I specialize in working with individuals (& often their loved ones) who are going through a major transition in their life. Oftentimes, this transition is related to a medical diagnosis (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease, Post-Concussive Disorder) but it could also involve any number of situational stressors, including health issues, academic or occupational difficulties, or relationship problems. I may request a neuropsychological evaluation in order to better clarify my client’s cognitive strengths & weaknesses, emotional symptoms, & personality style. This type of comprehensive evaluation will allow me to provide my clients with specific recommendations & a plan for treatment.I am passionate about helping individuals better understand & navigate the challenges they are experiencing. My approach- using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques- is supportive but solution-focused. I help individuals maximize their potential by building on their strengths, teaching compensatory strategies & coping skills, & facilitating communication. We will generate goals together to create positive & effective changes.For more information about my background & experience, please view my website at http://www.southFLneuropsych.com.
