First thing first…is it brain or mind? To get that question answered we offer thorough brain-based evaluations where you will leave with answers to that question and an action plan of next steps.

Adolescents and adults have come pouring through our doors seeking answers for issues they have always had that have either been undiagnosed or under-diagnosed which has led to a poor treatment, no treatment at all and a lifetime of frustration.

The good news is that it is NEVER too late. The fact is the brain can be rewired at any age and stage of the lifespan. To be effective at treating the brain, we need to identify exactly what area or areas of the brain may be limiting your success.

Our brain-based evaluation uses a variety of tools to identify what might be happening in your brain that is affecting your ability to maximize your life. We provide a thorough evaluation that examines how well your brain is using/processing the information it receives to support your easeful and efficient function.

We use three forms of

  • Standardized Tests
  • Physiological and Electro-physiological Testing
  • Cognitive Testing
  • Clinical Observations

We don’t outgrow processing disorders, if they are present, we work to compensate around them. Unfortunately, those compensations can cost too much, eroding both quantity and quality of life.
