Join us for a two-part series on Therapeutic Assessment with Dr. Raja David, who trained extensively with the creator of the Therapeutic Assessment model, Dr. Stephen Finn. Over the next two episodes, we’ll spend time on the background and theory of TA, what measures are typically included, how to bill for TA appointments, what a TA “report” looks like, and – in part 2 – an in-depth case study utilizing the TA approach. Enjoy!

About Dr. Jeremy Sharp
I’m a licensed psychologist and Clinical Director at the Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling, a private practice that I founded in 2009 and grew to include nine licensed clinicians, three clinicians in training, and a full administrative staff. I earned my undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina before getting my Master’s and PhD in Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University. These days, I specialize in psychological and neuropsychological evaluation with kids and adolescents.
As the host of the Testing Psychologist Podcast, I provide private practice consulting for psychologists and other mental health professionals who want to start or grow psychological testing services in their practices. I live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my wife (also a therapist) and two young kids.
