Dr Andrew E Lima

Psychologist – Chester NJ 07930



My aim is to provide compassionate, high-quality psychological treatment to children, adolescents, and adults. I have extensive training in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), parent management training, psychodynamic therapy, biofeedback therapy, and mindfulness-based interventions to help with a range of emotional and behavioral difficulties. I strongly believe in an interdisciplinary approach and will participate in school consultations, classroom observations, and collaboration with primary care physicians, neurologists, and psychiatrists.


What is biofeedback?

Biofeedback is a powerful tool that can be used to help us gain increased awareness of what is going on in our bodies! Through this awareness, we are able to develop the ability to regulate our body’s physiological responses and re-train our nervous system to improve our health at both a mind and body level.

The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback defines biofeedback as, “a process that enables an individual to learn how to change physiological activity for the purposes of improving health and performance. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as brainwaves, heart function, breathing, muscle activity, and skin temperature. These instruments rapidly and accurately “feedback” information to the user. The presentation of this information — often in conjunction with changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior (I.E. cognitive behavioral therapy) — supports desired physiological changes. Over time, these changes can endure without continued use of an instrument.”

I am HeartMath® Certified Interventions Practitioner and am qualified to provide biofeedback interventions. I utilize a variety of biofeedback technologies as an additional tool for helping patients achieve greater levels of self-regulation, and emotional management skills to help with stress, anxiety, pain, and many other conditions. Biofeedback is wonderful for children and has been recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics for the management of anxiety, ADHD, and chronic stress!

Psychological Testing

What should I expect when undergoing psychological testing?

An initial consultation will take place first either in my office or over telehealth to determine what type of testing will be necessary and determine what questions you would like answered during the evaluation. After the initial consultation, there may be multiple sessions scheduled to complete necessary testing. Once testing is completed, a final session or several sessions will be scheduled to provide comprehensive feedback and recommendations. All evaluations will commence with a report of findings.

I have extensive experience in the following types of testing:
