Notice to clients concerning the current coronavirus issue
May 06, 2020

Our primary concern continues to be the well-being of our clients and staff. On May 4, 2020, Virginia Governor Northam extended key provisions of Executive Order 53, which places restrictions on businesses and gatherings of more than 10 people through at least May 14th. At that time, we will enter Phase I of easing restrictions. While this will ease some limits on businesses, Loudoun Psychological Services will continue to offer therapy services entirely online. While we are able to complete psychological testing intakes online, complete testing must wait until we reopen. We anticipate reopening our doors during Phase II. New patients are welcome to join our practice at this time via Join Today.

Please do not come into the office if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to someone not feeling well.

Coronavirus Info Telehealth Options Available

Returning Soon

At this time, neuropsychological evaluations and assessment are on hold. Our hope is to begin offering this service again once all testing processes are properly in place.

Neuropsychological Evaluations

A neuropsychological evaluation provides comprehensive assessment of patients in whom impairments of cognitive or neuropsychiatric function are evident or suspected.

What is a neuropsychological evaluation?

A neuropsychological evaluation involves tests that are sensitive to problems in brain function.

Unlike imaging studies, like CT or MRI scans that show brain structure, neuropsychological testing examines how well the brain is working when it performs certain functions, such as remembering things, speaking, or processing complex visual or conceptual information.

These functions or tasks form the necessary building blocks of successful living.

Purpose of a neuropsychological evaluation.

A neuropsychological evaluation provides comprehensive assessment of patients in whom impairments of cognitive or neuropsychiatric function are evident or suspected.

Assessment involves a systematic evaluation of higher cognitive abilities to identify possible problems with brain functioning. This helps lead to a diagnosis, defines strengths and weaknesses, and helps develop meaningful treatment programs and options.

Improving MRI and CT scans.

Imaging studies like CT or MRI scans may not detect latent brain abnormalities that can impair many of these functions.

Neuropsychological assessments can reveal brain dysfunction when no structural abnormalities can be seen.

When structural abnormalities have been found, a good neuropsychological assessment provides a way to determine which functions may be impaired, the extent of any impairment, and possible treatment protocols (where appropriate).
