Dr. Certilman is a licensed clinical neuropsychologist and serves as LifeStance’s Director of Evaluation Services for New York State. Dr. Certilman evaluates patients across the lifespan, from school-aged children through older adults, to conceptualize and treat cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and/or functional challenges. Dr. Certilman enjoys working with children and their families to characterize the child’s unique cognitive profile. She believes in not only addressing areas of difficulty with a comprehensive treatment plan, but also identifying strengths that might bolster the child’s success. Dr. Certilman also has specialized interest and training in working with adults and older adults with neurological illness or disease, such as concussion/ traumatic brain injury, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Lyme disease, and mild cognitive impairment and/or dementia. Dr. Certilman believes in a holistic approach to evaluation and treatment planning that incorporates data on brain-behavior relationships with relevant psychological, academic/occupational, and social history to optimize patient outcomes.

Her predoctoral internship was at St. Vincent Neuroscience Center where she completed rotations in outpatient neuropsychological assessment, inpatient neurorehabilitation, and adolescent behavioral health.
