EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENT & NEUROPSYCH EVALUATIONS
Welcome to my website. I am now accepting a limited number of new therapy and testing clients. Please note that therapy services are provided via telehealth. In the majority of cases telehealth is as effective as in person care. Evaluations are conducted in person in Midtown East and Lower Westchester. Please contact me for more information and to discuss scheduling. Thank you kindly for your interest.
Cassady Casey, Psy.D.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist with extensive experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families. My expertise in both therapy and assessment provides me with a unique perspective on underlying reasons for behaviors and appropriate interventions.

New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center
Mount Sinai Morningside
Zucker Hillside Hospital-Northwell Health
Areas of Specialization

Autism Spectrum Disorder
Evidence-Based Treatment & Neuropsychological Evaluations
I am proud to offer Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) for anxiety, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD,
Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE), and behavioral parent training to reduce misbehavior and improve the parent-child relationship.
CBT involves teaching skills that change thinking and behavior, leading to enduring improvements in mood, functioning, and quality of life. Through CBT, I teach clients tangible skills to improve their daily lives, and manage life stress and challenges in growing up. ERP involves exposure to the thoughts, images, situations, and objects triggering anxiety and working towards not engaging in behaviors that alleviate but ultimately reinforce that anxiety. The SPACE Program is a parent-based intervention developed at the Yale Child Study Center that has been proven effective in treating childhood anxiety and OCD.
In addition to my therapy practice, I evaluate preschoolers through adults using research-based standardized assessments. I work to pin point each individual's strengths and needs, and empower individuals and families with clarity and direction for therapeutic, educational, and life planning. In collaboration with parents, schools, and related providers, I help identify appropriate 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 one'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 the individual to clarify their 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.
