Our Founder

Scott A. Dollinger, Psy.D. is a visionary and innovator in Behavioral Healthcare Services. He is a therapist to therapists and a trainer to trainers. Dr. Dollinger is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with six areas of specialization: Clinical Psychology, Neuropsychology, Geropsychology, Child and Adolescent Psychology, Marital and Family therapy and Professional/Organizational development.

Dr. Dollinger began providing direct clinical services to Behavioral Healthcare clients in 1983. He has worked in a variety of settings including: inpatient psychiatric units for the State and private hospitals, outpatient psychiatric practices, outpatient psychology practices, community mental health centers, residential treatment centers for high risk youth, and physical/cognitive rehabilitation centers. He performed assessment, intervention, training, program development, and consultation services and held positions as Counselor, Senior Clinician, Internship Director, Program Director, Division Vice President, and Chief Executive Officer. Additionally, Dr. Dollinger has acted as a consultant and testified in State hearings on policy issues for youth and he trains Family and Elder Law attorneys on dementia and Capacity Evaluations.

In spite of many clinical successes and opportunities to learn from practitioners of multiple disciplines, Dr. Dollinger found himself frustrated by the lack of consistent competency among healthcare and educational professionals when it came to working with certain diagnoses Read more. This situation became impossible to ignore when his own family members were found to have these conditions and did not receive appropriate diagnosis or treatment for them.

Since these areas received scant attention in his own training, Dr. Dollinger was forced to immerse himself in multidisciplinary empirical research on the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Learning Disabilities (LD), Alzheimer's Disease and Related Diseases (ADRD), and Chronic Illness (CI). After years of study, training, and trial and error, Dr. Dollinger developed an integrated system of care to meet these clients' unique needs. This system, derived from Biopsychosocial Therapy, is the cornerstone of our clinical approach.
