Shielagh Hochberg, PhD

Clinical Psychologist 


treating mood and anxiety disorders,

trauma and challenges of the life cycle

About  Me

I'm a clinical psychologist with over 30 years professional experience. I received my doctorate from Adelphi University and worked for several New York City hospitals and clinics before launching a full-time private practice in 2001. In the beginning I specialized in mood and anxiety disorders and the aftereffects of trauma, and continue to treat these today, adding a focus on changes in the life cycle as well as obsessive compulsive disorder. 


During the COVID pandemic I worked exclusively by Zoom and FaceTime and have returned to the office but still offer video sessions. I hold active licenses in Florida, where I now practice and reside, and in the state of New York.  


My orientation is psychodynamic with experience using other modalities such as hypnosis and eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). I bring my practice of Buddhism and experience treating people in 12-step recovery to the table as well. Having lost my husband to Alzheimer’s Disease several years ago, I now also offer guidance to individuals and families for whom this is an ongoing source of change, pain, adjustment and eventually loss.

Our lives unfold in ways we cannot predict.

Whether it is life at the crossroads, clearing up the wreckage of the past, or dealing with health and other challenges of life, 

we need not face these challenges alone.
