Author bio: Madeleine Boskovitz, PhD, began her journey into the formal study of psychology during her forties. She obtained her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of Houston, and now has over 20 years of experience counseling clients of all ages. From working in under-served areas, schools, rural locales, hospitals, and inner-city situations, to private practice and university teaching engagements, she has connected with people from many different settings and backgrounds.

Prior to her formal studies in psychology, Dr. Boskovitz was initially inspired by renowned French psychiatrist and pediatrician Francoise Dolto, MD, the self-proclaimed “doctor of child-rearing,” Dr. Boskovitz was drawn to the next stage of life: adolescence and the transition between childhood and adulthood. She considers those years as the most important developmental stage in preparing consciously for one’s future.

In each of her engagements, Dr. Madeleine Boskovitz has found teens and adults, young and old, yearning to understand themselves, feel capable of managing their behavior, be able to make sound and insightful decisions that work for them, and eager to follow their dreams. She helps her patients and readers become empowered to realize who they are and discover who they want to become; they go on to lead successful lives!
