Taralyn M. Meskowsky, Psy.D.
Registered Psychological Assistant
Dr. Meskowsky started her career during her undergraduate program in Los Angeles working with children and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), neurodevelopmental disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, OCD, and/or those who were dually diagnosed. The program’s focus included normalizing and integrating those with challenging disorders into society in an enjoyable and productive way. Most individuals lived independently (supported by 24-hour staff), held vocational positions, and participated in frequent social functions. This introduced Dr. Meskowsky to a strong behaviorally-focused treatment paradigm and applied behavioral strategies. Following the completion of her master’s degree program, Dr. Meskowsky relocated to New York and worked as an applied behavior therapist in a similar setting with individuals with ASD, and found the work to be extremely rewarding. She and her husband relocated two more times, and started a company serving families and children with ASD (first in Florida, then in and Northern California). They have managed the company together and served the ASD population for the past twenty years while utilizing the applied behavior analysis (ABA) approach to treatment as well as parent training.
Dr. Meskowsky returned to school to complete her doctorate in 2015 and began her internship with Dr. Kenneth Philipp in 2018. Dr. Meskowsky notably completed her doctoral program in 2019 with a 4.0 GPA. Dr. Philipp’s success in utilizing biofeedback and neurofeedback in his practice prompted Dr. Meskowsky to attend and complete trainings on both modalities. She also focused her dissertation on the topics, titled The Efficacy of Biofeedback and Neurofeedback for ADHD and PTSD. Finding the research overwhelmingly supportive of biofeedback and neurofeedback for the treatment of many problematic disorders, Dr. Meskowsky is currently certifying and specializing in these adjunctive therapies. She has a special interest in using bio/neurofeedback for individuals with ASD, AD/HD, PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Additionally, Dr. Meskowsky has used neurofeedback to enhance sports performance in golfers and enjoys working with athletes.
