Since 2001, I have worked as a psychologist with hundreds of survivors of traumatic/acquired brain injury, and their families, by providing direct psychological services for them with the highly specialized knowledge and skill required to address the many psychological challenges that can such life-changing injuries produce. Recovery, both from an individual and a family perspective, is a tremendously unique challenge for all involved. Over the past two decades, medical technology has advanced so greatly that the lives of those who have suffered even the most dire life-threatening brain injuries can often be saved. However, while many such lives are now able to be saved, medically, the treatment for the cognitive and emotional complexities that oft times arise from such injuries has not yet advanced to such a degree. Indeed, while the needs of brain injury survivors and their families are better understood, and rehabilitative therapies have also advanced, they understandably have not done so at the same pace that the absolute life-saving capabilities of modern medicine has. As a result, while brain injury survivors may be saved from their life-and-death medical emergency, living with its results can be overwhelming and adversely impact one's life, and those of loved ones, to a tremendous degree across all facets of life. Thus, it is often imperative for survivors of traumatic brain injuries, and their families, to seek out professionals in all relevant treatment disciplines who are well-versed and well-experienced in treating the uniquely challenging sequelae, for both survivors and their families, that often arise in the wake of traumatic brain injury.
If you or a loved one are struggling in the aftermath of a traumatic or acquired brain injury, feel free to contact me to see if I may be able to help. Travel options can be discussed.
