Katie Day, LMSW

Mental Health Clinician 

“The best part about working with the INPS team is the holistic perspective and practice for the entire treatment process.”

 

Licensed Master Social Worker, Katie Day, works with patients in the INPS Neurofeedback clinic where she helps them increase connectivity and regulate their brains. With Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Social Work from the University of Arkansas, Katie is working toward her BCIA certification in Neurofeedback as well as her LCSW.

 

In addition to working the NBC clinic, Katie also provides individual, client-led psychotherapy. She has experience working with children and families, adults with substance abuse, and adults experiencing anxiety or depression, as well as leading group therapy. Katie shared with us what she has gained from working at Integrated Psychological Services and what she tries to help her clients learn about the brain-body-behavior connection.

“INPS works to identify and understand the root cause for the behaviors and symptoms that our clients experience. By looking at the data from QEEG’s, testing, and self-reports, our doctors create individualized, effective treatment plans that can really help our patients. On top of that, this team comes together to communicate concerns and works together to provide the best care possible for our patients which ensures our patients get contiguity of care. 

 

I also appreciate working with doctors who are experts in the Neuropsychology field and getting to learn from their experience and knowledge. At INPS, I have been able to work with individuals on the autism spectrum, which is a big interest of mine. The longer I work at INPS, the more I want our patients to understand that everyone's brain is different. By understanding how your brain connects and responds to stimuli, we gain a better understanding of the behavior that is manifesting. Again, it’s about getting to the root cause.”

Abby Bolen, B.A., B.A., BCN

Registered Neuropsychological Technician

“I love how close-knit the INPS team is. I really appreciate the positive work environment and all the support I receive from my fellow coworkers. It feels like we are a great team which is extremely important to me as a professional.” 

 

A senior staffer at Integrated Neuropsychological Services, Abby Poteet has supported our patients on multiple levels for many years. One of our board-certified Neuropsychological Testing Technicians, Abby also works with patients to administer the QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram.  Currently working toward her Masters in Mental Health Counseling/School Counseling at the University of Arkansas, Abby also holds a B.A. and a B.S. in Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience, and she will soon be a registered play therapist as well.

With clinical experience and a background in working with all ages, Abby has been a devout researcher since her undergrad years.  When we asked Abby about working with the IBH family, she told us this.

 

“IBH allows me to combine my passions by working with clients in the clinic while also being able to help with research projects that really interest me. My goal is to be a counselor and to become a versatile mental health professional. The unique practice model of IBH allows me to work closely with highly trained mental health professionals so that I can learn how to provide services based on scientific evidence and continue exploring my research interests.

 

I am becoming more and more passionate about integrating neuroscience into my future counseling career, and I want to encourage my patients/clients to understand that while our life experiences significantly impact our brain and can change the ways we respond to certain events or stimuli, it doesn't always mean that these changes or behaviors are permanent. As we grow and change physically over time, so does our brain. The neuroplasticity of our brain helps us to heal; neurofeedback and counseling can wonderfully support individuals through these times and encourage progression.”

Lindsey Schaefer, B.A

Registered Neuropsychological Technician

“To better understand our brain is to better understand ourselves.”

 

An established team member at Integrated Neuropsychological Services, Lindsey Schaefer assists with a variety of roles at INPS including case and clinic coordination as well as administering and scoring tests. A registered Neuropsychological Testing Technician, Lindsey earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Arkansas with an emphasis on behavioral neuroscience and a minor in social work.  Lindsey is also a member of Psi Chi, the International Psychology Honor Society among others, and she has worked and volunteered extensively with adults and children in residential treatment. We asked Lindsey about her goals and what she likes best about working with the INPS team.

 

“I believe that it is extremely important to contribute practice-based research to improve the quality of mental healthcare across the board.  Everything from perception and learning/memory to attention and moral decision-making all happens in the brain. As for my personal goals, I certainly want to excel in this field, but I’m not sure exactly where that will lead. Although I had originally planned to pursue social work, working here has me leaning more toward the data-driven side of things.  The bottom-line is I really love learning about the brain, and because INPS offers such a wide variety of clinical services, I feel like I am always learning something from this team.”
