Long Island, New York
Child and Family Psychology is a company based in Long Island, New York, comprised of psychologists who specialize in working with children. We are a caring and dedicated staff whose mission is to help children in need of psychological assistance. We are passionate about our work with children and are willing to go the extra mile for a child and their family. It is for this reason that our work sometimes takes us on the road, to playgrounds, schools, homes and CSE meetings. That is how we initially earned the name "Psychologist on Wheels," as we go to the places that kids need us the most!

Psychologist on Wheels PC was founded by Dr. Renee Clauselle. The New York company began as a small private practice conducting home visits through early intervention and several local school districts in Long Island and Queens, working with educational attorneys on special education issues, and conducting psychotherapy.
The Long Island company quickly grew, as parents began requesting "Dr. Renee" to work with their children. As the company grew, we changed our name to Child and Family Psychology and settled in to our main office in Franklin Square, New York.
We believe that the success of the company and our doctors and child psychologists is due to three tenets on which Dr. Renee Clauselle has built her private practice:
1. We are child-friendly.
2. We use evidence-based treatments.
3. We are passionate about helping every child do their personal best.
We are now based in Franklin Square, New York. Child and Family Psychology is a group with caring qualified psychologists under the leadership, and business structure, created by founder Dr. Renee Clauselle. Our clinical directors provide clinical leadership and oversight for the practice.
