Dr. Stephanie Lesk received her Ph.D. in 1996 from Hofstra University, a combined School and Clinical Doctoral program. Her initial focus was resilience in teenage girls, for which she provided psychotherapy to those with anxiety, eating disorders, and depression at a private center. Mount Sinai Hospital’s Communication Disorder Center followed, where she spent years using a collaborative approach to diagnostics and therapeutic interventions for children and teens with learning, emotional, and attentional disorders. Dr. Lesk has been in private practice since 2000.
Dr. Lesk’s private practice in the Flatiron District surrounds two core areas, the first of which is cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy for girls and young women who experience mood, behavioral, and relational issues. Second, she conducts comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations to identify mood, learning, and attentional issues that impact a child’s school performance, relationships, and well-being. Dr. Lesk takes a global view to understand the unique issues that affect each client’s ability to cope, communicate, and succeed academically. With a warm, compassionate, and direct style, Dr. Lesk identifies the core issues and develops effective plans that help clients make positive changes and reach their potential. Working collaboratively with tutors, pediatricians, psychiatrists, parents, and schools is essential to providing thorough care to her clients.
