Daisy Pascualvaca Ph.D. and Associates

Neuropsychology Center We are a neuropsychological center in Washington, DC. We value working as a team and include the family in the entire process.

We believe that understanding strengths and challenges is the key to personal growth. We facilitate this process by conducting evaluations that are interactive and clear, and providing feedback in real time. We are also committed to teaching Mindfulness as a life skill for centering, self-awareness, and balance.

Operating as usual

Dear families, it has been several days since most of us have been home, trying to balance kids, work, and anxiety about the future. Even in these uncertain times, we are not very far away. Please let us know how we can help. We can talk to (y)our little ones, to you parents, or simply have a virtual cup of coffee together. Even when our doors are closed, we are always here for you. Dr. Daisy and team


Wishing you a fabulous 2020!!!!


We are so grateful for all the brave families that come to our office very day, ready to learn, grow, and teach us unforgettable lessons. Hope you have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!!
