Liz joined College Internship Program in January of 2017. Liz is thrilled to have the opportunity to assist CIP in offering compassionate, individualized, thoughtful, evidence-based care and support to young adults with ASD or other learning differences to help them reach their potential in independent living, work, creative expression, social, and educational domains.
Liz graduated with honors from Brown University in 1980. In 1987, she earned her doctorate in clinical psychology at what was then Hahnemann University in Philadelphia. Liz then completed a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology at what was then Hahnemann University Hospital. Since completing her education and training, Liz has been lucky to have worked as a psychologist and neuropsychologist at many institutions across New England and the tri-state area , serving all ages. About 15 years ago, she began specializing in autism spectrum disorders, but continues to have expertise and interest in other learning challenges including learning disabilities, developmental disability, head injury, and others. She has a particular interest in girls with ASD. Since 2007, Liz has had the privilege to work as a staff neuropsychologist on the autism spectrum disorders service at the NYU Child Study Center in Manhattan, and on the faculty at the NYU School of Medicine. Liz is a lifelong learner and continues to develop new skills in diverse areas of mental health including addiction, personality disorder, risk associated with preterm birth, and very early signs of ASD in babies.
Liz has been vacationing in the Berkshires for over 20 years and is very happy that she is fulfilling her dream of making this her year-round home. She has two adult daughters, 24, and 21. She loves to cook, travel, read, and bike. She recently completed the “5-borough Bike Ride and the “Tour de Bronx” with her daughter and is looking forward to more biking in the Berkshires.
