Dr. Elizabeth Cohen PhD, Center Director

Dr. Cohen received her PhD in clinical psychology from Boston University. As part of her graduate training, she treated clients at the world-renowned Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders in Boston, MA. Dr. Cohen was the recipient of the prestigious American Psychological Foundation Research Award for her doctoral research on the psychological impact of 9/11.

Following her time at BU, Dr. Cohen completed her pre-doctoral internship at Bellevue Hospital Center and the New York University Child Study Center.

Dr. Cohen has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, NBC News, Women’s Health, Huff Post, Thrive Global and Good Housekeeping.

After 15 years of working individually in private practice Dr. Cohen aspired to help more people than she could on her own so in 2016 she launched The Center for CBT in NYC group practice. As the director it is essential to Dr. Cohen that she be intimately involved in all session and treatment planning. Clients and team members benefit from her expertise.

Dr. Cohen is a native New Yorker which is probably why her favorite meal is bagel, lox and cream cheese. She loves swimming and walking on the beach. During her free time, she always has a mystery book in her hands. As a super fast reader, she needs a lot by my bedside. She’s a sucker for mugs and tote bags with inspirational quotes – her closets are full of them!
