Meet the Brains behind the Center for NeuroPotential
Amy Palmer, Psy.D, BCN
Deb Del Vecchio-Scully, LPC, DCMHS
In 2008, Deb applied for a counseling job at a Neurology Medical Practice and was interviewed by their senior Neuropsychologist, Amy. Deb got the job, and the rest is history. They instantly connected and began a professional relationship, personal friendship, and commitment to discovering the potential in every client they work with. Amy is a self-proclaimed “brain geek” while Deb is a mindfulness and trauma expert. Together, they are the brains behind the Center for Neuropotential.
After founding the Center for NeuroPotential, Amy and Deb quickly realized that their services were in high demand. They were excited to add Maureen Tranquilli, LCSW to provide counseling services and Gabrielle Gershoni, B.A. as a neurofeedback technician.
Meet Amy Palmer, Psy.D, BCN
People come to me because they feel that somehow their brain just isn’t working the way it’s supposed to. I love putting the pieces together for clients to help them see the bigger picture. Knowledge is power, and with that knowledge we can collaborate to form an individualized treatment plan. A cornerstone for helping others reach their potential is through the use of neurofeedback, and I am proud to be a board-certified neurofeedback provider.
When not in the office, you likely will find me out for a run, reading a book, or searching on Pinterest for the next recipe I want to try. My two little girls keep me laughing every day, and help me appreciate the silliness in life.
Meet Deb Del Vecchio-Scully, LPC, NCC, DCMHS
I love listening to people’s stories and supporting the healing process of reassembling pieces that no longer fit well. I consider myself a connection specialist helping others discover a mindful presence in the here and now. I hold Diplomat status as a Trauma specialist and was very involved in the Newtown community following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012.
In my free-time, you are likely to find me practicing yoga, out walking, playing with my nieces and nephews or reading an interesting book. I devote myself to being centered and finding time to laugh, to breathe, to move and for quiet reflection to foster brain health and well-being.
Meet Maureen Tranquilli, LCSW
Taking the time to learn about and listen to others is something I have always enjoyed doing. Understanding that struggles, difficulties and conflict can cause life to feel imbalanced. I find it very rewarding to help people to see their strengths, to set realistic goals and reach them through the therapeutic process. I believe that I can help bring more calm, well-being and balance back into the lives of those I work with.
When not at the center or at the high school where I work during the day, you will most likely find me at one of many fields watching my sons play the sports that they love. I also enjoy kickboxing, watching movies and walking my dog.
