Dr. Elisa Wetzler, Psy.D.
The Wright Psychology and Learning Center welcomed Dr. Elisa Wetzler to the practice in 2017. Dr. Wetzler is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in the evaluation of children, adolescents, and college-aged young adults. Prior to coming to the Wright Psychology and Learning Center, Dr. Wetzler practiced for 10 years completing child, adolescent, and young adult neuropsychological assessments at Edelson & Associates in Louisville, KY. Dr. Wetzler’s primary clinical interests include the evaluation of cognitive, learning, developmental, and emotional/behavioral disorders, such as Dyslexia, Math Disorders (Dyscalculia), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and depression/anxiety. She also enjoys working with children/adolescents who are Gifted/Talented as well those who are considered to be “Twice Exceptional” (children who are both gifted and learning disabled). Dr. Wetzler has extensive training in neuropsychological assessment. Neuropsychological testing is a comprehensive assessment of abilities such as memory, language skills, visual processing, and executive skills (organization, planning, inhibition, attention) as they relate to brain structure and brain development. The testing also evaluates general intellect, achievement skills (reading, math, etc.), social skills and emotional functioning. Dr. Wetzler believes strongly in the importance of understanding each child’s, adolescent’s, and young adult’s strengths and weaknesses in order to provide customized recommendations and help each one reach his/her potential.
