Dr. Maddie Roxandich, PsyD, is a licensed psychologist and Pennsylvania certified school psychologist who provides both clinical therapy and counseling as well as psychoeducational evaluations. She completed her doctorate in psychology at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2023 and holds a previous master’s in special education in 2014 from Lehigh University. 

 

Dr. Roxandich has experience working in partial and intensive outpatient hospitalization programs in addition to the private practice setting. She has worked primarily with teens and adults to manage anxiety, perfectionism, self-esteem issues, depression and other mood disorders, issues related to pregnancy, postpartum, and miscarriage, relationship issues, grief, trauma, ADD/ ADHD and general guidance in strategies to enhance life experiences and achieve more joy.

Dr. Roxandich enjoys working with those who want to learn to better manage any presenting symptoms and who may be trying to find balance among the many roles they must play day-to-day. She works to help her clients find ways to be more present in their lives and “stop going through the motions” by guiding them to build new patterns and insights to restore balance and connection to their values. She believes the client is the expert on their life, and her job is to listen and partner with them while providing a non-judgmental, collaborative space that meets clients where they are. Dr. Roxandich’s primary therapeutic training is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), but she is skilled in integrating a variety of techniques from dialectical behavior theory (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), positive psychology, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness training. In addition, Dr. Roxandich  is a proponent of holistic healing and wellness. She works to embody this in her own life as a part-time Pilates instructor who is also working toward becoming a yoga instructor.

Dr. Roxandich  has thirteen years of experience working in public and alternative school settings as a regular and special educator prior to obtaining formal training as a school psychologist. In this capacity, she employed various research-based interventions related to math, reading, writing and behavior while teaching students with learning disabilities, autism, and emotional and behavioral disorders. Dr. Roxandich’s past navigation of school-based processes, her work with school-based team members and her firsthand experience employing interventions with students provides her with a unique vantage point as an evaluator who can not only recommend appropriate interventions for students, but who can also anticipate common pitfalls and roadblocks to successful interventions. It assists her in comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations and the ability to select and describe recommendations that guardians at home and schools can understand and utilize to help students meet with success.
