Not wanting to go alone into an office with a strange lady is hardly a sign of ODD ! Depending on the lady, I might be somewhat reluctant myself !
And you're so right, if she asks "Would you like to ...?" a frank, literal-minded and intelligent child might well admit that no, he wouldn't LIKE to do so. I'd prefer diagnoses to be made by a properly qualified child psychologist or child psychiatrist. An educational psychologist often would not have much experience of actual clinical problems and diagnoses. I have a friend whose son, perfectly normal though highly active to my sight, has been undergoing long and highly expensive, complex "treatment" by OTs and others, for a diagnosis nobody seems able to properly explain to me.
Choosing to identify with the bad guy in movies would be an effective way of channelling some of his anger and aggression, as could choosing rougher companions, who could do the aggressive things he thinks about but does't actually do.
