Olivia Kuhn, Ph.D.
I am a post-doctoral fellow at the Haffey Center for Attention and Memory. I earned my B.A. in Neuroscience and Behavior at Vassar College and my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Suffolk University. I have trained and worked in a variety of settings including Albany Medical College, Boston Medical Center, Cambridge Eating Disorders Center, Capital District Psychiatric Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Newton Public Schools, Suffolk University Counseling Health and Wellness Center, and the Veterans Health Administration. I am pleased to now extend my work to the Haffey Center community.
In conducting an assessment, I prioritize transparent communication to build a trusting relationship, with a focus on developing an understanding of one’s individual strengths and vulnerabilities. When learning about your presenting concerns, I form hypotheses about what additional areas may have gone unnoticed and should also be explored. As such, you can feel assured that your experience and concerns are valued and that, through the assessment process, together we can discover the types of answers you have been seeking.
I am able to offer assessments in the areas of ADHD, educational concerns and issues and for accommodations on standardized tests such as the SAT, GRE and LSAT.
My passion for reading and synthesizing scientific findings from a variety of psychological literatures consistently updates my approach in offering clients the best care possible. I am an active psychological scientist and publish under my maiden name, Olivia H. Tousignant.
