The Rehab Center

There can be many challenges, both physical and psychological, in returning to a fully functional life after an injury. Often, patients develop problems with depression, anxiety, and inappropriate use of medications that complicate efforts at resuming work and normal activities. For patients with concussions or traumatic brain injuries, cognitive and emotional changes can prove frustrating and debilitating. Psychological and neuropsychological interventions addressing these issues can play a dramatic role in enabling successful rehabilitation.

The Rehab Center’s interdisciplinary team includes licensed psychologists who specialize in health
and rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology. Members of the team provide a wide range
of services, including short-term individual counseling, group therapy, psychological assessments, and neuropsychological assessment and management.
