Teri Solochek, Ph.D. is a Licensed Psychologist (Psy11869), Educational Consultant, and Certified Educational Planner with over 35 years of experience in school and therapeutic placement of children, adolescents and young adults. 


She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in children and adolescents, and a Doctorate, also in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in children and adolescents.  

For many years she had a therapy and testing practice along with educational and therapeutic consulting. Teri's professional focus is on the consulting practice. She also conducts testing, but no longer provides individual therapy.
 

Dr. Solochek has traveled extensively visiting local private day schools, and boarding schools and therapeutic programs nationally. 


She has presented at numerous national conferences and for specialized webinars on topics such as testing, anxiety in adolescents, navigating transitioning from therapeutic programs, and preparing your teen to launch.


Dr. Solochek believes in giving young people the opportunity to develop the skills to launch into young adulthood. For some, that means specialized placement in therapeutic programs where they, along with their family, can work through the emotional, behavioral, social, and substance use issues that have derailed their development. 


She is a believer in goodness of fit; not just the appropriate school or program but the right therapist and peer group.

 

Dr. Solochek has worked with thousands of children, adolescents and young adults in her career and has been a part of the treatment team that has helped them successfully navigate their challenges.


She is a member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs, the American Psychological Association, and the Los Angeles Psychological Association. 


Lastly, as a mother and wife, Teri is passionately committed to making sure that her clients are treated the same, as if it were her son being cared for.
