Our team includes: Dr. Tiffany Taft, Dr. Emily Edlynn, Dr. Lori Burda, Colleen Muchowski, LCSW, and Emily Hahn, MSW.

Dr. Brietzke specializes in the neuropsychological evaluation of a wide range of disorders of the brain including head injuries, ADHD, learning difficulties, emotional problems and memory disorders. The neuropsychological testing offered by Dr. Brietzke provides a more specific understanding of brain functioning than psychological, psychiatric or school-based testing does, resulting in more accurate diagnosis and more effective treatment. He also integrates the cutting-edge neuroimaging and brainmapping tools with traditional neuropsychological tests. This allows for unprecedented levels of understanding of an individual's underlying brain processes and opens up many new treatment options.

I know my name is long, but I go by Katya. I decided to become a therapist because I wanted a career that offered an opportunity to make a genuine difference in people's lives. I think there's nothing better than seeing people grow and gain insight about their lives and behaviors. My therapeutic approach is client-centered and I utilize CBT, mindfulness-based interventions, and trauma informed care. I am excited to provide accessibility to mental health and work on creating less stigma in the field of behavioral health. “Definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing expecting different results.”

It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
