I’m Dr. Sydney Ceruto. I am a doctor of Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience & a specialist in Neuro Based Coaching & Counseling. My specialty is in helping my clients recognize their faulty thinking patterns, change undesirable behaviors, develop mental & emotional resiliency, & gain mental clarity.

When I was a teenager, I tragically lost both parents. As an only child, the loss of my family completely broke me. I became profoundly depressed & began suffering from chronic anxiety. I was lost, & any form of happiness, confidence, or clarity, seemed a long way off.

Soon after, I began to pursue my education in medicine, psychology & neuroscience. Studying the mind-brain connection was indeed the paradigm for my healing & growth.

I created NYC MindLAB almost two decades ago & South Florida MindLAB in 2015. I pioneered an integrative approach based on hard science that has genuinely changed the way people make positive &, more importantly, permanent changes in all areas of their lives. My program has debunked all the myths regarding the efficacy of “traditional therapy” & the sad misnomer that you need to be on a counselor’s couch for years or even decades.

Several publications have me on staff as a contributing writer, & I am a proud member of the Forbes Executive Coaches Council, Positive Performance Coaching Alliance & Wharton Executive Education Program.

I have an avid intellect, a keen understanding of human nature, & an uncanny ability to connect deeply with my clients. I am hands-on, accessible, highly intuitive, compassionate & I’m told…..pretty funny!

Living in NYC & South Florida for 20 years, I still love both equally.

One of my passions is traveling, which I have done extensively. I am an enormous sports enthusiast & watch everything from tennis to soccer to Formula 1 racing. I play golf as often as I can & yes, I do take the occasional mulligan. I enjoy dining out & sampling great food & wine. I have one son who just graduated from Princeton University & a French Bulldog named Rosey that I adore!
