Do resolutions really work?

About Dr. Debbie:

Dr. Debbie Magids is a counseling psychologist with a thriving private practice in New York City. In recent years, Dr. Debbie’s philosophies and focus have shifted from traditional therapy practices to meet the varied needs of her clients – entrepreneurs, finance executives, creative professionals -- in our increasingly fast-paced, highly connected society. She is also an entrepreneur, consultant, and corporate speaker.

The daughter of Holocaust survivors, Dr. Debbie’s doctoral dissertation explored the effects of the Holocaust on survivors’ children. “Personality Comparison Between Children of Hidden Holocaust Survivors and American Jewish Parents” was published in the Journal of Psychology.

She lives each day with a deep appreciation of the value of human life and a passionate desire to help others — of course her clients, but also those who can’t help themselves, especially animals. Dr. Debbie is a (mostly) vegan who loves live music and practices meditation daily in her beloved hometown of New York City.

Dr. Debbie was previously tenured at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, where she spearheaded the creation of the personal counseling center, which is now the Student Wellness Center and Counseling Services. She was also a professor at Hunter College School of Counseling MSEd program.
