Anna V. Agranovich, Ph.D., ABPP, is a board-certified rehabilitation neuropsychologist at the Johns Hopkins outpatient brain injury rehabilitation program. She offers neuropsychological evaluations and interventions to adults with neurocognitive dysfunctions due to acquired brain injury, stroke and other complex medical conditions involving the central nervous system. Her holistic treatment approach focuses on community reintegration and active life participation, and incorporates evidence-based therapies along with positive psychology and the practice of mindfulness.
Dr. Agranovich is bilingual in English and Russian and has contributed to adaptations of cognitive tests for Russian speakers. She has written multiple book chapters and research papers on cultural differences in neuropsychological test performance. More recently, she has been exploring application of mindfulness-based treatment approaches in neurological rehabilitation.
