I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own. Won’t it be uncomfortable?
Not at all. People who ask for help know when they need it and have the ability to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then. You already have some strengths that you’ve used before, that for whatever reason isn’t working right now. Perhaps this problem feels overwhelming and is making it difficult to access your past strengths. In our work together, we will help you identify what those strengths are and how to implement them again in what is happening now.
How does it work? What do I have to do in therapy sessions?
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs
How does the neuropsychological assessment process work?
Typically, you will meet for an intake appointment with one of our neuropsychologists to review the patient’s academic, medical, social, and developmental history. If we decide that a school based observation is necessary and helpful, we will usually schedule that for before testing sessions have begun. Then, there are usually three to five sessions of 2 to 3 hours each for testing. During each testing session, we allow breaks and do what we can to ensure that testing is a positive experience. Finally, we will hold a feedback meeting to discuss the results of the testing once the report has been completed so that you will have an opportunity to understand the findings and ask any questions you may have.
I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?
I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.
