Neuropsychological Assessment & Psychotherapy
I offer a select number of slots for individual psychotherapy for treatment of Depression, Chronic Pain, and ADHD . I specializes in South Asian and Women's issues. In therapy, I follow an eclectic approach with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and short term psychodynamic psychotherapy. Typical length of treatment is 12-16 sessions. Long term therapy is also offered.
I have been a practicing Neuropsychologist in the Bay Area since 2003. I completed my Post Doctoral training at San Francisco General Hospital and Children's Hospital, Oakland. Presently I have a private practice in Fremont, CA and also work as Adjunct Faculty at the Wright Institute, Berkeley where I work as a supervisor at the Wright Institute APA internship program at Contra Costa County Regional Center.
I have supervised doctorate students in the field of Neuropsychology for over 15 years. I also offer training in Neuropsychology at workshops in Bay Area colleges and hospitals.
The neuropsychological evaluations I provide help identify areas of strengths & weaknesses of an individual in order to help with treatment planning, management of symptoms/behaviors and diagnostic clarification. I works with adults (ages 18-99) and children (ages 6 to 18).
Evaluations focus on assessing for memory functioning, identifying cognitive functioning in individuals following head injury, stroke, concussions , dementia, capacity, adult autism, psychological evaluations, learning disability evaluations and ADHD evaluations for adults and children. I have experience with working in school settings and being part of IEP teams . I help to formulate recommendations that focus on accommodations for the child in the school setting and in standardized test settings.
