Philip Glickman, PsyD, is a psychologist at his own private practice, Wellness Road Psychology, which has two locations in Dobbs Ferry, New York, and the Financial District of New York City. He thoroughly enjoys serving the diverse cognitive and emotional needs of the city's population by incorporating the mind and body.
Dr. Glickman understands that painful emotions and the behaviors that result from them can affect a patient’s life at home, work, school, and social settings. He strives to identify patient needs and promptly puts together a plan of action to improve their mental well-being.
Dr. Glickman didn’t always work in behavioral science. However, he grew up watching his father practice clinical psychology. For his bachelor’s degree, he followed in his father’s footsteps and earned a degree in behavioral science from the University of Maryland in College Park. After graduating, he worked in finance for four years before deciding to pursue higher education in psychology.
Back in school, Dr. Glickman attended John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City for his master’s degree in forensic psychology. While working on his master’s degree, he completed an internship at Lincoln Correctional Facility in New York City. There, he had the opportunity to work alongside populations he’d only seen on TV. He taught inmates valuable skills to help them improve their resumes and prepare for job interviews after their release.
Finally, Dr. Glickman completed his Doctor of Psychology at Hofstra University in Hempstead, Long Island, New York. The experience taught him to manage his time, work with challenging patients, concentrate with little sleep, and find value in each of his professional experiences.
Today, Dr. Glickman continues to gather new information to bring to his patients through membership in the American Psychological Association. He is fluent in both English and Spanish and wants to give all of his patients the opportunity to escape their troubles and feel relaxed in his office.
When he isn’t at Wellness Road Psychology encouraging patients to open up and giving them honest feedback, Dr. Glickman enjoys spending time with his wife and two young daughters. He goes to the occasional concert with his high school friends and stays in shape by playing basketball with a group of neighborhood dads.
