Ilene Naomi Rusk, PhD
Brain Health Consultant
Resilience & Trauma Coaching
Co-Director, Healthy Brain Program
Dr Ilene Naomi Rusk began her career in behavioral neuroscience and psychopharmacology. She completed her post-doctoral fellowship positions in the Neuropsychology of psychiatric illness and neurodegenerative disease at the University of Birmingham in Great Britain and at the Royal Ottawa Hospital in Canada. She worked for the British government assessing children with multiple neurologic and emotional disabilities. She was awarded the Parkinson’s Disease Fellowship position in Canada looking at mental changes in movement disorders and dementias. Her balanced view of clinical work as Co-Director of the Brain and Behavior Clinic in Boulder includes her emphasis on positive neuroplasticity, building resilience in the nervous system and intergenerational trauma. She is trained in various trauma resolution techniques and in cognitive rehabilitation. Dr Rusk blends these factors into her resilience-based work and is guided by a functional medicine approach which looks for the root causes of cognitive decline and emotional trauma. Dr. Rusk’s work focuses on blending personalized integrative healthcare and psychological wellness within a scientist-practitioner model. She has woven spirituality, mystical texts and mindfulness into her practice for over 35 years.
