Clinical Neuropsychology

A clinical neuropsychologist is a doctoral level psychologist with specialized training in brain-behavior relationships. A neuropsychologist can provide assessment and interventions to people across the age span. They can aid in the diagnosis of brain disorders, assess cognitive skills, create comprehensive treatment plans, and provide specialized interventions for cognitive rehabilitation. Using standardized assessment measures neuropsychologists compare your performance with others with similar backgrounds as well as compared to your own difficulties in daily life. They provide a report describing your strengths and challenges so that your treatment team can improve your quality of life.

Should read "clinical neuropsychiatry" but that wasn't an available option. My practice is psychiatry based, which considers medical, physiological & brain/cognitive differences in addition to psychological factors. Possibilities of neurodivergence (being neurodiverse), as well as cognitive and sensory differences are evaluated and considered in addition to psychological aspects. Neurodivergence, Asperger's & ASD1 assessment & diagnosis is available.

As a clinical neuropsychologist, I have specialty training in the brain-behavior relationship. In assessment, I will learn about you through clinical interview, talking with friends or family, looking at medical and/or school records and finally through cognitive testing. I use a series of tasks to assess a variety of thinking skills. I pull all the information into a report that we discuss at feedback. I aim to provide information that is understandable and answers the questions you have.

— K Wortman, Clinical Psychologist in Oakland, CA

I believe that we are connected in mind, body, and soul and learning how they all work together in our pain and also our joy is key to how well we can live out our lives.

Clinical Neuropsychology is a specialty field within clinical psychology, dedicated to understanding the relationships between brain and behavior, particularly as these relationships can be applied to the diagnosis of brain disorder, assessment of cognitive and behavioral functioning and the design of effective treatment. Evaluations determine strengths and weaknesses, and treatment uses the strengths to help compensate for the weaknesses.
