Psychology/Neuropsychology

The Rehabilitation Medicine Clinic provides holistic treatment that integrates both physical and psychological issues in order to facilitate timely and optimal recovery. Consistent with that philosophy is the presence of a fully licensed Psychologist on our interdisciplinary Rehabilitation team. Our psychologist provides individualized psychological and neuropsychological services, based on the integration of a patient's strengths, weaknesses, values, and expectations. The overall goal is to assist each person in maximizing their level of functioning, minimize disability and increase self-esteem. We believe that good rehabilitation is about thriving, not just surviving.
