About Dr. Monica Oganes
I have a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in clinical neuropsychology and I am a licensed school psychologist in private practice, with offices in Miami and in Orlando, Florida. My training includes a bachelor’s degree in psychology from George Mason University, an educational specialist degree in school psychology from the University of Central Florida, and a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, neuropsychology track, from Fielding Graduate University. I worked in the public schools for over a decade, completed an internship in clinical psychology at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital Pediatric Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Unit in Miami, and obtained postdoctoral training at the Neuropsychology Clinic. I combine the fields of school psychology and neuropsychology in my work, providing targeted services in English and Spanish. I work with a wonderful group of school psychologists and neuropsychologists on my team.
What I Do
I love my career! I work with kids, teens, and adults.
I have evaluated thousands of kids with autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, traumatic brain injury, and gifted students. I provide therapy to kids and teens with anxiety, depression, victims of bullying, and kids with emotional and behavioral challenges.
I work with children and families seeking immigration relief in their path to legal residence and citizenship in the United States, and provide expert testimony in court.
I enjoy working with LGBTQ children and youth to provide them with support, help their parents, and ensure they are provided with a healthy and safe environment where they can thrive.
Adults may need a little help when stuck with challenges of life. Whether it is parenting skills, career challenges, or relationship issues, I help to evaluate and manage your difficulties and emotions, so we can transform them into thriving energy to achieve your goals.
I have been working in the field for two decades and provide trainings in the United States and the world to psychologists, educators, and professional organizations. I also provide workshops to help the community and appear on international TV and radio programs.
My main office is in the downtown area in Miami, and I provide Telehealth services in Orlando and throughout Florida.
