Deborah Serani is a go-to expert on psychological issues. Her interviews can be found in ABC News, the Associated Press, CNN, Newsday, Psychology Today, The Chicago Tribune, Women’s Health & Fitness and affiliate radio station programmes at CBS and NPR, just to name a few.
Deborah descended into a debilitating depression as a teenager, attempting suicide at age 19. The fallout from this major depressive episode required her to take a medical leave from university in order to recover. Crediting psychotherapy as life-saving, Deborah directed her focus to the field of psychology and graduated with a BA in Psychology from Hofstra University in 1982, a Doctorate in Psychology from the Ferkauf School at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1989, and a Post-doctoral Certificate in Psychoanalysis from the Derner Institute at Adelphi University in 2002.
She has spent the majority of her twenty plus years as a practising psychologist using her personal experiences with depression to inform her clinical work, research and writing. She has been a sought after speaker, presenting at over a hundred different venues, most notably bringing her personal and professional experiences with depression to mental health conventions nationally and internationally.
Deborah writes for Psychology Today and helms the “Ask The Therapist” column for Esperanza Magazine. She is the author of the award-winning books, “Living with Depression” and “Depression and Your Child: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers” published by Rowman & Littlefield.
