Dr. Bonnie Floyd

(Ph.D.)

About Me

Hello! My name is Dr. Bonnie Floyd. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist, with a specialization in health psychology. My expertise is assisting individuals who are diagnosed with chronic illness to live more fulfilling lives.

I completed my Ph.D. in Clinical Health Psychology, through a program jointly offered by Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Yeshiva University, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. I have nearly twenty years of clinical experience, working in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

I've had experience in psychological pain management, providing both biofeedback and psychotherapy. For the past fifteen years, I've specialized in working with geriatric patients; I've provided comprehensive neuropsychological assessments, to diagnose forms of dementia. More recently, I've been providing supportive psychotherapy sessions for residents in nursing homes.

Last November, I published Remarkable Journey: My Dual Perspectives as Doctor and Patient. Having specialized in coping with chronic illness during my doctoral training, I am now managing chronic conditions of my own. This offers a unique perspective for those who are struggling to adapt to chronic conditions.

My theoretical orientation is cognitive-behavioral in nature: I assist clients with the identification of maladaptive patterns of thinking, as well as provide training with the substitution of more adaptive thoughts. Similarly, I assist clients with recognizing when behaviors are no longer useful for their current situations; I provide help with forming new, more adaptive behaviors. I have a longstanding interest in mood disorders, especially major depressive disorder.

I would be honored to have the opportunity to work together on your current concerns. I commend individuals for the courage to reach out for professional assistance when necessary.

Dr Floyd is an excellent therapist. I've tried a couple previously but she was far and away the most responsive, engaged and understanding. She is fully invested during the sessions and provides sound advice and wise counsel. It has been a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend.
