Tell us a little bit about your background and what inspired you to start your practice…

I am originally from Philadelphia and moved to Boca Raton with my family during high school. After having lived through some pretty bad winters, I knew that I never wanted to leave! I received my Bachelor’s degree from The University of Miami and went on to complete my masters and doctorate from Nova Southeastern University. When it came time to start thinking about starting a family, my husband and I decided to move back to Boca to be closer to our friends and families.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Florida, specializing in the treatment of children, young adults, parents, and their families. My main areas of focus are on social and emotional concerns, developmental disabilities, employment and school-related challenges, and family dynamics.

Prior to having my son, I worked in a variety of settings including non-profit agencies, community mental health centers, substance abuse rehabilitation facilities, schools, university clinics, and hospitals.

I had always wanted to make the leap into private practice knowing it could provide me with the flexibility to do what I love and have time to spend with family. But, I was fearful of being out on my own. With the support of my amazing husband, I took a huge leap and began Ryan Seidman, Psy.D., LLC.  Fast forward four years and I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to work doing something I feel so passionate about, while also having the time to raise my son.

What’s unique about your practice and why should MBMom readers become clients?

Within my practice, I utilize various modalities to treat each client’s unique needs. This includes individual counseling, behavioral interventions, social skills training, family therapy, parent education and training, and group therapy. In addition, I provide consultative services to a variety of school personnel and medical professionals throughout Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. I also have extensive experience conducting developmental, psychoeducational, neuropsychological and psychological evaluations.

About six months ago, I joined an incredible group of professionals at The Center for the Treatment of Anxiety and Mood Disorders. This facility is unique to this area as it provides individuals and families the opportunity to access a variety of services and providers, all within one office. The Center truly emphasizes the idea of treating the whole person rather than only focusing on specific symptoms. In addition to individual psychological and psychiatric services, clients are able to take advantages of the center’s additional cutting edge services including teletherapy, intensive programming, mindfulness training, group therapy and family therapy.

I am very excited to be able to offer a variety of social skills groups at The Center for the Treatment of Anxiety and Mood Disorders. These groups will aim to increase a child’s ability to navigate social situations with ease and success.

Goals include, but are not limited to developing and improving social understanding, flexibility, and problem solving skills as well as decreasing anxiety. In addition, the Center offers a variety of additional groups in order to serve the specific needs of our diverse client base.

What do you, Ryan Seidman, love about living and working in South Florida?Print

Having grown up in South Florida, I feel so lucky to now be able to give back to the community where I was raised. It’s going to be wonderful for my son to now experience all of the incredible things that this area has to offer; most importantly sharing Miami Heat games with his family (and of course winning the halftime baby race at 11 months old)!
