“The recognition and acceptance of any truth, no matter how disturbing, is liberating and empowering.” — Craig N. Piso, Ph.D., President, Piso and Associates, LLC
Craig N. Piso, Ph.D., is a licensed Psychologist/Consultant with over 30 years of professional experience working with organizations and corporations, and in clinical practice. Raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he graduated Summa Cum Laude in Psychology from Grove City College, and then earned both MA and Ph.D. degrees in Educational Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh.
His professional resumé is rich and diverse within a general realm of concentration. He first worked as a Mental Health Clinician at a Community Mental Health Center Children’s Outpatient Dept. in Pittsburgh, then moved on to work as a Child Psychologist for six years in a staff model HMO medical system. His next professional endeavor involved a seven year stint as a Psychologist and Center Director within a managed care (HMO) environment in Maryland in what would eventually become the world’s largest, for-profit managed behavioral health company (as Clinical Director for state operations, a total of 2,000,000 insured members were under his direction). After this experience, Dr. Piso was appointed Vice President of the largest network of behavioral health providers in New Jersey.
After years working inside other companies, Dr. Piso felt that it was time to strike out on his own and, in 2001, opened Signet Health Solutions, Inc. Shortly thereafter, he partnered with another individual to create a consulting business that thrived for the next seven years.
In 2008, those companies were disbanded with the formal launch of Piso and Associates, LLC. In this company, Dr. Piso’s in-depth knowledge, rich experience and proven expertise have been integrated into a new and improved business model that, he feels, will provide a truly distinct and effective method by which to better serve his clients’ needs.
An entertaining and memorable presenter, Dr. Piso is an inspiring Keynote Speaker who conducts workshops nationwide in public, corporate and university settings.
Dr. Piso is the author of the recently published book: Dream of Life…Live Your Dream – A Manual of Skills for Living for Today’s Young Adults.
He is a contributing author to two books by Nathaniel J. Williams, Ed.D., MHS, MPA, MBA., having written Forewards for: The Navigator of Life – Keeping Your Ship of Life in Balance and On Course, and Management and Leadership by the 3Ps.
Dr. Piso is a member of PPA – the PA Psychological Association. In recent years, he has served as an Adjunct Professor in the Counseling Psychology Department at Caldwell College in Caldwell, New Jersey, as well as at Penn State University. He has been a presenter at Marywood University, Misericordia University, The University of Scranton, King’s College, Wilkes University and Kutztown University.
Currently, Dr. Piso is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at The Commonwealth Medical College in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and serves as the primary instructor for “Project Success” at Luzerne County Community College.
