Dr. Horwitz is a clinical neuropsychologist specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative conditions, as well as other neurologically – and psychiatrically-based conditions which impact cognitive functioning in adults.
She completed her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology as a Presidential Fellow at the University at Albany, where she began her specialized training in neuropsychology and developed a strong foundation as both a clinician and researcher under the scientist-practitioner model. Following completion of her internship and post-doctoral fellowship in Massachusetts, she moved to Colorado and has been employed with Memorial Hospital since that time.
She feels fortunate to work in a field that allows her to spend ample time with her patients in order to ensure that their concerns are heard and to obtain a comprehensive picture of the multitude of factors which may be causing difficulties in cognitive functioning and day-to-day life. In addition to diagnosing, Dr. Horwitz places a strong emphasis on developing detailed and personalized recommendations for optimizing each patient’s cognitive performance, physical and emotional well-being, and overall daily functioning.
In addition to her role as a clinician, she currently serves as Chair of the Education Committee for the National Academy of Neuropsychology and is an ad hoc reviewer for multiple peer-reviewed journals. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, yoga, travel, and volunteering for animal causes.
