About Dr. Palma

I have been a New York State Licensed Psychologist and a NYS Certified School Psychologist for over 20 years, and have recently expanded my practice in Bayport, NY. The office is conveniently located on Montauk Highway and is within walking distance of public transportation. My office is handicapped accessible. In my practice, I treat children, adolescents, and adults.

My graduate training in cognitive behavioral therapy has provided me with the tools to treat a variety of emotional disorders, including anxiety, depression, phobias and related mood disorders. I utilize an active, solution oriented approach to therapy, which can include behavioral management, cognitive behavior therapy, and relaxation therapy.

In addition, I have been trained in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. I use hypnosis as a powerful tool to treat a variety of conditions, including pain, depression, anxiety, and habit disorders such as smoking and overeating.

My years of experience in the school system as both a psychologist and an administrator have provided me with extensive knowledge in working with students with ADHD, Learning Disabilities, and Autism Spectrum Disorders. I provide social skills training to children and adults with Asperger’s Disorder, as well as parent groups to address a variety of childhood behavior problems. 

My practice serves the needs of children, adolescents, and adults. Individual and group sessions are available. Office hours are available weekdays and evenings.
