NEuropsychology

What is a neuropsychological assessment?

A comprehensive neuropsychological assessment includes an evaluation of cognitive, personality and emotional functioning. It is often sought out for diagnostic clarity and treatment planning. Procedures may include an interview, intelligence testing, academic testing, and a variety of other tasks that measure functions such as attention, memory, language, executive functioning, sensory-perceptual integrity, and fine motor skills. Analysis of the results will identify your unique cognitive signature, including potential strengths and weaknesses (s & w), which lead to recommendations in service of optimizing your functioning.

What should I expect?

Evaluations are typically computerized and paper-and-pencil based tasks that have been correlated to brain functioning. Overall, the testing process includes an initial interview, administration of tasks, scoring, interpretation and the generation of a comprehensive report. Depending on individual abilities, tolerance, and the referral question, the entire process may range anywhere between 10-15 hours.

Psychotherapy

It is a very exciting time for psychotherapy! Research indicates that a trusting relationship in conjunction with the skilled use of psychotherapeutic techniques in a safe environment may promote adaptive changes in brain functioning. 

I use an integrated approach, tailoring evidence-based schools of thought to best fit your personality and presenting problem. My goal is to form a relationship that will improve your inner quality of life, and promote harmony in everyday living.
