Khaya Eisenberg, Psy.D. earned her doctorate in school-clinical child psychology from Pace University. She is a nationally certified school psychologist. Dr. Eisenberg also completed postgraduate training in marital and family systems therapy at the Family Institute in Jerusalem and is fluent in Hebrew. She recently certified as a PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator, qualifying her to provide a structured program of evidence-based premarital counseling.
Dr. Eisenberg provides psychotherapy and assessment to a broad population of children, adolescents, and adults. She also provides both premarital and traditional marital therapy to couples who wish to strengthen their relationships. Dr. Eisenberg’s theoretical orientation is integrative, drawing on cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, family systems, and existential approaches to tailor psychotherapy to the individual needs of the client. Her special interests include couples counseling, parent-child relationship problems, children and adolescents with various emotional and behavioral concerns, and adults experiencing life transitions. Dr. Eisenberg completed her doctoral internship at Hawthorn Center and at University Psychiatric Center in Michigan. At Hawthorn Center she developed expertise with complex inpatient child and adolescent populations. At University Psychiatric Center at Livonia she expanded her skills with treating an at-risk outpatient population of children and adolescents. She also worked as part of an early childhood intervention team.
Dr. Eisenberg has held adjunct faculty positions at Pace University, University of North Texas Department of Foreign Studies, and University of Detroit Mercy. She has published a number of academic articles on foster care, cultural and gender issues, and other topics and participated in a research group developing spiritual care interventions. Prior to joining the Bartky Healthcare Center Dr. Eisenberg worked as a supervising psychologist in two residential healthcare settings. At these settings she provided psychotherapy to both geriatric and rehabilitation patients, including intensive rehabilitation work with psychiatric inpatients who had suffered traumatic brain injury.
