Stephen Wolfson is the founder of Neurocog Pty Ltd. He grew up in New York City and moved to Los Angeles for his undergraduate degree from USC in 1987. Stephen enjoyed careers in entertainment, computing, and law before settling on clinical psychology which he has been practicing for over two decades. Stephen has been a licensed marriage and family therapist in California since 1999, a registered clinical psychologist since New Zealand in 2010 and in Australia since 2016. He earned his PhD in computational cognitive neuroscience at the University of Auckland, New Zealand this year. His research covered the application of advanced mathematical analysis of electroencephalographic signals to diagnose autism.
Steve’s clinical training, education and experience has been broad and intensive. Starting with analytical training at the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Institute after completion of his first clinical master’s degree from Antioch University he worked initially with young children and adults in three settings. This was followed by work for the Los Angeles Department of Probation with incarcerated adolescent males. While maintaining a continuous private practice Stephen established programs in various clinical settings with a variety of populations, such as the indigent and those suffering from compulsivity and dependency. After completion of his second clinical master’s he worked in other forensic settings including the New Zealand Department of Corrections and with California and Federal prosecutors and courts supervising offenders there. Stephen continues to research neuroscience and clinical psychology, write and develop clinical programs and tools, most notably the Neurocog System, it’s affiliated interactive application Neurocog and an upcoming practice management network called the Neurocog Network.
