Home visits in NYC, and Westchester and Rockland Counties

Dr. Hershberg is a clinical psychologist who specializes in early childhood social-emotional development and mental health, and the founder of Little House Calls Psychological Services, PLLC.  She has an office in Columbus Circle, Manhattan, and works with families in their homes in NYC, Westchester, and Rockland Counties. 

Prior to her current work, Dr. Hershberg was most recently the Director of Early Childhood at Ramapo for Children (to which she remains a consultant), and the Director of Training and Quality for Healthy Steps at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, an infant and toddler preventive mental health program that gained national and international attention for its integration of early childhood mental health professionals within primary care pediatrics. While at Montefiore, Dr. Hershberg held an Assistant Professorship in the Department of Pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, through which she taught both pediatric residents and medical students.

Dr. Hershberg grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, where she attended Trinity School (K-12), and earned her Bachelor of Arts degree at Yale University, from which she graduated summa cum laude. She obtained her PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Virginia, where she was a fellow of the Center for Children, Families and the Law, and was the recipient of the Buffett Fellowship for Applied Work in the area of Children and Families in Need. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at Bellevue Hospital Center and the New York University Child Study Center, following which she worked as a child psychologist at Bellevue Hospital Center and New York City’s Administration for Children’s Services (ACS). During this time, she was also a Clinical Instructor of Psychology in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the New York University School of Medicine.

Dr. Hershberg has written several articles for Big City Moms (an online destination for mothers, mothers-to-be, and families), presented seminars and workshops at numerous preschools and pediatric practices in and around New York City, conducted seminars for Six Degrees of Mom (a NYC-based private playgroup community), authored book chapters, and been published in multiple peer-reviewed journals. She lives in Dobbs Ferry, NY with her husband and two young sons, who both keep her busier – though also smiling! – more than any of the above.
