Ida Jeltova is a licensed psychologist, who has over 14 years of clinical experience working with children, youths and families. She has rich experience in treating behavioral and emotional issues in adoptive families.

In her clinical work Dr. Jeltova focuses on each person's and/or family's unique profile of strengths and weaknesses to develop specific interventions. The ultimate goal is to coach the family and the child in "playing it to their strengths" and using all the resources available to them. Collaboration with the child's school and other professionals is often a key ingredient of a successful treatment program.

Dr. Jeltova maintains an active applied school-based research for children at risk for failure and trains future doctoral level school psychologists. Her professional work is greatly informed by her personal experience of immigration and parenting.

Dr. Jeltova earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology from St. Petersburg State University (1994), Masters in Psychology with specialization in Behavioral Applications from Queens College, CUNY (1997), and Ph.D. in School Psychology from the Graduate Center, CUNY, (2002).
