A neuropsychologist is a clinical psychologist who specializes in understanding how changes in a person's brain structure and function affect their thinking, feeling and behavior. I am board-certified in clinical neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) and licensed in Vermont and New York State. I completed 6 years of core and advanced training in Intensive Short-term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) at the University of Dalhousie in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I worked for 30 years as a clinical neuropsychologist, researcher and teacher in the Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry at the University of Rochester Medical Center before entering private practice. I moved to Vermont in October 2023.
I provide the following services to adolescents and adults (age 16 and older) in the community:
1) ISTDP for persons with anxiety, depression, conversion disorder, functional neurological disorder and other conditions where emotions are thought to be contributing to physical symptoms.
2) Clinical, disability and forensic neuropsychological evaluations for patients with a wide range of diagnoses, including epilepsy, stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, depression, anxiety, conversion and somatoform disorders.
