Meet Dr. Schneider


I am a North American born NYS Licensed Psychologist with an array of international education and work experiences.  I hold a PhD in Clinical Psychology and a four year postdoctoral specialization in Frommian Psychoanalysis.  I have lived and worked in both Europe and Mexico, as well as in the USA and have treated a wide variety of culturally, ethnically, racially, religiously and linguistically diverse populations, as well as in age and symptom particularities.  

In terms of hobbies and leanings, I enjoy cultural pursuits: art, music, literature, dance and multicultural settings.  I have worked in psychiatric hospitals and hospitals dedicated to medical illnesses wherein psychological problems are etiologically related to the disease in question, or are secondary to them.   I have also worked in private practice spanning my professional career and in the corporate sector.   I am passionate about my profession and understanding the many routes to discover the unknown and the truth.  My interest is mission driven relating to a drive to help by activating one’s finer qualities and inspiring clients to speak to life with a higher voice.

Languages: English,  Spanish, Italian and French
