Psychologist and Therapist in Boston, Massachusetts Kara Naylon, PhD

Kara Naylon, PhD

Dr. Naylon is a clinical neuropsychologist who provides comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations and treatment for adults with a wide range of neurological, neurodegenerative, medical, and psychological conditions and complications that impact cognitive functioning. Evaluations consist of an in-depth clinical interview to obtain a thorough and unique understanding of each individual, their background, and their presenting concerns followed by comprehensive neuropsychological testing. Assessment results are interpreted in the context of each individual’s unique circumstances. Feedback on results and interpretation is provided to patients and includes detailed descriptions of strengths and weaknesses, diagnostic impressions and implications, and tailored recommendations to ameliorate presenting concerns and improve daily life experience. Dr. Naylon’s clinical interests include neurodegenerative and neurological conditions (dementia, movement disorders, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, etc.), complex medical complications/conditions and impact on cognition, the impact of sleep and psychological symptoms/conditions on cognition, eating disorders, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. Dr. Naylon provides more in-depth intervention and treatment to facilitate implementation of tailored recommendations yielded from neuropsychological evaluations. She provides cognitive rehabilitation therapy to help patients capitalize on cognitive strengths and ameliorate weaknesses. She also provides cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia to improve sleep and, subsequently, cognitive and mood symptoms. Dr. Naylon received her bachelor’s degree in Biology and Psychology from John Carroll University. She received her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology with specialization in Neuropsychology from Adler University. She completed a pre-doctoral internship in Clinical Neuropsychology at the VA North Texas Healthcare System and a two-year fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
