AND EMPIRICALLY SUPPORTED TREATMENT
Welcome to my practice website. I would be honored to support you during this time. Please note that due to COVID-19, all services are currently being conducted remotely. Please contact me to discuss how I may best help you and your family. If you are seeking an assessment, I can provide a review of records and consultation, and we can discuss the pros and cons of conducting an assessment right now via telehealth verses waiting until we can conduct one in-person. I am licensed in New York state, and I also have temporary licensure in Maine and New Hampshire.
Cassady Casey, Psy.D.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist with extensive experience working with children, tweens, adolescents, and young adults. My expertise in both therapy and assessment provides me with a unique perspective on underlying reasons for behaviors and appropriate interventions.
I have worked and trained at top hospitals and organizations in the New York metropolitan area including the following:
The Child Mind Institute
Lenox Hill Hospital-Northwell Health
New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center
Zucker Hillside Hospital-Northwell Health
Areas of Specialization
Cognitive Behavior Therapy
ADHD and Executive Functioning Challenges
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Neuropsychological Evaluations & Empirically Supported Treatment
Through research-based standardized assessments, I evaluate preschoolers through young adults. I work to pin point each individual's strengths and needs, and empower families with clarity and direction for therapeutic and educational planning. In collaboration with parents, schools, and related providers, I help identify appropriate school-based supports, including classroom placement, services,
and accommodations, while drawing upon my experience in educational advocacy.
I conduct comprehensive assessments of learning disabilities, autism, language disorders, nonverbal learning disorder, ADHD and executive functioning weaknesses, emotional and behavioral difficulties, and giftedness. Assessments may also be conducted to determine your child’s learning profile or if a child or adult qualifies for standardized test accommodations (e.g., SAT, ACT, LSAT, MCAT, ISEE, TACHS, SSAT). Neuropsychological and psychoeducational evaluations are tailored to your child to clarify his or her abilities. Assessments of Autism involve standardized measures and parent interviews that examine social communication skills and related behaviors. Following the evaluation, personalized recommendations for learning plans and therapeutic supports are provided in a collaboratively oriented feedback session
and user friendly reports.
I am proud to also offer Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) as well as SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions).
CBT is a psychological treatment proven to be effective through scientific research. It involves teaching skills that change thinking and behavior, leading to enduring improvements in mood, functioning, and quality of life. Through CBT, I teach children, adolescents, and young adults tangible skills to improve their daily lives and manage the stresses of growing up. The SPACE Program is a parent-based intervention developed at the Yale Child Study Center that has been proven effective in treating childhood anxiety. Additionally, I provide
executive functioning support using evidenced-based interventions.
My experience conducting psychotherapy spans 10 years, and my clinical training has included multiday workshops at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Therapy. As part of my executive functioning service, I draw upon research-informed strategies to improve self-management skills including organizational, time management, planning, and study skills.
