ABOUT DR. MONACO: Dr. Monaco spent her early career climbing the corporate ladder at Oracle before pursuing her true passion of neuropsychology. With both Master's and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology and a doctoral specialization in Neuropsychology, Dr. Monaco has had an expansive career in the field, including participating in research teams at Harvard Medical School and the Medical College of Pennsylvania, and clinical experiences at medical centers, state psychiatric hospitals, and community treatment facilities.
When she is not in the office evaluating brain-based processes, Dr. Monaco recharges her own brain with gardening, swimming, and hiking. She also loves anything to do with cats!
We use the latest neuropsychological assessment tools and brain-based research to help individuals identify how various cognitive, emotional, social, neurodevelopmental, and behavioral processes interact with one another and contribute to their overall functioning and well-being. We believe that in order to provide accurate diagnoses and focused, actionable interventions, it is essential to consider the whole person and the different environments in which they function.
Our goal is to provide each person we see with a better understanding of themselves as a spark that will allow them to move forward to where they want to be in their life.
Grateful for the knowledgeable and kind care from Dr. Catherine Monaco during our children’s neuropsychological examinations over the years. She is a tremendous gift to the people of New Hampshire! We traveled beyond our local community to meet with this rockstar provider. We wish her all the best in her new practice.
Dr Monaco is an exceptional neuropsychologist. She evaluated two of my children who were struggling academically. Dr Monaco went out of her way to connect with our family and especially my kids. She takes her time explaining the process, builds in breaks and runs on time. Her analysis of the testing is extremely thorough and she goes to great lengths to identify solutions and help you advocate for your child. I will be forever grateful for her insight and counsel and highly recommended her services.
Dr. Monaco and her team provided two very balanced and well written reports of my sons' learning, psychological and behavioral strengths and weaknesses. Her insight is keen and her experience in neuropsychological testing is unmatched. She described them both to a "t" and she effectively put forth extremely helpful treatment recommendations.
Dr. Monaco completed a neuropsychological evaluation of my 14 year old son. She met with us for an extended period of time to gather information about our concerns and also met with us for a feedback session following the evaluation to discuss her recommendations. She shared specific referral information in order to get help for his learning needs. She was personable and professional. We highly recommend working with Dr. Monaco.
I am so happy I took my son to Dr. Monaco for an evaluation! She is such a knowledgable and warm person and explained all the testing and the results so thoroughly. My son has always been thought of as a smart young boy and I am convinced that his difficulty would not have been identified with a less thorough evaluation. Dr. Monaco was willing to work with his school team to create accommodations that would support him appropriately at school. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Monaco takes a thoughtful, analytical approach to neuropsych evaluations. She uses trained professionals to administer the tests but that is fine with me - a doctor does not need to perform them, but simply interpret them. She interpreted the tests and found significant insights regarding my dhild’s ability to process information. The report was extremely thorough and well written, and her recommendations were quite good. I had earlier had an evaluation done for my child at ILD in Lexington, MA and this evaluation was so much more thorough and better. Would definitely recommend Dr. Monaco to anyone looking for a detailed, thoughtful evaluation. I found that she is very accessible, kind and insightful.
Dr. Monaco is exceptional at what she does. She evaluated both my children and provided insight which has been instrumental at increasing their self-confidence and performance at school. She is able to interpret the test results and explain them in a way your children can understand and relate to. I am extremely grateful for the extra time she takes, her clear communication during the process, and her depth of knowledge. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a thorough evaluation.
Excellent experience for my teenage daughter, which has truly changed her life for the better. We are eternally grateful !!!
