Dr. Helene Cohen, PSY.D.

Dr Helene Schwartz-Cohen - psychologist in plantation flHi, I am Dr Helene Schwartz-Cohen… In 1995, I received my Bachelor’s degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I graduated with honors and dual majors in Psychology and Philosophy. During my undergraduate years, I had the unique opportunity to work with leaders in the psychological community. Experimenting in analysis and synthesis of human thought and behavior. At that time, I was involved in several publications. Most pertaining to the importance of maintaining and improving individuals’ “Quality Of Life” (QOL).  As a most significant subjective quantifiable measure of emotional health and well being.

Next, I traveled to South Florida to pursue my graduate career in Miami. I completed both Masters (2005) and Doctoral (2007) degrees in Clinical Psychology (Summa Cum Laude). While attending graduate school, I had the unique opportunity to work with inpatient psychiatric institutions.  As well as outpatient mental health agencies and private practices. Most notably, in 2008, I completed a twelve year service at The Village South. The largest dual diagnosis residential treatment mental health agency in South Florida. For twelve years, I provided The Village South psychological full battery evaluations.  Rendering recommendations to courts and agencies in both the public and private sectors.
