Psychosexual Evaluation


We are uniquely qualified to complete comprehensive and timely psychosexul evaluations. Psychosexual evaluations (PSE or risk evaluation) assesses a person’s relationships, mental health, empathy, sexual history, accountability for one’s sexual behaviors, motivations for sexual offense(s), arousal patterns, cognitive functioning, attitudes toward sex and desire to make meaningful changes, to aid in determining one’s risk to sexually offend in the future. Psychosexual evaluations are often required or recommended by the court, child protection, or treatment providers. It is important to note that a psychosexual evaluation serves to clarify risk level, treatment needs, and treatment setting. It does not prove guilt or innocence nor does getting an evaluation mean someone is a “sex offender.” 

What to expect:

If you contact us regarding this service, we will seek to gain an understanding of what type of evaluation is needed. We will explain fees based on the evaluation type. If it is determined that an evaluatuon is needed, an initial appointment will be scheduled. Paperwork will be sent to you to complete as well as an estimate of costs. Insurance companies do not cover the cost of psychosexual evaluations. As such, these evaluations are private pay only. The initial session will consist of a clinical interview with a therapist/evaluator, online, where background information as well as details related to the sexual offense will be obtained. Interviews could also be conducted with family members, therapists, and others deemed relevant to your situation. All pertinent legal documents will be obtained and reviewed. Subsequent sessions will consist of taking a series of psychological assessment measures, questionnaires, and risk assessment measures. 

Estimated fees: 

The costs involved with most evaluations will range from $1,500 to $3,000 depending on complexity. Insurance plans cannot be billed for these evaluations. A deposit for half of the estimated cost of the entire evaluation process is due prior to the evaluation starting. Any balance due will be collected prior to the release of results or the issuing of a final report. Any money left in the deposit at the end of the evaluation process will be returned to the client.
