Dr. Joseph Trzasko, Consultant Psychologists at Opengate Inc., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in psychological testing, neuropsychology, and forensic psychology.

Encouraged by his parents and grandmother who placed an immense amount of value in education, Dr. Trzasko initially focused his studies on nuclear physics during his time at the Courant Institute at New York University. He later realized that he was much more suited for psychology and decided to further his career in that field. Moreover, he graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor of Arts and cum laude honors in 1967. Dr. Trzasko further secured a Master of Arts in 1969 and a Doctor of Philosophy in 1972, from the University of Vermont. At the start of his career, he taught at Mercy College from 1969 to 2008. Upon becoming a licensed psychologist in the states of New York and New Jersey in 1977, he accepted a postdoctoral internship with the Ridge State Home and Training School for the Colorado Department of Institutes in 1980.

Moreover, he went on work with a number of organizations including St. Dominic’s Intermediate Care Facility for Development Disabled, the Jewish Guild for the Blind, the Orange County A.H.R.C., and Opengate Inc., as a consultant psychologist from 1980 to 2018. Currently, he holds the post of Professor Emeritus with Mercy College. He also received certifications in behavioral therapy and professional qualifications in psychology from the Association State and Provincial Psychology Boards.  Dr. Trzasko became a diplomat of the American Board of Examiners. In addition to his primary endeavors, he also worked at a private practice in clinical psychology and psychological evaluations and contributed as a neuro-forensic psychologist for the Supervised Life Styles Behavioral Health Clinic for seven years. A respected voice in the field, Dr. Trzasko’s written works include “Working with Visually Impaired Young Children: A Curriculum Guide for Birth – Years Olds,” and “Working with Visually Impaired Young Children: A Curriculum Guide for 3 to 5 Year Olds.”

What Dr. Trzasko has learned over the course of his career that has most benefited him in his professional growth is to question and criticize everything – specifically, being overly critical in selecting treatments that work. Starting out as a psycho-analytical Freudian, he later advanced his training in all the major areas in psychology, which assisted in providing in-depth treatment plans for his clients. In the past, Dr. Trzasko served in the United States Air Force, where he completed officer school as civilian during the Vietnam War. To remain aware of trends in the area of psychology, he maintains affiliation with the American Psychological Association and the American College for Forensic Examiners. For his achievements in the field, he has been the recipient of grants from the United States Office of Education, the National Science Foundation, and the New York State Education Department of Mainstreaming.
