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.

Please note this should read neuropsychiatry - which is different than neuropsychology. Psychiatry includes neurophysiology and medical aspects of psych as well as feelings and emotion states. With this, I offer neurocognitive testing for attention (ADHD) issues, Asperger's (ASD1), Cognition issues (such as brain fog impact from long-covid, CFS), learning differences, etc. This type of testing objectively measures working memory, processing speed, executive function, memory & other elements.

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.

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.
