Deborah Zolot – BA(Psych), PhD, MAPS, MAHPRA


Deborah is a clinical child psychologist/psychotherapist who specialises in working with children, adolescents, and their families.

Deborah received her doctorate and clinical training from the New York University Child/School Psychology Program. She practised in New York City for several years in a variety of public and private settings including outpatient mental health clinics, a psychiatric emergency room, schools, and a day treatment program. During this period she gained extensive experience helping children and families from diverse backgrounds with a range of emotional problems.

Deborah moved to Sydney in 2007, where she has been practicing privately for the past 10 years. Deborah helps children, adolescents, parents, and adults with a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, behaviour problems, family conflict and disruption, relationship problems, trauma, grief and loss, and struggles with life transitions.

Deborah believes that there is important meaning beneath an individual’s behaviours and symptoms and she helps her clients move towards a better understanding of themselves in order to heal and cope more effectively. Deborah also works collaboratively with parents; she supports them by broadening their understanding of their child’s difficulties and providing practical interventions, with the aim of helping their child become developmentally on-track.
