Kelly L. Lange, PhD (she, her, hers)
Dr. Lange sees clients from age 16 through older adulthood and has experience with diverse neurological, medical, and mental health disorders as well as learning differences. She trained in both pediatric and adult neuropsychology and has a particular interest in older teens and young adults whose needs fall in both age groups. She specializes in cognitive training, including the CogSMART program for people coping with brain changes.
Dr. Lange has a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Northwestern University, and both Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Clinical Psychology from the Joint Doctoral Program at San Diego State University and University of California, San Diego. She completed dual-specialty internship training in adult and pediatric neuropsychology at Brown University. She then had a research fellowship at University of California San Diego Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and a pediatric fellowship in private practice with Dr. Robert Gray. Dr. Lange conducted medical research in patients with various neurological diseases at Northwestern University, University of California San Diego, and Brown University, and she taught courses in biological and cognitive psychology at San Diego State University. She combines her expertise in cognition, learning differences, mental health, neurobiology, and educational settings in her neuropsychology and cognitive training practices. Dr. Lange’s experience in both adult and pediatric populations gives her an ideal background for evaluating older teens and young adults whose needs fall in both age groups.
