Neuropsychological Assessment:

Unlike more invasive measures of brain function, such as MRI and CT scans, our assessments are completely non-invasive.  You may be asked to complete any number of paper-and-pencil measures or questionnaires and will be asked to look at, listen to, and respond to questions and materials shown during testing, but at no point in time will you have any machines or devices attached to you. These standardized tests are highly sensitive to the effects of brain dysfunction by measuring an individual’s level of cognitive, emotional and behavioural functioning.

Common reasons people are seen for neuropsychological assessment include
(but are not limited to):

  • Neurological impairments (e.g., Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis)
  • Stroke or other neuro-vascular problems (e.g., TIA)
  • Brain injury / concussion
  • Medical / health conditions (e.g., diabetes neuropathy, epilepsy)
  • Substance or alcohol abuse
  • Dementia / mild cognitive impairment (MCI)
  • Issues related to aging (i.e., normal age-related changes to cognition versus dementia)

Notice re: COVID-19 and Treatment Options

With the onset of the COVID-19, many of the health offices and resources upon which we rely have temporarily shut down in order to protect the health and safety of the community. In these uncertain times, one thing you should not have to worry about is access to quality mental health support. The mental health and well-being of you and your loved ones is of utmost importance to me. For that reason, I am pleased to share that all treatment sessions can be provided by telephone or videoconferencing.

Together, we will get through this.

Stay safe, and keep well!

Sincerely,
Kristen
