Additional training in previous placements has included a doctoral practicum at the State of California Department of Rehabilitation, where she gained extensive training and experience administering and scoring cognitive, intellectual, academic, and career assessments for a diverse population of individuals with physical, psychological, and cognitive disabilities. She also pursued a practicum placement in the Neuropsychology Department at Highland Hospital in Oakland where the primary aspect of her work was the integration of quantitative and qualitative data to inform diagnoses, treatment, and prognosis of individuals from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds suffering from a myriad of conditions (i.e. TBI, epilepsy, dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease). Dr. Nehring completed her postdoctoral fellowship at Optimal Minds Neuropsychology where she evaluated and treated adults and children with various types of nervous system disorders, learning disorders, and sensory processing disorders. Dr. Nehring joined Brain Builders Neurotherapy in 2017 and with that, embarked in an intensive and specialized training to develop her knowledge and expertise in neurofeedback. Since then, she has been working diligently in the implementation of this highly regarded intervention on adults and children and her extensive knowledge of brain anatomy and brain-behavior relationship aids her in tailoring neurofeedback treatment to the unique needs of her patients.
