Dr. Gojmerac’s clinical and research interests are in aging, cognition, and mental health. Her primary areas of practice include neurocognitive assessment and cognitive rehabilitation of adults and seniors. She has experience with a broad range of clients, including those with neurological conditions (e.g., acquired brain injury, dementia, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis) and those with psychiatric conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia).
Current research projects include a randomized control trial to investigate the effectiveness of a multi-factorial intervention program in seniors experiencing cognitive impairment, and a program evaluation of a memory intervention program for adults with mood disorders.
