Cassandra Hoy MS

I am a fifth-year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology PhD program at Fairleigh Dickinson University. I received my MA in clinical psychology from Teacher’s College, Columbia University, and my BA in forensic psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, graduating with high honors in psychology.

I have been an extern at Columbia University Medical Center, New York State Psychiatric Institute where I provided comprehensive evaluations and neuropsychological assessments, as well as group and individual cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to children, adolescents, and their families on the Children’s Day Unit (CDU). I was also an extern at New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell, Westchester Division, where I provided group and individual CBT to children and adolescents on the inpatient units, improvisation-based CBT outpatient group treatment for adults with social anxiety, and outpatient CBT group treatment for adults with OCD. I was also an extern at the Center for Psychological Services at Fairleigh Dickinson University, providing neuropsychological and psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults. I have experience providing CBT treatment to children in a school setting, having worked as an extern at a local New Jersey public high school. Additionally, I received a scholarship to complete parent-management training (PMT) at Yale’s Parenting Center and provided PMT for families at the Center for Psychological Services. I am currently completing my dissertation looking at the use of default options in the prevention of childhood obesity.
