What’s new at NeuroBehavioral Associates?
This year, NeuroBehavioral Associates is adding a new service, Neuropsychologically Informed Strategic Psychotherapy (NISP). NISP relies upon the relationship between brain and behavior as a foundation for approaching psychotherapy and consultation services.
The services will be provided by Dr. Ilana Levy-Paris, a licensed psychologist with specialized training in neuropsychology. Dr. Levy-Paris earned her doctoral degree in clinical psychology at the University of Florida assessing and treating individuals across the lifespan with a wide array of neurodevelopmental, neurologic, and psychological differences. She has completed an APA approved internship through the Boston Consortium and a two-year post-doctoral fellowship. Through her experience and training she has created and implemented behavioral plans to assist
children with ADHD and executive function difficulties as well as more complex neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Individuals and families who may benefit from Dr. Levy-Paris’ services include:
- Individuals or families requiring additional support following the completion of the neuropsychological assessment. Such support may include more in depth review of results and assistance in the implementation of home, school, and community recommendations.
- Children and families struggling with neurodevelopmental disorders impacting family relationships and daily life.
- Individuals in need of coaching sessions in order to learn and improve parenting strategies to better cope with strong-willed children or children with other neurodevelopmental differences.
- Brief therapy targeting attention and memory or executive skills training.
Dr. Levy-Paris also plans to lead groups focusing on the parenting of children who learn differently and individuals with memory issues and aging.
Dr. Levy-Paris is a Maryland native and after many years of training and many moves, has happily returned to the region with her husband and two daughters. For more detailed information regarding Dr. Levy-Paris, please see the link to her VITA below.
