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.
