Testing Options

Below are some of the different testing options I utilize. Some are purchased through other websites; however, most are written and taken in my office. Some offer immediate scoring, but many must be mailed in for scoring. If you do not see a specific test you would like to take, please contact me to discuss ordering that test for you.

"Brooke worked with our staff, interviewing each individually as well as interpreting DISC assessment results for everyone. In the end, I was able to get some helpful feedback about our current staff environment as well as some helpful ideas about how to manage the office going forward."

 

Neurotransmitter testing 

Neurotransmitters are the chemicals in your brain that communicate commands to different parts of your body and impact mood, sleep, focus, etc. Serotonin, Dopamine, and Epinephrine may be some of the names that you might recognize. Some neurotransmitters are exciting while some are inhibitory or calming. We need both in balance. While a urinary neurotransmitter test does not measure exact amounts in the brain, it can be a good indicator of potential problems and more direct testing is much more intrusive. There have been research studies linking levels of neurotransmitters in the urine to specific disorders like depression and PTSD. If you are experiencing concerns with fatigue, irritability, impulsiveness, trouble concentrating, anxiety, depression, insomnia, restlessness, etc., a neurotransmitter test and treatment through supplementation is one of your treatment options.
