Profile
“I was drawn to neuropsychology because I have always been fascinated by the ways the brain impacts thinking, behaviors, and mood.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was drawn to neuropsychology because I have always been fascinated by the ways the brain impacts thinking, behaviors, and mood. Neuropsychological evaluation allows for objective, scientific assessment of an individual’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses, which allows me to make personalized treatment recommendations to optimize an individual’s success.
What should someone know about working with you?
Neuropsychological evaluation typically involves a one-hour clinical interview and two to three hours of standardized test administration. I will then generate a formal neuropsychological report. Results and recommendations will be shared in a one-hour feedback session on another day.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I sought board certification through the American Board of Professional Psychology to ensure that I meet the highest standards for competence in neuropsychology. This process requires a doctoral degree, supplemental training, a two-year postdoctoral fellowship, credential verification and review, a written examination, submission of work samples, and an oral examination.
