About Shana Grover, Ph.D.

I am the Director of psychological assessment at Madison Park Psychological Services and have extensive experience evaluating children, adolescents and adults across multiple settings including hospitals, schools and outpatient clinics. I have worked with a number of individuals presenting with a wide range of complex issues and my evaluations serve to uncover what may be interfering with your ability to function at your highest potential, whether it be at school, at work or in your relationships.

Through this process, I strive to help every individual understand their strengths and sources of challenges, by thoroughly assessing all aspects of their working mind. By gaining a better understanding, I work closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that caters to their specific needs while enabling them to see parts of themselves that they otherwise may not have been consciously aware of.

My Approach

My approach to psychological testing is to incorporate aspects of the therapeutic process in order to facilitate positive changes in clients and alleviate any anxiety that may result from the assessment itself. In addition to psychological evaluations, I also provide individual psychotherapy to adults who may be experiencing a multitude of complex issues. I approach every unique individual from a compassionate and empathic standpoint with the aim of alleviating suffering and constructing meaning. In treatment, I draw from various therapeutic approaches with an emphasis on psychodynamic/relational psychotherapies with the aim of facilitating a sense of curiosity about one’s internal world and underlying motivations. I believe my genuine approach to treatment fosters a trusting and meaningful relationship whereby clients feel a greater sense of safety, and agency.

Professional Background

I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology at The New School for Social Research in New York City where my research focused on the dynamic interplay between violence towards the self, and violence towards others. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Dalhousie University and an MSc in Forensic Psychology from the University of Surrey. My experience includes individual, group and couples psychotherapy in hospital-based, community and college settings. Prior to joining Madison Park Psychological Services I completed my pre-doctoral internship at Trenton Psychiatric Hospital and my postdoctoral fellowship at Lenox Hill Hospital.

I currently work as a staff psychologist at BronxCare Hospital where I conduct and supervise psychological evaluations for both adults and children and I currently adjunct at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology where I supervise and teach Child Assessment. I am licensed to practice in the state of New York.
