Who's Who of Professional Women


A little understanding can go a long way. It can also change a life. As a child, Eve Loren Goldstein, PsyD, had a reading disability that was not corrected until a qualified professional accurately identified her dilemma. After receiving help, she flourished academically and perennially, ultimately deciding she wanted a career that similarly helped others. Today, she is a clinical psychologist who has devoted more than 25 years to young people with learning disabilities.

Dr. Goldstein, of West Hills, California, is a director, psychologist and educator at Calabasas Child & Adolescent Psychology and Westchester Child Therapy as well as a co-founder of Child Parent Educator/C.P.E. Collective. Along with specializing in learning disabilities, she is an expert in child psychology, ADHD, anxiety, depression, parenting, teacher training, neuropsychological assessment, executive function training, social-emotional learning, and oppositional behaviors. A member of the American Psychological Association and the 2021-2022 winner of the City’s Best Award for Psychology, Dr. Goldstein is often sought after as an authority in her field by journalists who report for major television networks, newspapers and other top-tier media outlets. Her degrees include a Doctor of Psychology in school-clinical child psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, a Master of Arts in learning disabilities from Northwestern University, and a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Washington University.

Along with initially being motivated by her struggles as a youth, Dr. Goldstein’s commitment to her profession stems from her determination to make a difference within the broader community. Her motto, “Champions, educators, and families strengthen communities,” reinforces her sense of responsibility. She attributes her success to being passionate about her work and collaborating with others who also desire to make a difference. What also makes her a standout is her background in education as well as psychology, giving her the ability to see young people from a whole-child perspective. A married mother of three children, Dr. Goldstein’s personal mission is to help youth to feel confident and be successful in school and the world around them.

Dr. Goldstein considers it a privilege that her life’s work has always been about contributing positively to society and her love of helping children. Prior to her current roles, she was the child and adolescent psychologist and learning disabilities specialist at Child Development Associates in Washington, D.C., from 2004 to 2013. She returned to her alma mater to share the benefit of her knowledge with the next generation of clinical candidates as an adjunct professor at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology in the Bronx, New York, from 2003 to 2005.

Her previous stints in metropolitan New York were as a psychology intern at the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry and the New York State Psychiatric Institute from 2002 to 2003; a psychology extern at the Adolescent Suicide and Depression Program at Montefiore Medical Center from 2001 to 2001; and as a psychology extern at Edgewood Elementary School, Scarsdale Middle School, and Scarsdale High School, all part of Scarsdale Public Schools, from 1999 to 2000. Dr. Goldstein also was a learning disabilities specialist and evaluator at Lake Shore Neuropsychological Services from 1995 to 1997.

Dr. Goldstein considers the most gratifying aspect of her career to be helping to empower hundreds of parents to build their children’s confidence. As a result, she says the children can be themselves within their homes, school and community. In addition to helping parents, she has trained hundreds of professionals in life skills, social-emotional learning, and in supporting children. Having the opportunities to teach practical skills that are easy to implement so that people can effect the change they want has contributed to her own professional and personal growth. Within the next five years, Dr. Goldstein wants to continue to expand training teachers and communities at national and international levels.
