Ellen Rudikoff, PhD, PsyD
Licensed Psychologist

My Background

Throughout my career, I have been committed to improving the quality of people’s lives.

After completing a PhD in developmental psychology – the study of change throughout the life span – I chose to enhance my skills as a clinician, and earned a second doctorate, a PsyD (Doctor of Psychology.)

Having studied psychology from a developmental perspective continues to provide a unique dimension to my clinical work.

Licensed as a psychologist since 1989, I opened my own practice in 1998.  Prior to that, I provided psychological services to individuals and couples in a variety of settings including a group practice, community mental health agency, VA hospital outpatient clinic, inpatient trauma unit, and various school systems.

Further, I worked in a range of professional capacities including being the executive director of an agency which provided end-of-life care and as a director at several human service organizations.

In my practice, I combine my extensive training and professional experience with my deep commitment to assisting people more effectively manage their lives.
