Dr. Lynn Rothstein is a bilingual American trained licensed psychologist with specialization in Neuropsychology. She completed her Clinical Psychology degree in 1991 focusing on an eclectic approach to treatment. Given her vast knowledge of an array of different modalities of treatment and years of experience in treating both children and adults, she is able to adapt her treatment approach to the individual needs of the specific client.
She uses her clinical expertise to address issues of depression, anxiety, self esteem, interpersonal relations, death/dying, grief and loss. She continued her training specializing in the field of Neuropsychology; she trained at the prestigious Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine-the world’s first, and one of the largest university affiliated academic centers devoted entirely to inpatient/outpatient care, research and training in rehabilitation medicine for both children and adults.
Her training gained her unprecedented experience in assessing and treating patients suffering from an array of medical/neurological challenges, including among them stroke, head injury, cancer, amputees, Spina Bifida, CP, Parkinson's, MS, autism/Asperger’s, ADD/ADHD etc. She conducts psycho-educational and neuro-cognitive assessments of functioning placing an emphasis on the emotional impact of each emotional/learning/medical/neurological diagnosis: evaluating as well the patient's ability to learn, work, regulate their emotions and engage in interpersonal relationships. She can monitor change over time and make suggestions for interventions to enable the client to function to their highest potential. Dr. Rothstein’s approach is to identify the areas of relative strengths and weaknesses and then empower the client to use their strengths to cope as effectively and independently as possible.
She accepts patients in her private clinic in Efrat. She has given workshops and lectures on stress management, coping with illness, sensory integration deficits, ADHD, ASD and emotional regulation. She is often called upon for consultations by schools and physicians. She currently directs the Pediatric Neuro-Cognitive Rehabilitation Center at Shamir Hospital (Assaf Harofe Medical Center).
