Dr. Sandrock received her Master’s and Doctoral Degrees in Clinical Child and School Psychology from Pace University in New York City. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at NYU Langone Health Pediatric Rusk Rehabilitation, where she provided brief supportive psychotherapy to individuals and their families during their stay on an acute inpatient medical rehabilitation unit. At Rusk, Dr. Sandrock worked closely with her interdisciplinary team of medical doctors, nurses, child-life specialists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, and occupational therapists to ensure optimal treatment. During her doctoral training, she worked closely with students with disabilities in various school districts.
