Psychologist

A professional specializing in counseling, including adjustment to disability.  Psychologists use tests to identify personality and cognitive functioning.  This information is shared with team members to assure consistency in approaches.  The psychologist may provide individual or group psychotherapy for the purpose of cognitive retraining, management of behavior and the development of coping skills by the patient/client and members of the family.
