Dr. Hartke is a Rutgers alumnus (Rutgers College, GSAPP). At GSAPP, he received his doctorate in School Psychology, completed clinical training at the Tourette Syndrome Program and a concentration in Sport Psychology. Since 2009, he has worked in clinical private practice settings focusing on evidenced-based interventions. He also has been a practicum and internship supervisor for GSAPP students since 2010. In addition, Dr. Hartke is a NJ-certified school psychologist, school supervisor and school principal, and served in those roles at Shepard Schools, state-approved schools for students with disabilities in Morris County, NJ, from 2007-2018.

Dr. Hartke also sees patients within his private practice, West Essex Psychological Associates, in Roseland, New Jersey.
The Doctoral Student Clinicians are an enthusiastic team of students from the doctoral programs in clinical and school psychology at Rutgers University. The high quality of the Rutgers programs, along with the intensive level of training and supervision provided, allows the students to become experts in the evaluation and treatment of Tourette Syndrome and its co-occurring disorders. The students are the future practitioners for individuals with TS, a specialized area of psychological care with alarmingly few experienced practitioners accessible to the community. The students’ ability to provide relief and assistance to families in need has built the reputation of the Rutgers Tourette Syndrome Clinic, allowing it to become a premier location in New Jersey for the cognitive behavioral treatment of TS-related issues.
