This website is created and maintained by a multidisciplinary group of physicians, advanced practice partners and staff dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of functional neurological disorders.

Non-epileptic seizures (also known as psychogenic non-epileptic seizures) are the main focus of our current program. Our long term goal is to provide treatment for the broad range of functional neurological disorders. Some of these are listed below.

  • Functional movement disorders

  • Functional eye movement disorders
  • Functional speech disorders
  • And others (see resources tab for complete list)

 

We have a multidisciplinary approach starting with appointments with providers in Neurology and Psychiatry, specializing in the treatment of FND. Consider this a starting place to explore what we can provide and what can be learned.

Online review of Dr. Strom, 04/13/2021

Dr. Strom is a knowledgeable and good advocate for epileptic care and I feel a personal relationship with her because of her care, concern and actions taken to help me in my continual journey through seizure disorder. My only area of disgruntlement is dealing with a large hospital and not getting immediate response from doctors, having to schedule so far in advance.

First time a doctor in Colorado has treated me with respect. Still am lost and overwhelmed but she had a brain!!!!

Online review of Dr. Strom, 10/12/2020

She listened to me, asked a lot about my seizures. Very professional! She seemed to really care about what I’m going through! She told me they know very little about my kind of seizures, which I thought I could just take a pill to make them go away!

She is the most well prepared provider. That She’s the top two well best providers I’ve ever been to ever in my life. She, she knows what she’s talking about. She has looked over at all the sheets, and all of my past stuff, and she just was so prepared, and on the ball, and Brilliant, I would say she’s brilliant.

She is very personable and kind, easy to talk to.

Online review of Rajee Krause (NP), 6/14/2019

Dr. Strom and manager Meagan Watson took the time to go over what FND/PNES really is and made me feel better after being treated so horrendously at my hometown hospitals. I have been repeatedly told that I was “faking” and “it is all your choice to be having these fake seizures” many times over the last 3 months. Dr. Strom explained how sadly this is extremely common and how she has podcasts to help educate and end the misunderstanding and stigma! Dr. Strom assured me that what is happening to me is very “real” and can be overcome with the proper treatment. This gives me great hope! Thank you so very much Dr Strom and all of the Neuroscience team!!!

The Non-Epileptic Seizure clinic is amazing. I have hope for the first time in awhile.

Neurology staff did wonderful job with the 6 week NES Therapy group. I wish that my Husband’s job was not in transition, otherwise I would have been part of the 12 week therapy starting soon.
