Cheryl A. Gratton, PhD, is a licensed psychologist and clinical neuropsychologist in private practice with nearly 30 years of clinical experience in psychotherapy and assessment. Dr. Gratton primarily treats adult individuals and generally utilizes a cognitive approach. She believes that personal healing is facilitated in a warm and supportive environment, which provides the patient the safe atmosphere necessary for introspection and self-disclosure.

Dr. Gratton is a caring and compassionate listener who believes in a teamwork approach: while the psychologist is an expert on people in general, the patient is the expert regarding himself or herself. Emphasizing enhancing self-esteem and improving self-care, Dr. Gratton encourages each patient to treat himself or herself with respect.

Dr. Gratton is trained in psychological testing and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology. Neuropsychological assessment involves the evaluation of brain functioning to determine the effects of traumatic brain injury or stroke or the presence of dementia.

Flexible hours for scheduling are available as well as easy accessibility for emergency situations after hours. Dr. Gratton treats both men and women struggling with such issues as depression, anxiety, bereavement, stress, low self-esteem, and relationship problems. Psychotherapy services are frequently covered by health insurance.
