Hope. Relief. Freedom. You can experience all of this as you recognize, treat, and recover from your concussion or traumatic brain injury.
There are several vital things you need to know about concussions:
- Most concussions are undetected because people think if you didn't lose consciousness you didn't have a concussion.
- Concussions DO NOT heal by themselves. If they are not treated appropriately they will cause permanent problems.
- Untreated concussions lead to chronic pain, higher vulnerability to injury, behavior and attitude problems in children, problems with memory, substance abuse, anger and violent behavior, and potentially to severe illnesses such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, and dementia.
- Concussions can be successfully and fully treated!
If you or a family member have suffered a head injury or concussion as part of your participation in sports, or in some type of accident, or want a personalized baseline assessment of your cognitive functioning for school requirements and as a preventive measure of future cognitive difficulties, I can help you. We will identify how your brain functions, work with you to recover from your injury, and maximize your academic, sports, or professional performance while protecting your most important asset - your brain!
Also, if you, a spouse or a parent has begun to experience difficulties with memory, concentration, attention and other aspects of brain functioning, I can help you determine if it is related to untreated concussions, medication, illness, injury or an aspect of the aging process. We can identify the current level of brain functioning, and have baseline information that can be used to track progress, recovery, or decline in the unfortunate event that is occurring.
If you're looking for therapy for anxiety, depression, marriage or relational issues, substance abuse, or a variety of other issues, you can experience Hope, Relief and Freedom as well. If you need have a mental illness or one of the issues listed above, need extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
