Dr. Elga Kinnear is a neuropsychologist located in Anacortes, WA. She provides individually-tailored services, based on her philosophy that no two people or two brains are the same. She works with patients that have thinking problems (e.g., memory, attention, concentration, difficulties planning, organization) to learn how the brain works and its effects on mind, body, and emotions. 

Patients typically present with various cognitive changes as a result of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), dementias, stroke, movement disorders (e.g., Parkinson's disease), MS, epilepsy, ADHD. One's life story and brain functions help understand the presenting problem and provide a diagnosis that guides treatment and recommendations. 

Dr. Kinnear earned an undergraduate degree in psychology and philosophy from Seattle Pacific University and a doctorate degree in clinical psychology, with an emphasis in neuropsychology, from George Fox University. Besides her clinical work, she has also worked as an adjunct professor at Seattle Pacific University doctoral program.

Dr. Kinnear has called Skagit Valley home since 2011, where she proudly serves the community. She enjoys her time off with family and friends listening to classical music, reading, skiing, tennis, fishing, boating, and photography.

What is a neuropsychologist?

Clinical neuropsychologists have advanced specialized knowledge and training in the applied science of brain diseases and brain-behavior relationships. They use this knowledge in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of patients who have neurologic, medical, developmental, or psychiatric conditions.



As part of providing our patients with highly indivdualized care, we frequently interact with other members of their care team, including primary care physicians, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, other therapists, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists.

Why are patients referred for a neuropsychological evaluation?


Neuropsychological evaluations are requested specifically to help your doctors and other professionals understand how the different areas of the brain are working. Testing is usually recommended when there are symptoms or complaints involving memory or thinking. This may be signaled by a change in memory, concentration, organization, reasoning, language, perception, coordination, or personality. The change may be due to a number of medical, neurological, psychological, or genetic causes (e.g., TBI, concussion, dementias (including Alzheimer's disease), tumor, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, anoxia, MS, encephalitis, toxic exposure).
