Dr. Konopka is a clinical neuroscientist and psychologist with expertise in human psychophysiology/pharmacology and utilization of his Brain to Behavior Approach to diagnosis and treatment.
He interprets each patient’s brain functionality by considering their genetic vulnerabilities, developmental milestones, sensory processing, and neurobehavioral presentation as substrates for developing personalized treatment approaches. Diagnostically, in addition to the standard clinical evaluation, Dr.Konopka relies on qEEG, physiological data from evoked potentials, emotional activation studies, and emotional and cognitive neurobehavioral testing. Therapeutically, Dr. Konopka uses a behavioral and physiological approach that incorporates traditional individual and family therapy.
Dr. Konopka’s background allows him to effectively use biofeedback, neurofeedback, and other neuro-modulating tools such as transcranial stimulation. In addition, he also employs therapeutics based on cognitive behavioral methods, family systems, psychodynamic theories, art, music, creative writing, and other expressive modalities. Dr. Konopka strives to help each patient achieve the physiological, cognitive, and emotional flexibility that allows for symptom management and, ultimately, brain remodeling so that the patient can face life’s challenges and optimize their unique potential.
