Founder/Director

Marc J. Shulman, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

As an experienced clinical psychologist (therapist) on Long Island, I have had the opportunity to hone my skills over many years of training and working with people of varied ages and backgrounds. After graduating from Yeshiva University with my doctorate in psychology I spent 7 years as an Associate Research Scientist at Yale University and at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System, where I was a Program Director in their Clinical Health Psychology department and conducted research on a wide range of psychological issues. Throughout this time I maintained an active private practice in Stamford, CT. Since relocating to Long Island I serve as a core faculty member in a nationally recognized program at the Northport VA Medical Center and opened private offices in Lawrence and Garden City.

Additionally, I have supervised students from many of the top graduate programs, published in prestigious psychology journals, presented at professional conferences and developed treatment manuals that are used in clinical research at major educational institutions and hospitals. I helped launch businesses that provided greater access to therapeutic services to people in need across the nation and developed novel techniques to foster human creativity in group settings. I also spent several years developing a unique approach to therapy called Dynamic Experiential Learning (DEL), which is designed to help you overcome obstacles and achieve more satisfaction from life. Please read more about this on the Our Approach page.

More than anything else though, I truly love what I do! This allows me to connect with people from all walks of life and successfully help people live happier lives.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in individual therapy or group therapy or marriage counseling / couples therapy at (516) 732-0273.

Atara Wertentheil, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Through years of training, I have had the opportunity to develop my clinical skills while working with children, adolescents, emerging adults, and adult populations in outpatient mental health, private clinic, and university settings. I received my masters in Mental Health Counseling and my doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Fordham University Graduate School of Education. I was also the recipient of an award from the American Psychological Association’s Section on College and University Counseling Centers recognizing my work with the college population.

I work with diverse individuals on:

Using an integrative relational approach, I guide clients through the process of self-discovery, while honoring and respecting that they are experts on their own lives and know themselves best. I consider and illuminate the unique holistic essence of each client and aim to cultivate a safe and productive therapeutic relationship. It’s scary to take that first step, but I’m here to support my clients on the curative journey towards self awareness, wholeness, and relief.

When one feels deflated, unmotivated, powerless or overwhelmed, enacting change and confronting challenges can be especially tough. In my work, I help clients to embrace vulnerability, realize and utilize their internal and external resources, discover their voice, and reach their full potential. Moreover, I wholeheartedly love working with people! This allows me to connect with a variety of populations in order to help them lead more satisfying and authentic lives.

Jennifer Hersh Zurndorfer, LCSW-R

Clinical Social Worker

I have been providing clinical services for the last 15 years.  Throughout my professional experiences, I have worked with children, adults and couples; all from various backgrounds. I graduated with my Masters in Social Work from Fordham University in 2005. Since graduating, I have worked in various settings, which include school-based counseling and outpatient individual psychotherapy. For the last five years I have served as Clinical Director of New Horizon Counseling Center in Ozone Park. I supervise many therapists and oversee the treatment of our 500+ client base. During this time, I have also maintained a private practice in West Hempstead, New York.

I approach each session with an open-minded mentality.  Making the choice to begin counseling can sometimes feel challenging on many levels. My priority is ensuring that my clients feel understood and supported throughout their treatment.  Based on an individual’s needs and strengths, I utilize a variety of evidence-based treatment models that I feel will yield optimal progress. I have helped individuals overcome challenges related to depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma/PTSD, codependency, addictive behaviors, gender dysphoria, grief, family conflict as well as many other issues that stem from biological and environmental sources.

I feel grateful to work in a profession where I can assist individuals who are seeking to improve their overall wellbeing. The highlight of my job is helping others successfully identify and utilize their own strengths for self-improvement while incorporating effective coping strategies.
