Maggie Rodriguez, Psy.D.

Pediatric Neuropsychologist

Dr. Rodriguez specializes in comprehensive neuropsychological and psychological (projective) evaluation services for children, adolescents, and young adults who have complex presentations and do not fit neatly within one diagnostic “box.” She particularly enjoys working with individuals who have concerns about attention and executive functioning, language-based learning disorders, and those with overlapping cognitive and social/emotional difficulties. As an evaluator who also has substantial experience as an outpatient therapist, Dr. Rodriguez is passionate about working with youth who have complicated histories and presentations, including trauma and high-risk behaviors.

Dr. Rodriguez brings years of clinical experience across a multitude of environments to her evaluations. She has worked in hospitals, community health centers, and in private practice as both an evaluator and therapist. In private practice, she frequently evaluated bright students presenting with complex cognitive profiles whose areas of weakness were “hidden” or subtle and often went previously undiagnosed. Dr. Rodriguez’s experience has also included evaluation and treatment work in the Learning Disability Clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital, Bradley Hospital, Bayridge Hospital and the Neurodevelopmental Center at MassGeneral for Children/North Shore Medical Center.

Dr. Rodriguez has additionally spent significant time working with students in academic settings, including K-12 public and charter school systems and private academic programs, such as the Threshold Program at Lesley University. She is well-versed in the special education process and frequently supports students by conducting observations at schools and representing their needs clearly in IEP meetings. She continues to instruct at the postsecondary level, teaching a psychopharmacology course to undergraduates at her alma mater, Gordon College.

Dr. Rodriguez received her Psy.D. from William James College in Massachusetts, where her coursework and practicum training focused on clinical work with children and adolescents and on assessment. Her doctoral thesis centered on cultural issues related to evaluation. As an experienced professional, she continues to enjoy teasing apart and providing understanding of how overlapping cognitive, neurodevelopmental, psychological, and/or cultural issues impact children and teens, and providing meaningful recommendations for effective treatment and educational interventions specific to each individual youth she supports.

Dr. Rodriguez lives north of Boston with her husband and three young children. She believes parenting adds immensely to her empathy and skill as a clinician. She enjoys spending time outdoors hiking and bike riding with her family, practicing yoga, and reading.
