Dr. Kathleen Cuneo

The focus of my work has always been on helping people grow, achieve their potential, and live happy, healthy, balanced lives.

I earned my doctoral degree in Applied Developmental Psychology from Fordham University and have been working with children and families for over two decades. I am a licensed psychologist in the state of New York and have extensive experience in working with children as young as toddlers on up. Some of the most common issues I work with include ADHD, anxiety, behavioral issues, and family issues.

More recently, I have deepened my knowledge in career development and counseling and have completed training through the National Career Development Association. In my career counseling work, I use a strength-based approach to help set you on the path to figuring out what you “want to be when you grow up” ~ whether you’re a young adult just starting out in the world, a mid-life mom contemplating a return to the workforce after valuable years spent home raising kids, or someone looking for meaningful work in a “retirement career”. I offer a variety of assessments, including the Strong Interest Inventory, to help you on a path toward a career that fits well with your interests, values, and skills – AND that fits well with the rest of your life.

“The key to successful parenting is not found in complex theories, elaborate family rules, or convoluted formulas for behavior. It is based on your deepest feelings of love and affection for your child and is demonstrated simply through empathy and understanding.” John Gottman, Ph.D.


“My time with Kathleen Cuneo was one I looked forward to each week. She had wonderful suggestions / ideas on how to help me deal with challenging situations when it came to my daughter. Kathleen was always extremely professional yet my comfort level was that of a friend – she did not judge me or my daughter, rather provided me with a level of support that I will always be grateful for.”
