Here's a quick introduction to Dr. Carla Andrews, Licensed Clinical Psychologist
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist specializing in teens, young adults, women's wellness and parenting support. I keep a small private practice, ensuring a high level of attention to each client.
Formerly, I was an Attending Psychologist & Assistant Professor in Pediatrics at Montefiore Medical Center.
I completed my Postdoc Fellowship at Yale University's Child Study Center.
I earned my PsyD in Clinical Psychology from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, my MA in Developmental Psychology from Columbia University, and my BA in Psychology from New York University
A thorough assessment is key to identifying strengths & challenges.
Psychological testing to clarify diagnoses like ADHD, Autism, or Learning Disorders may include:
-Attention/ Executive Functioning
Using a collaborative approach, Dr. Andrews treats various issues, primarily via Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), including:
-Oppositional defiant behavior
Dr. Andrews provides consultation re: pediatric psychology issues on a case-by-case basis, or in a seminar series.
Pediatric offices, schools, and other organizations can request uniquely tailored topics, such as:
-Managing Behavioral Crises
-Trauma Informed Care
-Screening for Mood Disorders
Dr. Andrews provides out-of-network mental health benefits and works closely with clients to obtain insurance reimbursement as applicable.
Therapy sessions (45 minutes) are $250/ hour, payable by cash, check or credit card.
Until I complete an initial evaluation and we start to work together, I will not have a clear picture of your specific diagnosis, issues and needs. I typically see clients for 2 - 4 sessions per month (i.e., 25 – 50 sessions per year), for a total cost of $500 - $1,000 per month (i.e., $6,250 - $12,500 per year.) In some cases, a client’s presenting issues may be less or more complicated, so we may need fewer or additional sessions during the time covered by this estimate.
