Carolyn J. Noël, Psy.D.

Carolyn J. Noel, Psy.D. is licensed clinical psychologist with advanced training and specialization in clinical neuropsychology (the study of brain-behavior relationships).

Dr. Noel has expertise in a wide range of neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders, high functioning autism spectrum disorder, etc.) and neurocognitive conditions (e.g., stroke, brain injury, dementia, etc.), as well as mood and anxiety disorders, relationship/interpersonal difficulties, parenting challenges, among others.

Dr. Noel is particularly interested in working with individuals whose ability to compensate often masks the extent of their struggles (i.e., difficulties with social-emotional, interpersonal, cognitive/information processing and/or functional/day-to-day performance). This includes individuals whose ADHD/LD/ASD symptoms (as well as the frequently co-existing emotional dysregulation) are often missed or dismissed by others.

Dr. Noel’s goal is to educate and empower individuals in order to help them reach their true potential, find enjoyment in their lives, and eliminate unnecessary guilt, shame, and anxiety.
