ABOUT

Dr. Peryl Agishtein is a NYS licensed clinical psychologist. She holds a Ph.D. from the CUNY Graduate Center in clinical psychology with a specialization in neuropsychology. After earning her degree, Dr. Agishtein completed postdoctoral fellowships at Columbia/ NY Presbyterian Hospital and at CAPs, one of the largest clinics in the world that caters to Orthodox Jews. She went on to act as the founding director of a testing department within CAPs, as well as the founding director of a new branch of an anxiety center. After moving to Long Island 5 years ago, Dr. Agishtein worked in St. Charles Hospital as a pediatric neuropsychologist in the inpatient units and outpatient clinic. For the past 6 years, Dr. Agishtein also maintained Lifespan Neuropsychology as a private practice based in NY, where she provides private neuropsychological evaluations and therapy as well as didactics and supervision for neuropsychologists who aspire to provide culturally sensitive and useful assessment within the Orthodox Jewish community.

Dr. Agishtein's specialties and training are in the areas of both neuropsychological assessment and clinical therapy, which allows her to integrate dual perspectives into her therapy as well as her evaluation services. One of Dr. Agishtein’s main clinical specialties is providing couples therapy using the model of Emotion Focused Couples Therapy. This collaborative, goal-oriented treatment is evidence-based (with statistics showing efficacy rates of 80% or more) and is guided by attachment theory, which is Dr. Agishtein’s research expertise. Dr. Agishtein’s second clinical specialty is using cognitive behavioral therapy and related models (including exposure/ response prevention, Habit Reversal Training, and mindfulness techniques) to treat depression, anxiety, and anxiety-related disorders (such as phobias, OCD, tics, and panic attacks). Finally, Dr. Agishtein is able to utilize her neuropsychological expertise to provide a unique consultation service in cases where children do not need a full neuropsychological evaluation but do need help with diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

Dr. Agishtein is currently practicing remotely via Zoom. She sees adults and adolescents who need counseling to treat depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. She also provides diagnostic and treatment guidance consultations for children. See Dr. Agishtein's website for more information: www.lifespanneuropsych.com.
