properly evaluate difficult situations and transform the lives of our patients. Contact us today for more information about our psychiatric services.

      Braden Counseling Center in Sycamore IL now offers comprehensive psychiatric services, available to you, a member of your family, or as a family unit. There are positive ways to handle even the worst of negative situations.

      We will show you how and can help you reach a state of mind that is better for you. With the help of a caring psychiatric provider, we will bring you step-by-step towards feeling like yourself again.

      At Braden Counseling Center in Sycamore, we offer licensed, professional staff and a variety of evaluations which all begin with a psychological assessment.

You must know upfront that there is no shame attached to your reasons for an assessment, and it is nothing to fear. Just as your primary physician would examine your body for physical ailments, a psychiatric provider examines your mind.

      Living with Peace of Mind

      Everyone experiences stress. Dealing with negative situations on a daily basis can be detrimental to your well-being. Some people handle stress better than others. If you are in a place where your peace of mind is challenged, the Braden Counseling Center is here for you. We know the latest testing methods that will get to the heart of what is causing you stress. From there, we formulate a plan to begin the healing you are seeking together.

        Child Psychological Evaluation

        As adults, we have past experiences to help guide us through; with a child it is very different. They might be cast into situations beyond their control and are having difficulties making sense of all that is going on around them. Children are supposed to be happy and free but are often fearful. Some of these fears are rational, while others might be, or at least seem, irrational. The professional psychiatric services we provide at our Sycamore location will help to uncover what is going on in the life and mind of a child.

        If a child is having difficulties in school, the automatic response most people have is often that he/she is just not trying hard enough. However, there might be underlying factors, such as parental divorce, vision problems, or bullying that can undermine a child’s life.

        Our counselors at Braden Counseling Center will work to uncover what is going on in a child’s mind and help them to work through it. A psychiatric evaluation is just the beginning to uncovering all that is going on in a child’s life. If you feel your child would benefit from a psychiatric evaluation, contact us today. A psychological evaluation is not the end of a journey for children in Sycamore, but it can be the beginning of a road to recovery.

        The Factors of a Psychiatric Evaluation

        When you come to our Sycamore office, you will see a psychiatric evaluation is broken down into these components:

        • The Therapist
        • The Client
        • The Psychiatric Provider
        • Trust

        You must have these four components to make progress. The therapist must know their client completely in order to lead them to a successful outcome. The client must be open and truthful about their life. The more honest and open the communication, the more opportunity there is for lasting change.

        The psychiatric provider must know which medication, if any, to prescribe to help meet the challenges for their client. Finally, and most crucially, there must be mutual trust. The relationship between the therapist and the client is unique. It is a partnership that will take time to come to a successful conclusion.

        Begin Your Path to Recovery Today

        Your psychological assessment can start today. No matter the reason you or a loved one might feel the need for psychiatric services, please know there is no shame in seeking help. Avoid common misconceptions about psychiatry and what it is for. The best way to learn more about psychiatric services is to get in touch. We understand that life is very different from what you see in popular media. We can stop any assumptions that would lead you in the wrong directions.

        There are skills you can learn to manage your life more effectively. At Braden Counseling Center, our experienced staff will offer these to you. Our comprehensive psychiatric services are here to provide you with better mental health. It all begins with a free consultation.

        Our outpatient behavioral health programs and services are geared for getting results. We have helped hundreds of clients see their way to a new tomorrow, and we are here to do that for you as well. If you are looking for practical, thoughtful help for you or a loved one, we urge you to get in touch with one of the five locations of Braden Counseling Center.

          I called so many other counseling office first, either no one answer the call or no confirmed days for class, with Braden, right away, walk me through the process, fees and needed information, able to set up appointment next day to do the testing and schedule me the class right way. very helpful, not like some other place asked me to fill out so many medical forms although just 10 hours DUI Risk Education.I am really happy with them, they are also not charge as much as other company.

          I see Amanda Cimaglia and she is by far the most compassionate, respecting and caring counselor I've had. With all the craziness I'm going through she really keeps me grounded. Always listens to me and never ever rushes me but gives me time for her positive feedback.I've always had trouble trusting someone with my issues because I'd find out that the counselor did not go according to her perfession but listen to others to get something out of me. I never had once had that once with Amanda Cimaglia and she let's me work through things I need to at my own pace. And for that I thank her 😊 . She has my mental health at her best interest. Wish there was more counselors out there like her so others can have a safe spot to speak without judgment like I do.From the very bottom of my heart, thank you Amanada Cimaglia and Braden Counseling for having her on board. I'm sure all your staff and team members are just as compassionate ❤️

          Psychiatric Services and Evaluations

          At Braden Counseling Center, we understand that people are complex and complicated. While we are all free-thinking human beings, our thoughts, wants, and desires are typically linked to our personal experiences throughout our lives.

          The unfortunate reality is, people face very real stress every day. While each of us experience different kinds and levels of stress, it still affects all of us in varying ways, and sometimes it can be overwhelming. We are here to guide, counsel, and treat all of our clients with any mental and psychological troubles that they face in their day-to-day lives. By enlisting the help of a caring psychiatric provider, you bring yourself one step closer to feeling like you again.

          The professionals at Braden Counseling Center are licensed and qualified to perform unbiased psychological assessments of our clients in order to get them on the fast track to recovery. A treatment plan cannot be made properly without first identifying the aspects of your life that trigger stress.

          Psychological Testing and Assessment

          There are many reasons why an individual would undergo a psych evaluation, and it is nothing to be afraid or ashamed of. Just as a General Practitioner would examine your body for any physical ailments, a psychiatric provider needs to do the same for your mind in order for you to get better. Some of the reasons why a person needs to be evaluated are as follows.

          Peace of Mind

          We know that we all experience stress. We also know how stress can negatively affect our everyday lives. What many of us are unclear on is what we can do about it. A psychiatric evaluation is the first step toward trying to find a better way to deal with our stress. At Braden Counseling Center, we utilize the latest in tried and tested methods to get to the heart of what is causing you stress, and then formulate a plan that can begin the process of healing.

          Let’s Chat

            Child Psychological Evaluation

            As difficult as it is for an adult to understand the psychological implications of the stress that they go through, it is exponentially more difficult for a child. We tend to think of children as always having the time of their lives, and that nothing that is going on can affect them in any negative way. Nothing could be further from the truth. Children face stress and doubt in the same way as adults, the only difference is, they probably understand what is happening to them even less than adults do.

            If a child is falling behind in school or is getting in trouble, the default reason that many people think is that they are not trying hard enough or lack discipline. This type of thinking can dangerously affect a child’s development because the reasons why they are not performing the way they should be far more complex. A child psychiatric provider, like those found at Braden Counseling Center, will be able to help them understand what is going on in their minds and put them on a path toward recovery. Do not make the mistake of thinking that there is no way your child needs psychiatric assistance. Get them the help they need, just as you would if they faced a physical illness of some kind.

            The Three Factors of a Psychiatric Evaluation

            A psychological evaluation can be broken down into four main components.

            • The Therapist
            • The Client
            • The Psychiatric Provider
            • Trust

            Without these four areas coming together, it is impossible for any progress to be made. The therapist needs to fully understand the history that has led the client to their current position, as well as the methods that they use in order to effectively treat their patients. The client needs to be open, forthright, and willing to accept that they might need changes in their lives. The psychiatric provider needs to be knowledgeable of the use of psychiatric medication to manage the challenges of the client.  Finally, the two must trust each other that the patient is willing to put the time and effort into healing, the therapist has their best interests in mind, and that progress takes time.  Patience is key in these situations.

            Our Braden Counseling Center Assessors

            Braden Counseling Center is lucky to have Brandie Smalley and Beverley Davis Bye on staff to provide psychiatric services and treatment for adults and children.

            Start Down the Path of Recovery

            Whatever reason why you might feel that you or a loved one need psychiatric services, please understand that there is absolutely no shame in admitting that you need a little help. For many years, mainstream media, movies, and television shows have portrayed the need for psychiatric help as a weakness. It is completely wrong and dangerous to make this assumption. We have no problem admitting that we need help with work, our relationships, or even something as simple as fixing a car, therefore we should not feel intimidated to admit that we might need a little help fixing our minds as well. Contact Braden Counseling Center today if you or someone you know could benefit from a psychological evaluation. We fully live by our motto “New Ways for Better Days,” and are here to help you.

            We offer psychiatric services in Bartlett, Sycamore, Rochelle, Oregon, and Elgin.

            David was incredibly great. Most people would feel very closed out and possibly shy as a client. However, David made me feel very comfortable and was very helpful and detailed in conversation while being very professional. I left very satisfied and looking forward to his services!!! Thank you David keep being great !!!

            I called so many other counseling office first, either no one answer the call or no confirmed days for class, with Braden, right away, walk me through the process, fees and needed information, able to set up appointment next day to do the testing and schedule me the class right way. very helpful, not like some other place asked me to fill out so many medical forms although just 10 hours DUI Risk Education.I am really happy with them, they are also not charge as much as other company.

            I see Amanda Cimaglia and she is by far the most compassionate, respecting and caring counselor I've had. With all the craziness I'm going through she really keeps me grounded. Always listens to me and never ever rushes me but gives me time for her positive feedback.I've always had trouble trusting someone with my issues because I'd find out that the counselor did not go according to her perfession but listen to others to get something out of me. I never had once had that once with Amanda Cimaglia and she let's me work through things I need to at my own pace. And for that I thank her 😊 . She has my mental health at her best interest. Wish there was more counselors out there like her so others can have a safe spot to speak without judgment like I do.From the very bottom of my heart, thank you Amanada Cimaglia and Braden Counseling for having her on board. I'm sure all your staff and team members are just as compassionate ❤️
