Steven Roth

Steven RothI am a clinical psychologist licensed in New Jersey.  Additionally, I am a New Jersey certified school psychologist and have been working in the field for the past 24 years. I joined Dr. Garcia’s practice in May 2016 and work with clients ranging in age from children to adults presenting with a variety of emotional and behavioral difficulties. I offer services in a variety of therapeutic modalities including individual, group, couples, and family.

I earned my PsyD in School-Clinical Child Psychology at Pace University. Prior to my doctoral training, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, graduating cum laude, from the University of Massachusetts—Amherst. I am currently pursuing my postdoctoral certificate in psychoanalytic training at the New Jersey Institute for Training in Psychoanalysis. Clinical experiences include working with individuals coping with depression, other mood disorders, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, psychosis, parent/child relational issues, ADHD, and attachment disorders. Working with individuals exhibiting oppositional defiance and conduct disorders has become one of my preferred populations. My experience was gained in a variety of settings including schools, colleges, psychiatric hospitals, outpatient clinics, and forensic settings. I also have extensive experience conducting comprehensive psychological assessments of both personality and cognitive ability.

Prior affiliations include the West Bergen Mental Health Center for Children and Youth where I specialized in play therapy and the treatment of disaffected teenagers. In addition to joining Dr. Garcia’s practice, I am currently affiliated with the Clifton Board of Education, the Holmstead School, and the Institute for Forensic Psychology.

I am a member of the American Psychological Association (general and Division of Psychoanalysis), the New Jersey Psychological Association, and the National Association of School Psychologists.
