Katherine Ellis-Hernandez, Ph.D

Dr. Katherine Ellis-Hernandez is a clinical and reproductive health psychologist. She specializes in 3rd Party Reproduction, IVF (Invitro Fertilization), Family Formation in non-traditional Families, Fertility, Adoption, and Sexuality.

Solution-focused therapy focuses on finding positive solutions versus dwelling on problems and negative behaviors. While the initial goals for many clients are often to identify and solve problems, many of Dr. Hernandez’s approaches are cognitive-based allowing her to assist her clients in better understanding themselves and how they think, feel and react to the world around them. This may ultimately lead to changes in thinking and behavior that results in self-awareness and obtaining tools to better cope with health, familial, occupational and social stressors.

She completed her doctoral studies at Fordham University in New York City where she was trained in school and clinical psychology. Her post-doctoral training was focused on reproductive health psychology and third party family building. Her orientation to the practice of psychology is solution-focused and integrates techniques from a variety of theoretical backgrounds depending on what works best for each individual.
