For Patients    

Congratulations on starting or continuing your journey to wellness. If you are reading this website, chances are someone either referred or suggested that you undergo neuropsychological testing or seek mental health support, or you are personally researching ways to improve your well-being and better yourself.

 

Neuropsychological Assessment

 

People are commonly referred for a neuropsychological evaluation by a provider to address changes in one’s thinking ability and/or behavior that sometimes is not readily explained by one's current medical conditions or medications. While many people who are referred for testing have preexisting medical conditions (e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury, HIV/AIDS, dementia, etc.), some are referred in order to confirm a diagnosis or to simply obtain clarification about his/her cognitive status and what may be contributing to potential changes. Giving providers a better understanding of what a patient’s cognitive abilities are and what areas of difficulty he/she is experiencing, helps both patients and providers identify resources that may assist in improving his/her quality of life.Dr. Kono utilizes therapeutic assessment, working collaboratively with each patient in gaining knowledge and insight into making changes in their lives, and find solutions to potential problems related to their cognitive difficulties.

 

The goal is to help you better understand yourself and help providers and loved ones know what your needs are. The goal is not to tell you what is wrong with you, but to help you take advantage of your strengths, help you compensate for your areas of difficulty, educate, and provide you with knowledge and support.

Psychotherapy

 

For those of you interested in starting or continuing therapy, welcome. Dr. Kono prioritizes meeting patients “where they are,” utilizing a harm-reduction approach in providing compassionate services to individuals without judgement, and with respect to differences in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion/spirituality, and political views. She places importance on working collaboratively with patients, looking to them as the experts of themselves, while using her own expertise in helping them make changes that better their quality of life and emotional wellness. While Dr. Kono has extensive experience in multiple theoretical orientations (e.g., CBT, psychodynamic, etc.) and therapeutic interventions, she lets each patient guide therapy in terms of their needs and treatment goals, and through an interactive process of support, communication, and education.
