About Neuropsychology

Neuropsychology is the study of brain-behavior relationships and how brain mechanisms mediate human behavior. Clinical neuropsychologists use this knowledge to evaluate, treat and rehabilitate individuals with cognitive, emotional and behavioral problems.


Our mission is to offer customized psychological care to individuals with neurological disorders, traumatic brain injury, Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses, CFIDS, chronic illness, learning disabilities and those who have experienced trauma and loss. We offer a variety of evaluation and treatment options for children, adults and families. Our focus is to increase awareness and understanding of the injury/illness and its impact, facilitate improvements to optimize the quality of daily life and to promote an understanding of the role of resilience in healing. An important goal of our comprehensive services is to enhance individual and family understanding of the emotional consequences of illness, injury and normal life stressors.


We offer a variety of services including but not limited to Neuropsychological Evaluation, Psychotherapy, Cognitive Remediation and Consultation. Please refer to our Services page for additional information.


Individuals are generally referred by neurologists, family physicians, pediatricians, mental health professionals, rehabilitation specialists, attorneys, educational specialists and corporate and institutional representatives. Self referrals and parent referrals are also accepted.
