Cultivating Psychologically Healthy Communities

HVPA seeks to advance the profession of psychology and to serve New York's Hudson Valley community. HVPA was founded in 1984. Members of HVPA are licensed psychologists who work in various settings including nonprofit agencies, community mental health clinics, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, schools, college counseling centers, and private practice. Members live and work in various regions of the Hudson Valley, including the counties of Dutchess, Ulster, and Orange.

All members maintain the high standards of professional and ethical practice as mandated by licensure through the New York State Board of Education and by principles of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the New York State Psychological Association (NYSPA).If you are seeking diagnosis or treatment by a qualified member psychologist, please click here...
