I initially became interested in neuropsychology partly due to personal
experience with family members who would
have benefitted from additional support in
caring for a loved one with a neurodegenerative condition. Currently in
my clinical work, I am grateful to be able to
provide support and assistance to individuals who are seeking to better-understand brain-behavior relationships for a variety of presenting concerns, whether for further understanding of themselves or loved
ones. Equally gratifying is the opportunity
to collaboratively identify evidence-based
treatment options and recommendations.

My approach to neuropsychological
evaluation includes thorough discussions
with patients and at times family members
regarding history and current concerns,
review of medical history and various records, and objective testing designed to
further elucidate cognitive strengths and
weaknesses. This increases clarity regarding
ways to address presenting concerns to
ultimately improve quality of life.
