    My services

    Momentum Psychological & Assessment Services provides clinical and forensic mental health services.

    Forensic Psychology

    Areas of psychological assessment and treatment that are directly related to a legal action or proceeding. This includes court-ordered psychological assessments, psychosexual assessments, parental capacity evaluations, court-ordered counseling services, or other psychological treatments required by criminal or family court.

    Assessment Services

    Psychological assessment is a thorough evaluation of an individual through a combination of psychological assessment tools and clinical interview to address overall psychological functioning. Psychological assessments can also be used to answer specific questions related to mental capacities, skill sets, or level of functioning.

    Therapeutic Support

    We provide therapeutic support as individual therapy for youth and adults, as well as family therapy. Areas of specialty include at-risk youth, juvenile delinquency, sexual deviancy issues, criminal behaviors, and behavior modification.

    Issues Related to Sexual Behavior

We also provide sexual deviancy treatment that meets requirements for SSOSA, SSODA, and other sexual deviancy treatment needs. Treatment specifically focuses on sexual offenses, sexually inappropriate behaviors, concerns related to sexual addictive behaviors, pornography use, as well as child pornography use. We provide these services through court referrals as well as self-referrals.

    Inspirational Quotes

    “Perfectionism is a self destructive and addictive belief system that fuels this primary thought: If I look perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid or minimise the painful feelings of shame, judgment, and blame.”

    Brene Brown

    “Somehow we’ve come to equate success with not needing anyone. Many of us are willing to extend a helping hand, but we’re very reluctant to reach out for help when we need it ourselves. It’s as if we’ve divided the world into “those who offer help” and “those who need help.” The truth is that we are both.”

    Brene Brown

    “Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.”
