A neuropsychologist is a specific type of psychologist who focuses on understanding the relationship between the brain and behavior. Neuropsychologists study how different neurological processes, brain structures, and functions affect cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning. They often work with individuals who have experienced brain injuries, neurological disorders, or other conditions that affect brain function.

Typically neuropsychologists assess cognitive abilities, such as memory, attention, language, and problem-solving skills, using standardized tests and other evaluation methods. They may also provide interventions and treatments to help individuals cope with or improve their cognitive and emotional functioning. Additionally, they may collaborate with other healthcare professionals, such as neurologists, psychiatrists, and speech therapists, to provide comprehensive care for their patients.

What do Neuropsychologists do?

Neuropsychologists play a crucial role in diagnosing, understanding, and treating various neurological conditions and disorders, helping individuals to maximize their quality of life and functioning. They perform a range of duties related to assessing, diagnosing, treating, and researching neurological conditions and disorders, including:


Neuropsychologists conduct comprehensive evaluations of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning using standardized neuropsychological tests, interviews, observations, and other assessment tools. They assess various cognitive domains such as memory, attention, language, executive function, and visuospatial abilities.

Training & Treatment Planning

Neuropsychologists develop individualized treatment plans tailored to the specific needs and abilities of their patients. These plans may include cognitive rehabilitation, psychotherapy, behavioral interventions, pharmacological treatments, and lifestyle modifications aimed at improving cognitive and emotional functioning and enhancing quality of life.

Training, Therapy, & Interventions

Neuropsychologists provide interventions and therapies to help patients cope with cognitive impairments, emotional disturbances, and behavioral challenges resulting from neurological conditions. They may offer cognitive training, compensatory strategies, counseling, stress management techniques, and social skills training to address these issues.


Patient Consultations

Neuropsychologists collaborate with other healthcare professionals, including neurologists, psychiatrists, primary care physicians, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and rehabilitation specialists, to provide comprehensive care for patients with neurological disorders. They offer consultation regarding assessment findings, treatment recommendations, and patient management.


Many neuropsychologists engage in research to advance knowledge in the field of neuropsychology. They may conduct studies on brain-behavior relationships, develop and validate assessment tools, investigate the effectiveness of interventions, explore the neurobiological mechanisms underlying neurological disorders, and contribute to the development of evidence-based practices.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Julia W

Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M

I am extremely happy with my son’s outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
