About Dr. Mueller

Janet E. Mueller received her doctorate in school psychology (Psy.D)  from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University.  Her areas of interest include working with children with behavioral, emotional and cognitive difficulties and their families.  She uses mindfulness techniques to help children focus and control their emotions more effectively.  Dr. Mueller also sees children in her practice who have executive functioning difficulties.  She uses strategies to help make their academic and home life more successful. After seeing an influx of children who are experiencing difficulties with self-control, Dr. Mueller began to develop special strategies to help these clients, referring to that part of her practice as Kids Focusing, Inc. 

Aside from working with children and their families, Dr. Mueller has expertise in working with infertility patients.  She counsels infertility patients in regard to their family building issues.  Since infertility can be such a stressful situation, Dr. Mueller uses mind/body techniques when she works with infertility patients.

Dr. Mueller worked as a school psychologist for the NYC Board of Education for 10 years.  She presently consults for schools out on Long Island.  She serves as the coordinator of professionally led Resolve support groups of Long Island.
