Jason Krellman, PhD, ABPP-CN

Jason Krellman, PhD, ABPP (CN, RP) specializes in the evaluation of cognitive and emotional functioning in individuals with dementia, movement disorders, stroke, concussion and traumatic brain injury, and systemic medical illness. He also has expertise in psychotherapeutic and cognitive remediation interventions to treat cognitive, mood, and adjustment disorders following neurological injury or disease. He is board-certified in clinical neuropsychology (ABPP-CN) and rehabilitation psychology (ABPP-RP) by the American Board of Professional Psychology, and he is one of only approximately 20 clinical psychologists in the US and Canada certified in both specialties.

Dr. Krellman earned his doctorate in neuroscience and clinical neuropsychology from the City University of New York. He completed pre-doctoral clinical internship training in the neuropsychology of aging and dementia, epilepsy, and movement disorders in the Department of Neurology at North Shore University Hospital and the Department of Psychiatry at Zucker-Hillside Hospital (Northwell Health System), and he completed clinical postdoctoral training in the neuropsychology of brain injury in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center.

Dr. Krellman's doctoral research focused on cognitive, behavioral, and neuroanatomical phenotyping of inbred mouse strains. His clinically-focused research began with postdoctoral training in traumatic brain injury (TBI) rehabilitation research at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where his fellowship work focused on identifying participant characteristics associated with loss-to-followup in longitudinal outcome studies of individuals with moderate to severe TBI and the development of group interventions to treat executive dysfunction following TBI. His latest research has focused on the development of interventions to treat long-term sequelae of moderate to severe TBI, such as emotional dysregulation and fatigue, as well as the incidence and predictors of neurological and psychiatric disorders following moderate to severe TBI. He has authored book chapters and peer-reviewed articles in the area of TBI rehabilitation.
