A neuropsychological evaluation involves an interview and the administration of tests to assess how one’s brain functions. Most insurances are accepted, and a referral from a physician is required in order for us to schedule an appointment.
Dr. Spina specializes in using psychotherapy to help people with neurological and/or psychological conditions (such as stroke, attention deficit disorder, traumatic brain injury, or multiple sclerosis) to better understand and develop strategies to cope with or improve the cognitive and emotional challenges associated with these conditions.
Dr. Spina also provides supportive psychotherapy for family members of those with neurologic conditions, including dementia, so that family members can gain a better understanding of their loved one’s behaviors and learn ways of communicating with and supporting loved ones with cognitive challenges.
Most sessions are done in person, however, for those who reside on the outer islands or have difficulty traveling to the office, telephone sessions are available and are reimbursed by medical insurances for Hawai’i residents.
Dr. Spina is a provider with most of the major insurers, including:
