I very much enjoy working with patients to help them understand the neuropsychological basis of their cognitive and emotional symptoms, and to promote their living a fulfilling life.  My approach to patient care is grounded in the Jesuit notion of cura personalis, or “care for the whole person” a welcoming approach to the full complexity and richness of who people are.  This is an ideal that has animated my interactions with patients, clients, and students alike.”
