Clinical Staff

Dr. Michael J. Doria,

Exceptional clinician, dedicated, and patient-focused are just a few words most often used to describe Dr. Michael Doria. As a licensed practitioner focused on crisis intervention and trauma treatment, Michael leverages an extensive background focusing on patients suffering from issues surrounding disaster traumatic events. Dr. Doria compassionately helps patients navigate life
changes and the psychological consequences of their experiences. He is adept at working in one-on-one or group settings, guiding the dynamic and providing effective solutions to challenging situations. His true passion is to ensure that his work makes a difference in the lives of patients and community members he serves.

Dr. Doria is a native and longtime resident of New York. His professional career began with his service in the U.S. Coast Guard. Early on, he discovered a passion for working in a counseling environment and became involved with human affairs. Through his service and education, he became the first clinical neuropsychologist in the Coast Guard and developed the Coast Guard’s Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury programs. Dr. Doria built a strong clinical background with the Coast Guard, supporting challenging trauma environments with personnel on a global scale. He deployed multiple times in support of military operations, including a Combined Task Force deployment with US Navy and Marines, rotating through combat environments in the Middle East. After active duty and reserve rotations spanning twenty years, Dr. Doria honorably retired from the Coast Guard as a highly commended and decorated officer

After his military service, Dr. Doria continued his work as a clinical trauma professional and a mental health provider in private practice and as a member of the New York Guard. During that period, he had the opportunity to work with Delta Airlines out of NYC, where he served staff dealing with various mental health challenges and traumatic issues. He became an invaluable asset to Delta and the New York City community during that period. Ultimately, one of his greatest challenges was support efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic, where he served at the epicenter of the crisis, supporting patients through the most mentally challenging environments. Working in his clinical capacity, Dr Doria rendered inestimable aid serving with the Division of Military and Naval Affairs for the state of New York while attached to the Office of the Medical Examiner for New York City, Putnam, and Westchester counties.

Dr. Doria is an accomplished speaker, educator, and trainer in both commercial and clinical environments. He is an expert in establishing and guiding public policy dealing with traumatic events. He has earned multiple Master’s Degrees in mental health, public health and public leadership, a Doctor of Philosophy in counseling psychology, and a postdoctoral neuropsychology certificate.

Dr. Doria is licensed to practice in New York, Hawaii, Maine, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. He holds certifications as a Clinical Trauma Professional, Rehabilitation Counselor, National Certified Counselor, and National Certified Trainer in Individual Crisis Intervention and Peer Support and Group Crisis Intervention.

In his free time, Dr. Doria has earned the distinction of being the original charter member and founding father of the United States Coast Guard Pipe Band. He is an avid bagpiper and enjoys walking, listening to music, and traveling.
