Psychotherapy & Family Therapy

Psychotherapy Services

Helping patients cope with the social & emotional consequences of an illness or trauma.

Psychotherapy and family interventions are particularly important for patients with a neurologic disorder or disease as they attempt to cope with the social and emotional sequelae of the illness or trauma. Very often, neuropsychological or neuropsychiatric symptoms can be confused with psychological problems. A clinical neuropsychologist who is experienced in both neuropsychology and clinical psychology is able to correctly identify the underlying cause of the psychological or neuropsychological disorders and develop treatment interventions designed to reduce anxiety and depression and facilitate adjustment to what is often a chronic neurologic problem. In addition, a neurologic event does not affect only the patient. We also provide supportive psychotherapy for spouses or family members of someone who has sustained neurologic illness or trauma.
