Thank you for visiting my practice page.
I am a licensed psychologist who provides psychological services for individuals of any age who might be struggling with neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, and dementia. As a neuropsychologist, I am trained to conduct specialized cognitive testing to assess 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.
You can follow this link for more information about the Neuropsychological Evaluation.
I have specialized training in geriatric psychology, but for the past 15 years, I have also been treating men and women of all ages who might be experiencing depression, anxiety, and substance abuse problems. My treatment strategies are strongly influenced by the principles of positive psychology. I work to develop a partnership with my clients that allows them to begin to heal themselves by tapping on life skills they already possess or a capable of developing.
Finally, I also work with spouses and family members who are providing care for individuals with dementia and chronic illness. 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.
