Diagnosis, Evaluation, and Therapy for Attention, Memory, Emotional, and Learning Difficulties
Diagnosis, Evaluation, and Therapy for Attention, Memory, Emotional, and Learning Difficulties

Cognitive Therapy

Our goal is to help individuals of all ages restore normal brain functioning or compensate for cognitive deficits.

Treatment for problems with thinking and/or memory involves processes such as relearning cognitive skills that have been lost or altered as a result of damage to brain cells or chemistry. If skills cannot be relearned new ones have to be taught in order to enable a person to compensate for their lost cognitive functions.


After a full neuropsychological evaluation, your doctor will determine if you or your loved one is an appropriate candidate for therapy.


Treatment sessions are typically weekly appointments lasting approximately 1 hour.


Treatment lengths range from 6-12 weeks, or longer depending on the particular case.
