NYS Licensed Psychologist and Certified School Psychologist

Susan Hall is a NYS licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist.  She specializes in providing individual services to children, adolescents, and adults using a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and meditative techniques.  Her training and experience in neuropsychology informs her treatment approach by emphasizing the impact of an individual’s neurocognitive profile on social/emotional and behavioral functioning.  Dr. Hall spent 12 years working as a school psychologist in special education preschools, where her duties included child-centered therapy, teacher consultation and behavioral interventions, parent training and counseling, and psychological evaluations.  She also has extensive experience in various clinical settings providing therapy and comprehensive neuropsychological assessment to a wide range of children and adults.

More recently, Dr. Hall has developed a sub-specialty in treatment of seniors and issues associated with aging, including grief and loss, adjustment to functional decline, and social isolation.  Due to her background in neuropsychology, she has a unique understanding of cognitive problems predominant in the geriatric population and can provide patients and their families with strategies targeting related stress.

Susan earned her BA from Queens College (Summa Cum Laude) and her doctorate from CUNY Graduate Center in the subprogram of Clinical Neuropsychology.  She is also trained in the Orton-Gillingham method of reading instruction, which is widely used as a remediation tool for dyslexic students.
