Do I Need Testing for Depression and Anxiety?
Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States. It’s a mood disorder that severely affects your body, thoughts, and feelings, as well as your relationships and daily activities.
Common symptoms of depression include:
- Feelings of worthlessness and loneliness
- Loss of interest and motivation
- Profound sadness and emptiness
- Anger and irritability
- Changes in appetite and weight
- Suicidal thoughts*
*Your safety is our top priority. If you have suicidal thoughts, let your therapist know, contact the Suicide Prevention Hotline (800-784-2433), or call 911 immediately.
Depression often starts during adulthood, but it can occur at any age. In children, depression may present as irritability and anger. It can also happen as you get older, along with other medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes, or heart disease.
Anxiety is a natural emotional reaction to a threat. We all experience it and sometimes leverage it to stay alert and sharp. But when it becomes unbearable and gets in the way of your well-being, it can turn into unhealthy anxiety.
Common symptoms of unhealthy anxiety include:
- Constant worry
- Ruminating thoughts
- Irritability or anger
- Rapid heartbeat or breathing
- Nausea or gastrointestinal problems
Anxiety tends to get worse over time. If left untreated, it can deeply impact other areas of your life (e.g., work, school, social connections) and increase the risk of developing other medical conditions (e.g., low immune response, high blood pressure).
The sooner we diagnose depression and anxiety, the sooner we can treat them, which leads to lasting and effective results. If you have noticed signs of depression or anxiety or are simply looking for answers, we can help.
How Can Depression and Anxiety Assessments Help?
Assessments can make a huge difference in your healing journey. We use the gold standard tools and testing metrics to have an in-depth understanding of your mental health and develop a clear route to move forward.
People experience depression and anxiety signs in many different ways and levels according to their unique personality, background, and current situation. These symptoms may be confusing and difficult to face, and can lead you to believe you are suffering from something else. An early and accurate diagnosis will help you find an explanation for your hardship and identify the specific form of depression or anxiety you are struggling with. An assessment psychologist will gather all this information and provide recommendations.

How Do Assessments Work at Heredia Therapy Group?
Here at Heredia Therapy Group, we provide a safe and confidential space for psychological testing.
First, you will meet with one of our assessment psychologists to discuss your concerns and evaluate whether a full assessment is necessary. If it is, you will then complete a diagnostic interview and a series of tests tailored to your needs.
Lastly, our assessment psychologist will meet with you to go over the diagnosis and test results and make practical suggestions for the future.
Our assessment process typically takes a few weeks to complete to allow for an accurate and thorough examination.
