Private Practice Clinical Psychologist with a Specialty in Sex Therapy

Dr. Maggie Dancel

2016, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology

American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Southern California

Clinical Psychologist at Nassau Psychology, P.C.

 

 

Dr. Maggie Dancel is a full-time clinical psychologist at Nassau Psychology, P.C. in Long Island, New York. She works in a private practice that serves people of all ages and cultures—but her specialty is individual and couples sex therapy. She also has a part-time position at Bleuler Psychotherapy Center, a community mental health center in Queens, New York. Once she acquires the necessary hours, Dancel will take the exam (EPPP) to become licensed in the State of New York.

 

Dancel earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Southern California in 2016. She chose Argosy University’s program because of the clinical emphasis, comprehensive course of study and accreditation. “The program was focused, and I wanted to earn the highest degree available in the field from a reputable institution,” she said. Dancel completed her degree in five years.

 

“I saw the benefits of the education program after my first year,” she shared. “During my practicum experiences, clinical supervisors recognized that I was well-prepared and knowledgeable. I had the confidence to work in the field and a strong foundation to excel and cultivate my skills.” She noted that the faculty pushed her to succeed. “They saw my potential, they believed in me and encouraged me.”

 

To complete her pre-doctoral hours, she applied to positions across the country and settled on a community mental health center focused on Asian-Americans in San Jose, California, close to friends. She recommends that current students rely on their support systems to help them through the challenges of higher education. “Complete one semester at a time and remember that you are not alone,” she stated. “You have classmates that easily become your best friends.”

 

Today, Dancel is excited to be living in Manhattan, an area that attracted her because of its strong roots in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic theory. She described the city as welcoming and supportive, and while it was a challenge moving across the country, she is pleased to be a member of the city’s professional community. “When I initially moved to New York, I was proactive in cold-calling psychologists, networking and attending events to get my foot in the door,” she mentioned. “Professionals in the city were willing to help and guide me.”

 

Dancel is a member of the following organizations: American Psychological Association, the New York State Psychological Association and the American Association of Sexuality Educators Counselors and Therapists. She is working to become a certified as a sex therapist and attends monthly trainings to attain credits toward certification. Dancel was also recently selected as a “Top Healthcare Provider” in Forest Hills, New York by the International Association of HealthCare Professionals.
