Carolyn Certilman, PsyD

Dr. Certilman is a 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 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 also enjoys working with children and their families to not only address the child’s areas of difficulty, but also identify strengths that might bolster the child’s success. 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.

Dr. Certilman received her doctorate degree in clinical psychology from the University of Indianapolis. Her predoctoral internship was at St. Vincent Neuroscience Center where she completed rotations in outpatient neuropsychological assessment, inpatient neurorehabilitation, and adolescent behavioral health. She completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology at Stony Brook University Medical Center where she evaluated children and adults in an outpatient setting. Previous research interests include performance validity and the impact of transient factors on assessment of attention. In her free time, Dr. Certilman enjoys hiking, cooking, traveling and spending time with her partner and son.
