Treatment Philosophy

Every mind is unique, and as such, every neuropsychological evaluation should be tailored to the uniqueness of each person. It should bring out a person’s strengths as well as address difficulties resulting from neurological disorders. My hope is, not just to identify the correct diagnosis, but also to provide interventions and adaptations that are specific to your situation. Often after evaluation, I see people for neurocognitive rehabilitation or cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy and like including family and significant others, when appropriate. I hope to give each person creative solutions to regain their cognitive abilities or compensate for cognitive loss, to build on their strengths, and to help with the impact that life-changing medical and neurological diagnoses have on the self and on one’s family.

History

Before coming to Powers Ferry, I was a medical school professor for over 30 years where I specialized in neurological and neurosurgical disorders. I directed an adult and child neuropsychological evaluation clinic, a neuro-interventions clinic, and a family interventions training division.

Outside of Powers Ferry

Outside of Powers Ferry, I continue to serve as a consultant to medical schools, continue to author publications in peer-review journals, and engage in clinical research focused on neurological disorders. In doing so, I am able to keep up with the current literature and work to ensure patients receive the most cutting edge, novel approaches to therapy and rehabilitation.
