I feel great passion for the work that I do and I have a constant drive to improve my skills. My work is holistic, taking into account the mind, body and relationship and so I work from a bio psychosocial model. My clients have often had numerous treatment failures.  They feel frustrated and sometimes hopeless. I work hard, do my research and mentor when needed to get to answers that can help my clients to feel some relief. I have worked to become efficient and effective in my work, desiring to save my clients time and money where possible.  It’s a joy to see improvement and hope in the eyes of my clients. I love my work.

Her primary specialization is in the interpretation of brain function using traditional raw waveform analysis, normative databases, and quantitative algorithms. She is International QEEG Certification Board (IQCB) Board Certified in QEEG at the Diplomate level. She has served as an expert witness in forensic cases involving the interpretation of brain maps concerning traumatic brain injuries and mental health status. She provides consultations and continuing education to clinicians, including mentoring for IQCB board certification.

A portion of her laboratory rounds included in-vivo electrophysiological recordings from the pre-motor cortex of primates and in vitro electrophysiological recordings from rodent hippocampal slices. Her dissertation and subsequent postdoctoral work at the California Institute of Technology and the University of Antwerp, Belgium concerned the use of machine learning and mathematical algorithms to predict the electrochemical signaling behavior of neurons. 

Dr. West’s training in EEG/QEEG includes a six-month neurology residency focused on EEG through the Neurological Association of South Africa in collaboration with the University of Cape Town. She has been a participant in the bi-monthly QEEG grand rounds with world expert, Jay Gunkelman, since 2016.
