-Bringing hope back into your life-
Here to help you with support and treatment for brain and cognitive changes. There is something you can do for a changing brain!
We specialize in screening for and identifying brain and cognitive changes in a comfortable setting. You may be asking yourself “now what?” when you first begin to notice signs and symptoms of brain changes or when you receive a diagnosis from your primary provider and need a place to turn for service and support. Our team will help you identify why your brain may be changing and provide insight into what you can do to support your brain health. They will also join you and your loved ones on a journey, living with dementia, to help you maintain independence and function in your home and community.
Identifying the “why” behind the symptoms you are experiencing can be challenging because the same symptoms can mean different things.

Screening for services
Fill out an inquiry checklist to screen for service needs. Our team will review your checklist and contact you with possibilities for support and services you may benefit from based on your responses.
Our team is passionate about brain health. We know education is key, the more you know about your brain health, the better you will be at providing it the proper care. After all, your brain drives your entire body, why not take care of it!
We know that many people struggle with brain dysfunction and too often they do not seek evaluation or treatment due to one reason or another. Our providers have heard people say, “there is no point in assessment, since nothing can be done”. This is simply not true. There is a plan to help maximize brain function for all; both cognitively intact and those living with a diagnosed dementia.
We strive to provide a comfortable setting where we can provide complementary services to each clients existing medical care. We answer the question “now what?” after you begin noticing changes or receive a diagnosis from your primary provider.
We seek to detect early cognitive impairment and following this detection we walk with you to develop a treatment plan to maximize your brain health.
We seek to be an extension of your primary care provider and will collaborate directly with them. Our goal is to be an addition to your current care by evaluating your brain health, identifying modifiable risk factors, and determining the extent to which your brain health is impacting your day-to-day living. We provide preventative, restorative and adaptive treatment following the evaluation process.
Our mission is to improve brain health of all, you do not have to sit and wonder what is happening, we can give you details and set you on a path for success!

OUR Clients WORDS
“I was in the clinic 1-2 times a week. I found my time at Brain Intercept beneficial, informative, and my concerns we taken seriously.”
“Thank you Brain Intercept and Sarah! When our mom was diagnosed with dementia my siblings and I tried our best to care for her. We didn’t know what we didn’t know. Sarah helped us with so many of the emotional challenges we had and gave us the best advice and right words to help our mom understand what was happening to her. Sarah has helped with each stage of dementia as it’s been progressing. Each stage needs new tools and Sarah is giving us those tools. Not only is this hard for our mom it’s been hard for my siblings and I and Sarah has taken some of the weight off of us. Thank you so much Brain Intercept and especially Sarah!”
“Brain Intercept has a super friendly staff with great flexibility. I was surprised, but grateful, to learn all the reversible factors leading to dementia. I would recommend their clinic to anyone questioning their general brain health, not just Alzheimer’s!”
“I am very happy I came to see Dr. Hart and Tiffany. They both have helped me so much. I have improved so much with my mind and cognitively.”
“I would give Brain Intercept Therapy 10 out of 5 stars when it comes to the quality of improving my brain health!”
“Brain Intercept has been a life saver for me!! I believe everyone there truly cares about my well being. They have all been helping, kind, encouraging, and I am so truly blessed! They go above and beyond to care for me!”
“While at Brain Intercept, the team listened with open ears and took my concerns seriously. After my visit, I was given beneficial and informative handouts to keep myself motivated and keep my brain healthy!”
“I am so grateful for the work Sarah has done with my mother! Because of Sarah’s advice and support, my mom can stay in her home where she wants to be. It is wonderful to see my mother regain some of her independence with the tools Sarah is teaching her. Sarah has also helped our family understand the changes that can occur in aging brains, and what we can do to support our mother. Sarah is kind, knowledgeable, and caring, and really listens to clients’ concerns. I highly recommend Sarah and the team at Brain Intercept!”
MEET OUR SPECIALTY PROVIDERS
Sarah Viola, OTR/L
Sarah supports clients in reaching their fullest potential by holistically addressing all aspects of a person: physical, mental, and social well-being. The balance between these three aspects is necessary to maintain quality of life.
To begin therapy, a client participates in a functional cognitive assessment. Then the client, family, and therapist work together to develop a hierarchy of needs related to areas of dysfunction. Treatment sessions include problem-solving and brainstorming with the client and support system to help identify root causes of difficulties and implement successful strategies to remediate, adapt or modify for the areas of dysfunction.
Tiffany Hoeft, MS/CCC-SLP
Tiffany looks at memory and attention in a different way to better meet the needs of our clients. For 20 years, Tiffany has specialized in working with people and their brain health. She has found that individuals often develop bad habits that could lead them from mild cognitive impairment to dementia. Identifying and addressing these habits can be important in maximizing cognitive function.
Tiffany believes early intervention is the key! Through evidence-based strategies and lifestyle changes, speech therapy can work with you to build what’s called “cognitive reserve” and strengthen the pathways in your brain through retraining, repetition, and compensation.
The goal of occupational therapy at Brain Intercept is to create quality of life as well as bring meaning and fulfillment to day-to-day living. It is possible to LIVE, while living with dementia.
The goal of cognitive rehabilitation at Brain Intercept is to create a positive shift toward keeping your brain healthy so your cognitive lifespan can match your overall lifespan.
