Evaluations, consultations, second opinions, and treatment are available. Initial evaluations typically take place over two to three sessions. They include interview of the patient and caregivers (in the case of children); gathering of medical, psychiatric, social, and family history; chronology of salient life events; review of prior evaluations and records; consultation with relevant clinicians and/or educators.

Treatment recommendations are based on an individualized integrative approach, taking into account the many facets of a person – mental, physical, and spiritual spheres; family and social life; academic and work environment; individual capacity for insight; and motivation for change. This may include psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, medications, botanicals, supplements, nutritional advice, specific exercises, etc.
