Patricia Pereira, Ph.D.
Dr. Patricia Pereira has joined Bacharach’s psychology department.
Born in India, she worked briefly in Tehran while planning to study psychology in Europe. She earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Zurich, where she had to learn German. Next, she emigrated from Switzerland to Canada, completed a post-doctorate internship, and completed the exams for licensure as a Psychologist in Vancouver, Canada.
“After visiting Manhattan in 1993 and 1995, it was my dream to be near Manhattan” said Dr. Pereira.
Next stops on the way to Manhattan were Washington State, Louisiana, and Texas, and most recently Barnegat.
She has a wealth of clinical experience working with psychiatric patients, the elderly, with individuals with brain injuries, neurodegenerative disorders, learning disabilities, and physical disabilities.
She has been here one month, and is most interested in the longevity of people who work here. “This is a very calm place,” she said. And the transition has been very easy. “I have been doing this over 20 years.”
Welcome, Dr. Pereira, we are happy to have you.
