Medication Management 

 

Dr. Matthew Cooper is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with additional training to provide integrated psychological services and medication management for mental health disorders. Dr. Cooper is a Conditional Prescribing Psychologist in the state of Iowa, supervised by Dr. Darbie Little-Cooper. Dr. Cooper is required by state law to collaborate with your/your child’s primary care physician at the beginning of treatment and when medication changes are made. Prior to your/your child’s first appointment for medication management, you as the patient or as the child’s parent, guardian, or representative, authorizations must be signed for Dr. Cooper to communicate with your/your child’s physician and with Dr. Little-Cooper. An authorization allowing for Dr. Little-Cooper to consult with your/your child’s primary care physician will also need to be signed. Dr. Cooper is unable to provide medication management services without collaboration with your/your child’s primary care physician and his supervisor.

Psychological Testing

Psychological testing may assist to better understand diagnostic questions as referred by a physician, therapist, or the person requesting the evaluation. Psychological testing can be helpful to identify and better understand attention difficulties (e.g. ADHD), learning disorders, autism spectrum disorder, mood and anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and cognitive issues (e.g. neuropsychological symptoms). A licensed psychologist performs psychological testing and has received comprehensive training and education in the area of psychological assessments.

 

Psychological testing involves an intake session (approximately 60 minutes), during which the psychologist obtains a comprehensive history including the referral question, medical, mental health, family, social, and developmental information. The testing itself takes several hours. When testing children, testing may be scheduled over multiple dates. Feedback sessions are also made to go over the results of testing and subsequent report.
