Maria Paasivirta PhD
I obtained my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Hofstra University and my Master’s degree in Psychology from NYU. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at UCLA Medical Center and a predoctoral internship at Pacific Clinics.
I offer psychological testing and consultation related to a variety of assessment questions. These include areas such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum, learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, behavioral, giftedness, executive functioning, memory, and Selective Mutism.
I also specialize in assessments for Twice-Exceptional (2e) children and youth, i.e., individuals who are gifted while also having an area of weakness (e.g., Dyslexia, attentional problems, social challenges, anxiety).
