The Neuropsychology and Counseling Center
Dr. Marquez de la Plata is a clinical neuropsychologist and the Director of the Neuropsychology & Counseling Center in Dallas, Texas. He obtained his doctorate degree in clinical psychology from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in 2005, where he currently holds a faculty appointment within the Department of Psychiatry. He has over 30 peer-reviewed papers related to brain injury and dementia, and numerous presentations at national and international conferences to clinicians, researchers, and other stakeholders. His research interests lie in identifying markers of functional and cognitive recovery after acquired brain injuries, and evidence based practice-related implementation science. Along those lines, he is particularly interested in diversity issues in rehabilitation, and most importantly how to ameliorate outcome disparities through person-centered approaches. Dr. Marquez has years of experience leading interdisciplinary teams treating acquired brain injuries in a post-acute setting. Dr. Marquez’s clinical efforts are guided by an interest in developing evidence based rehabilitation treatment protocols, including interventions for increasing family involvement in goal-setting within a person-centered approach to community reintegration. Additionally, he previously directed both the predoctoral and postdoctoral training programs in neuropsychology at Pate Rehabilitation, where he spent six years as the director of rehabilitation research. In addition to being a member of the BI-ISIG, he is an active member in the International Networking Group of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine.
