Independent Medical Evaluations
Focuses on helping your child succeed. We work with children and adolescents clarifying where they are academically and developmentally. Our evaluations create a full picture of your child, identifying his or her unique learning, social, and emotional profile. Our approach is based on our individualized approach ensuring your child’s strengths and weaknesses are fully recognized and allowing us to create a plan for his or her success.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the No. 1 concussion risk for people under the age of 20 is falling off a bicycle. However, concussions come from multiple sources including sports, falls, and motor vehicle accidents.
Memory Loss/Aging Adults
There is often confusion differentiating memory disorders and other issues that can mimic dementia, like medication effects or emotional factors. A comprehensive memory and cognitive assessment can take the frustration out and help establish any treatment recommendations for known or suspected neurologic or neuropsychiatric disorders. These include memory disorders, dementia, traumatic brain injury, stroke, brain tumors, and neurocognitive and behavioral impairments resulting from physical illness.
In addition to forensic assessments, we have special interests in capacity evaluations in older adults, speaking to one’s medical and financial decision-making abilities.
What We Do
Psychotherapy sessions address coping techniques and problem solving strategies, as well as methods for improving self-esteem and interpersonal skills. Adjustment to living with a neurological injury/disease is a major focus. Cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness are typical modalities.
This group strives to improve the emotional and psychological issues that are common to individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, or to those living with other chronic illnesses with a specialized focus on high functioning patients. This therapy provides methods for improving communication skills, which are often affected after suffering a brain injury. Coping methods and goals related to overcoming such issues are discussed and established. Group therapy meets every Friday from 1pm-2pm in our conference room. Please contact Renee at 704-366-9930 with questions about participating.
Help the whole family cope with, understand, and adjust to life after a loved one has suffered a brain injury. Sessions help to promote understanding and acceptance of neurological impairment and the life consequences of the impairment. There is also a strong focus upon helping families avoid “burn out” and develop successful stress management techniques.
