Dr. Tomb is a child and adolescent psychologist and neuropsychologist. She specializes in comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations of children, adolescents, and young adults with learning, language, attention/executive function, and developmental disabilities. Evaluations are completed within a developmental framework and often include assessment of social-emotional functioning and co-occurring psychiatric concerns. Her work includes providing ongoing recommendations and consultation for families and educators in developing and implementing appropriate academic, social, and behavioral interventions for children who are evaluated.
Prior to pursuing her PhD, Dr. Tomb worked for a number of years in a research capacity assisting in the implementation, training, and evaluation of effective clinical practices in school-based mental health centers in New York City. She later received her PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Vermont, where she specialized in childhood and adolescent mental health disorders. She completed her clinical training at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital with a focus on individual and group treatment for anxiety and depression as well as school-based interventions for childhood mental health disorders, particularly children placed within a special education setting. Following her doctoral training, she completed a fellowship in neuropsychology at Columbia University Medical Center, and she is currently faculty in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at CUMC. She sees children and families through the Promise Program as well as Faculty Practice. She supervises trainees in neuropsychological evaluation and psychotherapy and she is a co-mentor for the DeHirsch-Robinson Research Fellow in neuropsychology.
