Dr. Ildiko Tabori
Psychotherapy, known simply as “therapy,” is a treatment option involving talking through psychological difficulties and learning effective strategies to handle such challenges. It is useful for people who are struggling to function in their daily lives due to issues like stress, depression, anxiety, addiction, and relationship difficulties. It is also useful for people who are struggling to function due to conditions like generalized anxiety disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Psychotherapy is intended to address the adverse psychological and social effects of one’s life challenges and provide effective tools for managing one’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Psychotherapy may involve an exploration of several issues such as those that led to your functional difficulties (e.g., past abuse, unhealthy coping strategies, trauma)...
Psychological Assessment - Personal Assessment, Diagnostic Assessment, Learning Disabilities
Psychological assessment is a technique used to learn facts about you with regard to your current functioning and/or diagnosis, or as a tool to predict behavior or functioning in the future. Psychological assessments evaluate both cognitive and intellectual ability and personality factors. Such evaluations typically involve three components: a face-to-face interview, behavioral observations, and administration of specific tests. Dr. Tabori integrates and examines these three components so opinions, diagnoses, and recommendations can be made about your problem or referral reason.
A psychological assessment may be best if you are experiencing changes in personality or mood, difficulty concentrating, educational problems or require a fitness for duty evaluation (typical in law enforcement and with medical and legal professionals).
Neuropsychological Assessment - Clinical Neuropsychology, Diagnostic Neuropsychology, Sport Neuropsychology
A neurological evaluation is a three-pronged approach: an examination by a neurologist, neuro-imaging (e.g., MRI, CT scan), and a neuropsychological evaluation. Together, these components allow a medical professional to make an accurate diagnosis about your current level of cognitive functioning and develop a treatment plan. The neuropsychological evaluation involves testing that is sensitive to problems in brain functioning and examines how well your brain is working when it performs certain functions, like remembering. The types of tests you take depend upon the questions you and your referring doctor have, such as evaluation subsequent to concussion and other sports-related head injuries or evaluation for dementia.
Dr. Tabori specializes in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), the remarkably successful treatment that has proven effective in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other psychological traumas. As its name suggests, EMDR strategically incorporates bilateral stimulation as a treatment modality, interrupting the mechanisms that cause the often-unbearable effects of traumatic events. The treatment can help release the grip that past tragedies hold over your current quality of life.
The EMDR treatment process calls for the patient to recount the troubling experience (or experiences) while the therapist utilizes eye movements or other methods of bilateral stimulations...
