What is Colloborative/Therapeutic Assessment or (C/TA)?

Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment (C/TA) is a type of intervention that utilizes psychological testing to provide you with better awareness and understanding, providing much more than a diagnosis.

It is a psychological assessment with therapeutic benefits.

C/TA combines the science of validated psychological tests with a specific emphasis on the human elements of curiosity, compassion, humility, openness, respect, and collaboration between the client and psychologist throughout the process.

The aim of C/TA is to help you craft a more balanced, accurate, and compassionate self-narrative that helps you feel empowered and prepared to make positive changes in your life. 


“We’re dedicated to bringing high-performing individuals and the most dedicated psychologists who use science, action, and wholeheartedness to hold space for #allthefeels and all the #idontknowwhatifeels.”

Who will I be working with?

Dr. William Hasek

Dr. Will Hasek holds a PhD in clinical psychology from Duquesne University where the Colloborative / Therapeutic Assessment Model was created. 

While at Duquesne, Dr. Hasek studied and trained extensively with Dr. Constance Fischer who was the founder of C/TA.

Dr. Hasek also holds his board certification (ABPP) in clinical psychology.

Dr. Hasek’s approach to his work:

“Authenticity is a core value. I believe that I owe it to you, to be honest about what I am observing and thinking. When I see you downplaying your strengths or not treating yourself with compassion, I am going to point it out and help you develop a new perspective. My ultimate goal is for you to become the best version of yourself and to make clear, intentional decisions about where you want your life to go.”

How do I know if Collaborative Assessment would be helpful for me?

Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment is beneficial in various situations.

Here are some common situations where it can help:

  • When you’re deciding whether to start therapy
    At the beginning of therapy or treatment to create a roadmap for your goals.
  • During therapy, when you and your therapist want deeper insights.
  • If you’re curious to learn more about yourself.
  • When you feel stuck or indecisive in one or more areas of life

For example, if you find that you keep talking about the same topics in therapy but not making any progress, an assessment could help you look at these issues from a new angle.

Let’s say you are having the same arguments with your spouse, the assessment could help identify what is really at stake for you in these arguments and identify how your communication patterns could be undermining your ability to work through the conflict.

What does Colloborative / Therapeutic Assessment involve?

Collaborative assessments start with collaboration between you and your psychologist.

At the beginning, Dr. Hasek will work with you to craft individualized assessment questions about areas where you feel stuck or stressed, like relationships, emotional challenges, work or business, relationship or life transitions, family, sexuality / gender identity, spirituality, or more.

Based on his expertise in collaborative and therapeutic assessment, Dr. Hasek will work with you to match your desired goals with targeted and thoughtful assessment questions.

These questions guide us in tailoring your assessment and selecting suitable tests and assessments.

Some examples of colloborative assessment questions that may be answered:

  • Why do I find it so hard to trust others?
  • Why do I end up in unhealthy relationships?
  • Why do I struggle to assert my needs and boundaries in relationships?
  • What are my core strengths and how can I use them to deal with challenges moving forward?
  • How do my past relationships affect my personality and communication patterns?
  • How can I express myself more effectively so that others understand where I am coming from?

Dr. Hasek will select appropriate empirically valid tests and assessments matched to your assessment questions.

In general, Dr. Hasek will spend time asking you questions to gather more clarifying information to provide insight into your assessment questions, administer questionnaires, and work on tasks that may involve novel and open-ended tasks.

Throughout the assessment, Dr. Hasek will also discuss your reactions to each assessment or task. You may even experiment with newfound insights to offer fresh perspectives on yourself and your challenges.

How long does it take?

Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment offers 2 – 4 flexible, tailored, and bespoke sessions, usually spanning 1-2 hours, over 2-4 weeks.

You will go over your test results with Dr. Hasek,  linking them to your questions and experiences.

Following your discussion, you’ll receive a written summary of the assessment findings and recommendations.

How much does it cost?

At this time, Dr. Hasek’s initial rate for C/TA varies depending on the assessment questions, collaterals you would like him to interview. For most clients, the range is between $1,000 to $1,500.

We will provide you a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company for any out-of-network reimbursement they provide. 

In some cases, you can use an HSA card to pay for the assessment. Please check with your insurance company or benefits administrator, as applicable.

Information from collaterals (e.g., partner, friends, family, coworkers, supervisors) can provide the most useful information. In general, Dr. Hasek tries to speak with 1 – 2 collaterals. If more are required or it is extremely difficult to schedule time with them, addional costs may be required.
