The Minneapolis Clinic of Neurology offers clinical psychology services at our Golden Valley office through Patricia J. Aletky, Ph.D., L.P.
Patricia J. Aletky, Ph.D., L.P. provides psychological services to adults and older children/teens. Therapy may be provided to individuals, couples or families. She commonly sees patients with symptoms of depression, anxiety and more serious mental illnesses. In addition to the general practice of clinical psychology, Dr. Aletky also has extensive experience and expertise as a forensic consultant/independent examiner.
Dr. Aletky starts with an evaluation, which typically involves two sessions, the first focused on what brings you in for psychology services and the second on your history. An objective personality test and, possibly, a brief aptitude test are typically used. These are tests that you take on your own at your convenience in the clinic. Dr. Aletky will interpret the tests and explain the outcomes to you. Based on Dr. Aletky’s assessment and your goals and wishes, an individualized treatment plan is developed and intermittently adjusted. Dr. Aletky may also suggest a different provider or type of provider if she feels that is more appropriate.
