These conditions include mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and seizure disorder. She also has extensive experience assessing atypical presentations of dementia and movement disorders such as primary progressive aphasia, fronto-temporal dementia, and progressive supranuclear palsy. She evaluates psychiatric conditions such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and eating disorders. Dr. Kurniadi has worked in inpatient hospital rehabilitation and neurology outpatient settings. She is fluent in Spanish and conducts neuropsychological evaluations with Spanish-speaking individuals. She is committed to providing quality, patient-centered care to identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses, create tailored treatment recommendations, and improve patient quality of life.
Dr. Kurniadi received her doctorate in clinical psychology from California School of Professional Psychology, during which she completed several neuropsychology practica at the University of California, San Diego. She completed her predoctoral internship at the Denver VA HealthCare System, and her two-year postdoctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology at the University of Utah, School of Medicine. She has been a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of California since 2021 and is currently pursuing board certification in neuropsychology.
Dr. Kurniadi has published several research articles, book chapters, and has presented at national neuropsychology conferences. Her research focuses primarily on cognitive functioning in older adults. For example, she has examined the use of neurocognitive tests as ecologically valid measures of executive functioning among older adults. She has also published on the interaction between cognition, mood, and movement symptoms in individuals with Parkinson’s disease. Her current research examines neurocognitive change in older adults with mild cognitive impairment who remain stable versus those who develop dementia. She has also served as a reviewer for two peer-reviewed neuropsychology journals.
