How We Help
At NNI we offer comprehensive care across a range of services. Services include diagnostic interviews, psychotherapy (counseling), and psychological and neuropsychological assessment. Our providers see clients from age 2 through the life span. Our goal is to serve and support individuals and families through whatever difficulties they face at different life stages.
“Therapy,” “Psychotherapy,” or “Counseling” are synonyms for the notion of committing to a number of individual sessions with a provider to address specific concerns. Therapy is sometimes an extension of any of the diagnostic conclusions or reasons for Neuropsychological assessment. For example, someone who had a traumatic brain injury or learns they have Dementia might decide to work individually with a therapist to discuss issues related to their emotional and relationship adjustment to the injury or diagnosis. Another example might be a child who is diagnosed with ADHD or Autism and the family chooses to provide behavior training for the child with a specialist to improve behaviors at school or home.
Neuropsychology is a specialty profession that focuses on the study of brain-behavior relationships. A clinical neuropsychologist is a licensed psychologist who has specialized, with extensive additional training, in the field of neuropsychology with expertise in how different abilities, learning, and behaviors are related to brain functioning. Appropriate training for a neuropsychologist includes a doctorate in psychology and a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology. Division 40 Clinical Neuropsychology of the American Psychological Association guidelines require background in neuroanatomy, cognitive psychology, brain functioning, brain injury or disease processes, and neuropsychological testing.
