Neena Roumell, PH.D.
Neena Roumell, Ph.D is a licensed psychologist who worked for greater than thirty years with infants and their parents in Metro Detroit hospitals. Her training with several world renowned pediatricians including Berry Brazelton, shaped her focus on the importance of reaching out to new and seasoned parents and especially to fathers, who may have had limited nurturing from their own fathers. This education was crucial in sensitizing parents on the developmental and emotional needs of infants. Her work in child development has appeared in peer reviewed publications. Dr. Roumell lives with her husband on their farm in Hawaii where she grows organic food, teaches families how to grow healthy foods and continues to work on more books extolling the importance of the nurturing presence of involved responsible fathers.
