Why Hire a Cognitive Consultant?

Alexandra’s aim is to minimize the stress that families go through when trying to figure out a path for the individual who is struggling.  This is through providing them with the best support in a process that can be very overwhelming.


Not only are most people not told that methods exist to improve cognitive functioning, but if they are, there is limited information about how to access those methods.  Alexandra is familiar with a myriad of neuroplastic therapies and methods and is dedicated to helping people navigate through them. This includes finding solutions that are tailored to the individual needs of that person or family based on affordability, proximity, and time available that they are able to commit to the solution.  As well, her insight and expertise provides her with the ability to help people ascertain in what order the problems should be addressed.  The brain, and its development, is complex.  Being able to direct people to the right programs and techniques, in the right order, is essential to getting maximum benefit in the most timely way.  She is able to provide a road map for the best possible outcomes for a full life because, when you strengthen your brain you improve your options.

“Your brain – every brain – is a work in progress. It is ‘plastic.’ From the day we’re born to the day we die, it continuously revises and remodels, improving or slowly declining, as a function of how we use it.”
