Dr. Craig Springer Psychologist


Imagine waking up feeling excited and energized about the day ahead. What if there was a way for you or a loved one to feel great? Together, we can collaborate to determine which powerful strategies can help you accomplish your goals. Life can be challenging, and working with a professional can be incredibly helpful when you or a loved one feel alone or overwhelmed. There’s nothing more that I enjoy than assisting people overcome life’s obstacles and watching them thrive. I view clients as experts on themselves. You and I work collaboratively to identify the focus and scope of treatment. We then utilize evidence-based practices to work toward achieving client goals. Testing is used at the beginning and throughout the therapeutic process to assess needs as well as progress. Whether you have a child who is struggling academically or socially or if you are seeking help with relationships, depression or anxiety, I am here to provide support and guidance. I invite you to visit my website to learn more about my individualized and collaborative approach. I am a clinical psychologist and licensed as a practicing psychologist in New York (016741) and New Jersey (35SI00449700) and I am credentialed by the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. I am Level 2 certified in TEAM Therapy and received specialized training in mindfulness and trauma-informed treatments. I earned my MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology at Fairleigh Dickinson University and completed my undergraduate degree summa cum laude at New York University. I am currently the co-owner of the Good Life Center for Mental Health. Previously, I was the Director of the Center for Psychological Services, overseeing 10 doctoral training clinics, at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University. I was also Co-Director of the New Jersey Coordination Center for Child Abuse and Neglect Forensic Evaluation and Treatment. Prior to that, I served as a Supervising Psychologist at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, where I developed a model for treating trauma. I have experience developing, conducting, supervising, and researching evidence-based psychotherapeutic programs for children, adolescents, and adults. Over the course of my career, I have given over 50 professional presentations and workshops, published numerous theoretical and empirical manuscripts and I co-authored a book entitled “Game-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Child Sexual Abuse: An Innovative Approach.” I served on the Practice Guidelines Committee of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children and was an editorial board member for the Journal of Child Sexual Abuse and reviewer for Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy. I have expertise in the assessment and treatment of trauma, anxiety, mood problems, behavioral difficulties, interpersonal problems and perinatal mental health. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to assist them overcome the challenges and difficulties that they are facing.
