Improving care. Changing lives.

Anne Cangello, Psy.D.

Clinical Director of the Manville School

Anne Cangello is new to the role of Manville School’s Clinical Director.  Dr. Cangello’s primary focus since coming to Manville has been to integrate two new evidenced-based models of care that will support the needs of our students and families, while maintaining the quality and efficacy of clinical services we offer.

In addition to many years of experience in direct clinical care with children and families, Dr. Cangello also has experience in program development, clinical supervision and training, and in administrative work through her previous employer in Syracuse, NY. She has conducted numerous trainings for a wide variety of audiences in the Syracuse region. Topics on which she has presented include working with high-risk teens, and the effective communication between schools and parents. Dr. Cangello also provided in-house consultation within the hospital system in Syracuse in order to help nursing staff better understand and care for psychiatrically impaired youth admitted to medical units.

Dr. Cangello completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at University of Hartford, and her predoctoral internship at Hutchings Psychiatric Center in Syracuse. Her doctoral dissertation project was the development of a training manual for direct care staff working with youth in milieu settings (such as the one at Manville). Prior to coming to Manville, Dr. Cangello worked in hospital, residential, and outpatient settings with youth and families, focusing on the assessment and treatment of significant mental health problems.  Dr. Cangello’s background in milieu care, trauma and foster care work, assessment, and consultation are the pillars that support the growth and development of the clinical department at Manville.
