In the weeks and months following a brain injury, many people feel disoriented, lonely and afraid. They may sense that no one really understands what has happened to them. They may look fine, yet feel very different on the inside as they struggle with the physical, cognitive and emotional impact of their injuries.
Brain injuries disrupt our daily functioning in many areas, including:
- Planning and Organization
These issues can be troubling, even infuriating at first. But based on my 35+ years of successful experience in treating hundreds of brain injury patients and their partners, I know these challenges can be overcome.
If you are an individual struggling with the effects of a brain injury, I will help you make sense of what has happened to you and create a new life that offers meaning, purpose and satisfaction.
If you are the spouse or partner of someone who has suffered a brain injury, I will offer you strategies for dealing with your own grief and restoring the sense of closeness and cooperation that is vital to your relationship.
With more than three decades in the health care field, I bring a unique blend of skills to the challenge of helping you recover. I am a trained speech pathologist with a thorough understanding of brain functioning, as well as a former clinical director of brain injury centers in California and Utah. I am ready to put the full range of my knowledge and expertise to work for you.
