Background

Brenda Cheryl Kaplan, Ph.D.

I am a licensed psychologist with a background in neuropsychology (brain-behavior relationships).

I see children (ages 5 and up) and adults. I also see students from many area public and private schools, and college students from a wide range of universities.

I work closely with psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers, academic specialists, tutors, neurologists, and speech and language therapists to make appropriate referrals.
