About Dr. Emily Becker-Weidman. PHD

In 2012, I opened the doors to my practice to patients in the greater New York city area — offering them a wide range of counseling and psychological services to guide them through life’s challenges and most trying times.

I received my B.A. in Psychology and Health and Societies from the University of Pennsylvania, and my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Northwestern University, Fienberg School of Medicine. I have completed a pre-doctoral internship at the NYU Child Study Center/Bellevue Hospital and a 2-year post-doctoral clinical research fellowship in Anxiety and Mood Disorders and Autism at the NYU Child Study Center.

 

I'm on the faculty at New York University, where I teach an undergraduate course on Attachment and Loss. I'm also a clinical director of the New York City Division of the Center for Family Development.

I'm a member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT), the American Psychological Association (APA), the New York City Adoption/Foster Care Therapist Network, the New York City Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Association (NYC-CBT), and the New Jersey Psychological Association. I have presented research at several national conferences, co-authored three book chapters on child and adolescent psychopathology, and published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals.
