Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a neurological injury that can affect the cognitive, emotional, psychological, and physical functioning of an individual. A holistic approach is taken when assessing and treating the individual. The individual is considered as a whole, incorporating premorbid and post-incident factors, to formulate a comprehensive and accurate picture. This approach will guide the clinician regarding multiple types of treatment the indiviudual may require.


Anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts, and physical changes like increased blood pressure.


Individuals with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness or a rapid heartbeat.

Cognitive Impairment

Cognitive disorder are those that center around the brain's ability to remember and process information. The causes of these disorders may be physical - stroke related changes, head injury, or the degeneration of the brain with aging - but they may also be related to substance abuse or other causes.  Symptoms of cognitive disorders include difficulties with learning new information as well as general problems with short term memory and other cognitive problems. Depending on the exact type of cognitive disorder present, the treatment options may vary.

Learning Disability/ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a neurobehavioral disorder characterized by a combination of inattentiveness, distractibility, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior.


ADHD may appear early or later in life.  It is estimated that 3 percent to 7 percent of school-age children are diagnosed with ADHD; boys are diagnosed more often than girls.  Untreated ADHD has been shown to have long-term adverse affects on academic performance, vocational success, and social-emotional development. 


Addiction is a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continued use/act of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, or health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others.
