Mission Statement

The Max and Celia Parnes Family Psychological and Psychoeducational Services Clinic provides a variety of psychological services to individuals and their families, both in the Bronx and the Greater New York City communities. We are also the teaching and training center of the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology of Yeshiva University. Our mission is to offer affordable, state-of-the-art psychological care to everyone we serve. We accomplish this by providing a wide range of supervised state-of-the-art therapies to a broad-based population, especially those who cannot otherwise afford or access these services within the community.

Diversity Statement

There is also a strong commitment to respect and work within the framework of the religious and cultural values of the clients. The Parnes Clinic works with clients of religious, as well as, non-religious orientations. We are committed to providing services which are culturally sensitive and meaningful, as well as respectful of clients’ sexual orientation and their dignity and privacy. Most fundamentally, all those who provide services through the Parnes Clinic are devoted to ameliorating our clients’ suffering, enhancing their growth and sense of well-being, and always remaining mindful of their social and cultural milieu, as well as their very unique individualities.
