Dr. Shoshana Dayanim


About me

I started off my journey as a dancer and actor and earned my BFA in theater from New York University, Tisch School for the Arts. After touring in a show that dealt with childhood sexual abuse and receiving training to be able to help children who disclosed abuse to us, I realized my pull to helping others as a therapist. I returned to school and earned a MA degree in Creative Arts Therapy with a specialty in Dance/Movement Therapy, and practiced as a psychotherapist for several years for children suffering from abuse, depression, behavior disorders and other areas. I also worked with adults and elders with depression and more severe psychiatric disorders. As I was interested in furthering my skills, I returned to school once again to earn my Ph.D. in Applied Developmental Psychology from Fordham University followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at Emory University . I have worked in learning and behavioral assessments for children and adolescents and as a researcher with a focus on the impact of media and technology on children's learning and behavior. Over the years, I have also served as an expert in parenting in various capacities and am a certified clinical anxiety treatment professional. In addition to serving as a therapist, I have been working for almost 15 yeas as a professor in Psychology teaching and working with students of all ages from undergraduate through doctoral.
My diverse background allows for a unique approach in counseling and providing therapeutic services. I see each of my clients as unique individuals, and tailor my approach in working with each according to what works best for them.
