Dr. Meltzer received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and earned his masters and doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University. He completed his doctoral training at North Shore-LIJ’s APA accredited program at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center – The Zucker Hillside Hospital. His experience included one-year of specialized training in the adult Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) program where he had access to an advanced training course in Practicing DBT to Adherence and Competence provided by Treatment Implementation Collaborative (TIC).
Dr. Meltzer continued his specialization in DBT and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (CBT) as a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Cognitive and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (CCDBT). His fellowship included attending intensive DBT training by Behavioral Tech, LLC (the training company developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D.), weekly DBT seminars, and weekly individual supervision from a Behavioral Tech trainer.
In addition to his expertise in DBT and CBT, Dr. Meltzer completed a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Norman Fried specializing in trauma, grief and loss, and integrative psychotherapy (including psychodynamic, family systems, and existential-humanistic approaches).
Since 2012, Dr. Meltzer has built a thriving private practice located in Manhasset, NY. Dr. Meltzer’s approach to treatment is often integrative and, at the same time, he specializes in providing evidence-based models of treatment. As an intensively trained DBT therapist, with extensive experience in DBT adherent programs, Dr. Meltzer has been able to develop his own private practice approach to DBT.
In 2014 Dr. Meltzer co-founded Manhattan Mind, a multidisciplinary consultation team and private practice in New York City. Manhattan Mind strives to provide seamless collaboration and integration between disciplines in order to help clients achieve the highest level of mental health and wellness.
