Specialty: Lifespan Neuropsychological Assessment and Evaluation

After he earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology at Rice University, Dr. Olivier Barthelemy (“Dr. Ollie”) worked as a psychometrician at Baylor College of Medicine’s adult neuropsychology clinic, both in Houston, TX. He then earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Boston University, where he learned how to conduct psychological treatment, neuropsychological evaluation, and research in populations across the lifespan. After an internship in general mental health at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital in Bedford, MA, he conducted further research and neuropsychological assessment at Butler Hospital in Providence, RI. He is excited to join the Easterseals team, serve populations across the lifespan, pursue licensure in clinical psychology, and become a clinical neuropsychologist. In his free time, he enjoys biking, hiking, travel, video games, reading, and learning the piano.

Please introduce yourself to Dr. Ollie when you are in the Windsor office!
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Dr. Geetter—who so generously gave of his time and talent—volunteering for almost 50 years as the gratis Medical Director for our Easterseals. We remember him each day as we pass the tree outside of our Windsor offices planted many years ago to honor and thank him.
