Lyudmila's Bio

After earning her bachelor’s degree in psychology (minor in Child Development) in North Carolina, Lyudmila earned her master's degree in school psychology and her doctorate in school and clinical child psychology at Yeshiva University's Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology.

She completed several practica in schools, community mental health clinics, inpatient and outpatient hospitals, and a foster care agency in four of the five boroughs of New York City.

Currently, Lyudmila is completing her postdoctoral fellowship and is working towards licensure as a clinical child psychologist. She provides comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations through assessing strengths and weaknesses in cognitive, academic, and social-emotional domains in children and adolescents under the supervision of Dr. Lori Wilson.

Additionally, she believes that visiting the child's school and collaborating with teachers and other school personnel is vital to complete a school observation.
