Our History

MindWise Psychological Services launched in 2021 under the leadership of Dr. Gohar Gyurjyan, a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 20 years of experience working with children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.

Through her work in the community, Dr. Gyurjyan witnessed a growing need for thorough and timely autism testing services. She also recognized the power of collaboration to raise the quality of diagnostic evaluations. These two catalysts inspired her to bring together other leading psychologists, many of whom she had already been working with for years.

Together, they created MindWise – a forward-thinking psychology practice specializing in developmental assessments. MindWise has quickly grown to be one of the largest practices of its kind in San Diego County.

Our Philosophy

The two primary goals for MindWise Psychological Services are simple and straightforward. First, we hire only the best psychologists and hold each of them to the highest professional standards. Second, we encourage open collaboration and communication among our professional staff to maximize the quality of our clinical work on behalf of clients and their families.

Holding true to these guiding principles, MindWise Psychological Services has earned a reputation for providing comprehensive, high quality psychological evaluations. This level of trust and respect is rooted in the collective wealth of knowledge and experience found in our team of professionals. And, it’s this collaborative team approach that truly sets us apart. We never work in silos. Instead, we train together, review each other’s work, and routinely consult with each other – particularly on challenging cases. We are constantly expanding our skills by following the latest discoveries in child development and autism research, both here in San Diego and around the world.

At MindWise, we also understand that accurate diagnoses are paramount to determining the most appropriate and effective treatments for individuals with developmental delays. Each child and family is unique and deserves an evaluation tailored to fit their needs. This is why our testing approach is specific to each family, powered by the latest research, and communicated with sensitivity and compassion to serve the best interest of our clients and ensure the most thorough psychological evaluation.
