What would therapy look like?

Psychology focuses on mental and behavioral disorders, whereas neuropsychology focuses more on brain-behavior relationships. Dr. Sutton's psychological practice is comprised of primarily therapy (treatment) with some assessment.  In contrast, her neuropsychological practice is comprised primarily of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning, with some treatment when appropriate.

A psychologist is one who holds a doctoral degree and specialized training in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental and behavioral disorders.
