Outpatient Psychotherapy

Campbell Psychological Services offers traditional outpatient psychotherapy. This typically involves weekly appointments lasting about 55 minutes each. All of our therapists have experience and an interest in treating trauma. Most of our team is trained and/or certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and EMDR, which are evidence-based therapies to treat the negative effects of trauma.

Who to Refer: Youth struggling with mental health issues. This may includes anxiety, depression, anger management, impulsivity, relationship problems, conflict resolution, or posttraumatic stress. Youth who need support to cope with stressful life circumstances, including trauma.

How to Refer:  You may wish to contact our Care Coordinator first to ask if we have openings: ClientCare@CampbellPsychPA.com, (717) 422-6440. Then, fax a completed Referral Form and Release (available at top of page) to Campbell Psychological Services at (717) 620-0536.

Trauma-Informed Mental Health Assessment

This mental health assessment is completed in one 2-3 hour appointment by a licensed psychologist or postdoctoral psychology resident. It includes trauma-specific screening tools and a general mental health measure. Goals include:

  1. Assess appropriateness for outpatient trauma therapy. If youth is not appropriate, provide family and county with guidance regarding intervention needs.
  2. Assess the extent to which current symptoms and difficulties are trauma-related.
  3. Assess whether other mental health issues need to be prioritized for treatment.
  4. Provide consultative services to Juvenile Probation to guide case planning for youth who may be exhibiting the effects of trauma.

Please provide a copy of the FAQ for Families to the youth’s parent or caregiver.

Information Sharing:  A Trauma-Focused Assessment Summary will be provided to JPO as soon as possible after the assessment, as long as the youth agrees. The Summary includes mental health treatment recommendations. Upon request, the evaluator can provide consultation to assist with the TIDP and case planning.

Psychological Evaluation

More information about psychological evaluations can be found on our Evaluation page. A psychological evaluation is similar to the Trauma-Focused Mental Health Assessment, but goes into much greater depth and includes a full biopsychosocial evaluation report. The evaluator will obtain and review records and contact third parties, such as school, for input. Personality testing may be included (e.g., MMPI-A-RF, projective testing). A psychological evaluation often requires more than one appointment.

Who to Refer: A psychological evaluation may be appropriate if the nature of the youth’s mental health need, diagnosis, and the impact on current functioning are unclear, or if the appropriate level of treatment needs to be determined. A psychological evaluation is often appropriate for youth who have had chronic or severe problems and a variety of different services, where a comprehensive picture would be helpful.

*Please note that we do not provide autism evaluations, neuropsychological testing, or testing for IQ, learning disabilities, or adaptive skills.
