Dana Serino, Ph.D.

Dana Serino, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical neuropsychologist who provides treatment to children, adolescents, and adults. Dr. Serino’s therapeutic style is collaborative, warm, and solution-focused. In therapy, she and her patients determine which skills and techniques work best for them. She then supports their mastery of these skills – and their mood- so they continue to feel and think more positively. She believes that through this collaborative, strengths- and insight- oriented approach, individual growth, acceptance, and confidence can flourish.

Throughout her educational and professional career, Dr. Serino has specialized in neuropsychology and clinical psychology, and as such, in working with patients she can flexibly understand their emotional, cognitive and/or academic needs. She utilizes an integrative approach of cognitive, behavioral and psychodynamic techniques to help her patients reach their goals.
