Psychologist and Therapist in McLean, Virginia Emily Caster, PsyD

Emily Caster, PsyD

Emily Caster, Psy.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in neuropsychological assessment. Dr. Caster completed her undergraduate degree at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her doctoral degree was obtained from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center at New Orleans, School of Medicine. Her post-doctoral work included a two-year fellowship in neuropsychology in a multidisciplinary training environment in Northern Virginia (private practice setting and inpatient hospital setting), and included didactic training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC: 2-year Neuropsychology Fellowship Seminar).

Dr. Caster is the NFL Neuropsychology Consultant to the Washington Commanders. She has worked as the Palo Alto Division Neuropsychologist for the Polytrauma Network Site at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System.

Dr. Caster approaches neuropsychological evaluation with a flexible diagnostic procedure instead of an exhaustive multi-day process. “I start off by seeking to first understand the patient’s chief complaint and how it may be affecting a person’s quality of life, ability to perform cognitively, and interact socially. By focusing the testing battery on the primary areas of concern and expanding outward; an optimal balance is struck between problem-focused and comprehensive that maximally benefits patient care. My approach is more fine-turned and it improves the recommendation capacity because its concentrated on the exact concerns of the patient and his or her loved ones.” Dr. Caster has a very hands-on approach to neuropsychological evaluations and guides her patients though each step of the process – whether it be testing, feedback, ongoing care, or repeat assessments.
