MindSights– a psychological assessment clinic serving infants, toddlers, children, adolescents, and young adults– is committed to providing comprehensive, client-tailored psychological evaluation services, integrating the best science with compassionate and collaborative practice. We provide comprehensive psychological assessment services to people affected by learning disabilities, complex psychiatric conditions, neurodevelopmental disorders, attachment disruptions due to foster care placement, and/or developmental/relational trauma. We serve many children and young adults from relatively privileged social and economic backgrounds, as well as many children from populations that have been traditionally marginalized within society (including children in foster care; children who are members of ethnic/cultural minority groups; and children and youth who identify as members of sexual- or gender-minority groups).
Clinicians working at MindSights gain a firm grounding in the science and practice of psychometric assessment, excellent interpersonal skills, and an appreciation of the effects of neurocognitive development on emotional/psychological adjustment in various life stages. A commitment to expanding one’s knowledge of the impact of cultural, traumatic, neurocognitive, and socioeconomic factors on psychological development and familial functioning is essential. MindSights places high value on collaborative practice, inter-professional communication, and professional satisfaction.
Working in our clinic is an ideal opportunity for Oregon Licensed Psychologists and Psychologist Residents who hope to expand not only their expertise with psychological testing, but also their understanding of human neurodevelopment, child psychopathology, cultural/socioeconomic factors impacting a person’s functioning, and dynamics involved in inter-professional collaboration.
