We are still operating during the COVID-19 Santa Cruz & Santa Clara County Shelter in Place Order as an Essential “Mental Healthcare” entity. We have adopted CDC cleaning guidelines and incorporated Pearson Assessment and the National Academy of Neuropsychology recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing testing supplies and maximizing safety. We are a “low traffic” provider and will have protective gear such as masks and/or gloves if requested. We sanitize our facility after each patient or professional interaction and will not operate if our staff has any symptoms of illness. We request that no one exposed to COVID-19 or that has cold or flu like symptoms schedule at this time. We are also offering some aspects of our practice through HIPAA complaint telemed/telehealth services.

What is a Neuropsychological Evaluation?

A neuropsychological evaluation measures “how you think” with simple to more difficult mental tasks. We also time some of the tasks to see if speed is an issue. Understanding how and how fast you “think” helps us find the right diagnosis for you. The right diagnosis helps us find ways for you to improve your life or win your legal case. The results can also help us understand how much you struggle, because we compare your results to others who do not struggle. Once we understand how you “think” compared to others, we are able to know how severe your issues are. Most of the time verbal descriptions are not enough. The scores from a neuropsychological evaluation gives us a rating, much like numbers on a thermometer. With these ratings, we have a measurement that everyone can understand.
