Sanam Hafeez, PhD, Psychologist in Forest Hills
My area of expertise is assessment, without which a diagnosis and treatment planning cannot be determined. Often, therapy or medication falls short because of poor or unclear diagnosis. I use my years of clinical and academic experience as well as a tailored, objective assessment to address:Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Depression, Anxiety and Bipolar Disorder. I also help families and the court system with forensic, child custody and special education litigation as an expert witness.
My years of clinical practice, faculty position at Columbia University, and collaborations with the NYC's school and court systems, BOCES and CUNY, have made me a sought after expert. I am often featured on the Dr. Oz Show, CBS News, Nancy Grace, WebMD, Women's Health, and much more.
I have extensive experience in all types of assessments; neuropsychological, educational, forensic and psychiatric. My two locations in Queens and Manhattan as well as flexible appointments allow for greater convenience for all. I accept several insurances and credit cards.
