Thank you for visiting my practice page. I am a licensed psychologist specializing psychological services for older adults and individuals with neurological disorders, including dementia. I am a Medicare provider, trained to diagnose and treat depression, anxiety, and substance abuse problems for individuals 50 and older.
As a neuropsychologist, I am able to conduct specialized cognitive testing to identify memory, attention, and other problems that can arise from changes to the brain. This information may be ordered by your physician to determine if cognitive problems are typical for someone’s age or the result of an underlying disease process such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, or vascular changes to the brain. Follow this link for more information about the Neuropsychological Evaluation.
Finally, I also work with spouses and family members who are providing in-home care for individuals with dementia, chronic illness or mobility challenges. The burdens of being a caregiver can cause tremendous stress that affect the quality of life for both the spouse and the person with the disabling condition.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to answer them.
