Welcome to the Home of Specialized Therapy Associates!

Specialized Therapy Associates (STA) has been in operation since 1994 with a staff of psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists in NJ in Hackensack, Ramsey, Short Hills, Fort Lee, Riveredge and Spring Valley NY. STA is a special place that believes you deserve special attention.

STA provides the full range of psychological services: individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy and group therapy. We also provide a full range of psychological testing services for all age ranges from childhood through adulthood for personality testing, executive testing, intelligence, learning and neuropsychological testing. We are staffed with psychologists in the areas of clinical and school specialties. We are staffed with Board certified adult and child psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners, clinical social workers, licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselors and licensed professional counselors. Every practitioner is evaluated to have maintained good standing in their practices.

Specialized Therapy Associates (STA) is a group of diverse, experienced and specialized staff of psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and other health professionals formed under Dr. Vanessa Gourdine. This highly skilled and specialized staff is continuously trained on the most recent research and developments in the field which makes STA's treatment services cutting-edge.

STA practices the team approach. Each professional on staff brings to the team a set of specialized training and skills that allows for the full integration of care. We can utilize the team approach to provide individual, group, family and couples treatment under one roof as well as provide the specialist that you may require for optimal care. If your family has complex problems involving the children, the spouse, substance abuse or health issues, we can bring together the best professionals on staff to fit your needs and provide all facets of your care. If you require medication and therapy, you can receive the services in a coordinated fashion at one facility where your providers work together.
