Professional statement

Brian Burgoyne, PsyD, LP is owner and co-founder of Minding My Own Psychological Assessments, PLLC. Dr. Burgoyne is a Colorado licensed psychologist with six years of assessment experience. He is a member of the Colorado Psychological Association (CPA) and American Psychological Association’s (APA) Division 42: Psychologists in Independent Practice. He graduated with a doctorate in clinical psychology from the Michigan School of Psychology, an APA-accredited program.

Dr. Burgoyne specializes in psychological assessments that uncover diagnoses such as ADHD, autism spectrum, intellectual disability, neurocognitive disorders, and more. Dr. Burgoyne often works with adults who may have been missed as children with neurodivergent traits. He is a neurodiversity-affirming therapist who promotes inclusivity, understanding, and self-advocacy for his patients. He believes differences should be respected and celebrated.

Awareness of autism spectrum differences have grown in the past 30 years, especially research involving women. Clients often report a better understanding of themselves following an evaluation. Previous interventions that may have been unsuccessful may have been due to the wrong framework and approach. Delayed, missed, and wrong diagnoses limit access to relevant supports and can increase distress.

Psychological assessments provide a ‘mile-high’ view of strengths and growth edges, frame cognitive abilities in an understandable manner, and used to diagnose and accommodate clients. Significant gains are often made in therapy due to a better understanding of symptoms and implementation of individual, evidence-based treatment recommendations.

Neuropsychological assessments are designed to examine a decline in cognitive functioning, using paper-and-pencil tests. People in motor vehicle accidents with traumatic brain injury concerns, as well as older individuals noticing changes in their abilities, may consider a neuropsychological evaluation. These assessments explore activities of daily living and any troubling new cognitive, behavioral, or personality developments. Health and safety practices and independent living skills are also addressed.


Message to clients

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. I appreciate your time and effort searching for answers. If you are interested in talk therapy or a psychological evaluation, I hope to make this process as simple and straightforward as possible. I accept clients with Medicare insurance, while I am an out-of-network provider with other insurances. You may request a superbill for talk therapy in order to attempt reimbursement for your session, although reimbursement from insurance is never guaranteed.

My typical clientele for talk therapy include adults and children experiencing executive functioning concerns, or clients with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and ADHD. The next step awaits. Please call or email for a free, 15-minute consultation, where we will discuss your history and what you are looking for, cover logistical issues, and next steps. I am available to see talk therapy clients throughout Colorado online via telehealth, or in-person at my office. Please note that all psychological and neuropsychological evaluations require an in-person appointment. I look forward to hearing from you.
