In the Clinic, we offer psychotherapy to individuals with the aim of helping them cope more effectively, gain greater insight into their problems, and achieve specific goals. We strive to provide high quality treatments that are supported by the latest scientific research and we offer cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy (IPT), and short-term psychodynamic therapy. Therapy sessions are usually 55 minutes long and typically occur once per week. The duration of your treatment will depend on the issues you are working on and will be decided jointly between yourself and your therapist. A typical course of therapy is for 8 – 20 weeks.

Starting September 2022, we will offer neuropsychological assessment services for adults. A neuropsychological assessment involves standardized testing of cognitive skills (e.g. attention, memory, thinking speed) that are sensitive to the effects of brain dysfunction. It is designed to show which specific cognitive skills are impaired and preserved. The neuropsychological assessment has several purposes. It can help physicians to clarify a person’s medical diagnosis, describe the current impact of brain injury or disease, establish a “baseline” or measure change over time (recovery, treatment response, disease progression), identify disability accommodations for work or school, and/or determine rehabilitation needs.
A neuropsychological assessment includes a clinical interview (history-talking), 3-4 hours of standardized testing, a follow-up meeting to discuss the test results, and a written report. Recommendations for treatment may be offered, but treatment is not provided as part of this service. Briefer assessments (e.g., 60 minutes of standardized testing) may be sufficient for certain purposes (e.g., to screen for the presence of cognitive impairment). Because trainees are involved in all Clinic services, please allow up to 6 weeks for verbal feedback on the test results and up to 12 weeks for a written report. Trainees will be supervised by Dr. Noah Silverberg, a registered psychologist board-certified in clinical neuropsychology.
Clients may be referred by a physician or nurse practitioner using this medical form for neuropsychological assessment. Clients who self-refer will need to arrange for a physician or nurse practitioner to complete this same form.
