A healthy mind is essential to a happy life. Our neuropsychologists are here to care for your mental health at all times, even when you're going through physical health treatment.


Neuropsychology is a branch of psychology that studies and treats the relationship between the brain and our behavior. A clinical neuropsychologist works to understand the structure and function of the brain and how it affects human behavior, thinking and abnormal functioning of the central nervous system. Our clinical neuropsychologists work with our Trauma and Burn Care services to heal your mind while they are healing your body.
