Thank you for visiting my website.
For over 35 years until its retirement in 2019, I was the Director /Owner of Neuro-Rehabilitation Consultants Feldman and Associates Inc., a well-respected rehabilitation company in the field of neuro-rehabilitation.
I have been privileged to have worked collaboratively with hundreds of clients, their significant others and /or families throughout the years. I created rehabilitation programs for NRC Feldman and Associates Inc. based on extensive experience and best practice guidelines that I helped to develop for the: Ontario Association of Social Workers ( OASW) as its chair; and as an expert panel member with the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF): ” Guideline for Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury &Persistent Symptoms Third Edition; member of their Implementation Committee “Standards for Post- Concussion Care from Diagnosis to The Interdisciplinary Concussion Clinic”; Appointed member of the (ONF) Review Committee- “Guidelines for Concussion/Mild TBI and Persistent Symptoms”; and Member of the Implementation Advisory Committee “The Development and Implementation of Clinical Practice Guidelines for Rehabilitation of Adults with Moderate-Severe TBI.”
HELPING YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY TOWARDS A LIFE WELL LIVED
Many have sought out and benefited from my services as a registered Social Worker, having provided counselling and therapy that helped clients develop skills and strategies to meet their life goals and manage their challenges.
I have extensive experience in treating adolescents and adults with severe, moderate or mild traumatic brain injury ( mTBI/concussion), stroke and other neurological impairments.
As well, I have developed a process to help individuals to communicate difficult conversations about important life decisions.
I use an eclectic approach to my work to benefit my clients based on diverse and unique needs. Interventions are founded on a bio-psycho model, borrowing from the fields of Psycho- Education, Mindfulness Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Grief Therapy and Neuro-Rehabilitation Counselling.
I have developed a network of experienced and highly recognized health care professionals who can be part of our consultation and treatment team. They include but are not limited to occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, physiotherapists, psychologists, physicians, tutors, therapy support workers, and personal support workers.
I maintain and continue to expand professional expertise by attending and/or presenting at conferences. I have participated in various research projects in order to enhance my own and others’ work in the field of neuro-rehabilitation.
