- I specialize in neuropsychological assessment and treatment of persons with brain injury. Treatment skills include cognitive rehabilitation, assisting with adjustment to injury-related disability, and maximizing community participation. I also conduct federally funded research on predicting and improving community participation and emotional functioning following brain injury.
