Psychology Permit: NJ TP # 233-069
Dr. Riegler received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Neuropsychology from the Pennsylvania State University. She completed her doctoral internship in the neuropsychology track at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System. She joined Princeton Neuropsychology and the Sports Concussion Center of New Jersey in August 2023 as a post-doctoral fellow in neuropsychology.
Dr. Riegler has experience conducting neuropsychological evaluations across a broad range of referral questions, including traumatic brain injuries, memory disorders and dementias, developmental disorders, stroke, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, complex neuropsychiatric conditions, and movement disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis). She also has experience in Health Psychology implementing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain (CBT-CP), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Dr. Riegler provides cognitive skills training, including individual and group interventions aimed at improving strategies and skills related to memory, attention, organization, and planning.
Dr. Riegler is a member of numerous national and international professional organizations including the International Neuropsychological Society (INS), National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN), Sports Neuropsychology Society (SNS), American Psychological Association (APA) Division 40 Society for Clinical Neuropsychology (SCN), Engagement, Resources, and Learning for Young Traumatic Brain Injury Researchers (EaRLY TBI), New Jersey Psychological Association, and the Society for Behavioral Sleep Medicine. She is active in several leadership and committee roles such as in the APA/SCN Women in Neuropsychology (WIN), the NAN Professional Affairs and Information Committee (PAIC), the NAN Social Media Committee, and the Media Committee of SNS.
Dr. Riegler has published original research in journals such as Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, Child Neuropsychology, Translational Issues in Psychological Science, Journal of Athletic Training, Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society, and Neuropsychology. Her research falls under the umbrella of translational research focusing on modifiable factors that are related to outcomes in several neuropsychological populations. These modifiable factors include depression, fatigue, and sleep difficulties in Multiple Sclerosis as well as athletes with sport-related concussion. Dr. Riegler believes that this type of research is in the service of moving clinical neuropsychology toward a model of precision behavioral interventions that can improve quality of life in the populations that we serve.
