Dr. Mike is a pediatric neuropsychologist and New York State licensed psychologist based on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Prior to opening his private practice in 2016, Dr. Mike spent three and a half years as a staff neuropsychologist at the Child Mind Institute in Manhattan where he was also actively involved in the supervision of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows as well as the creation of an early childhood assessment clinic for toddlers and preschool-aged children. In addition to Dr. Mike’s expertise in neuropsychological assessment, his background and training in cognitive-behavioral (CBT), family systems, and psychodynamic/attachment theories enrich his understanding of how and why a child may be struggling and the best ways to intervene.

He then earned his PhD at the University of Connecticut, fulfilled internship training at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, and completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at Children’ s National Medical Center in Washington, DC.
