She uses a dynamic therapeutic framework to help clients examine patterns in their emotions, thoughts, and beliefs, gaining insight into their current selves. Dr. Dispoto’s expertise in trauma-informed therapy helps clients process past events and build resilience to cope with life stressors. As an EMDRIA-Approved EMDR therapist, she offers EMDR Intensives to help clients go deeper and accelerate their healing journey. Dr. Dispoto integrates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness to provide clients with immediate tools to reduce distress and connect with what is important to them.

Dr. Dispoto earned her PsyD in Psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University and is a licensed psychologist in New York, Virginia, Washington DC, and New Jersey. She completed the majority of her graduate training at New York University, where she earned an advanced certification as a School Psychologist. Dr. Dispoto has specialized training in trauma-focused CBT and Mindfulness, along with advanced training in trauma from the Audrey Hepburn Children’s House in New Jersey.
