About Jan Weiner Ph.D.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist practicing in the Murray Hill neighborhood of New York City. I work with persons ages 18+ who have trouble coping with anxiety, depression, relationship, and other interpersonal issues. I work primarily within the Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy orientation (CBT), using empirically supported treatments.
I specialize in helping people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). I have over four years of training with a world renowned expert in OCD and have extensive training in using Exposure and Response Prevention techniques. I commonly treat Phobias, Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Eating Disorders. My work also frequently addresses depression, perfectionism, and personality issues but I am experienced treating a wide range of issues beyond the scope of this paragraph.
My initial training was Behavioral Neuroscience and I completed three years postdoctoral training in Clinical Psychology. I have an extensive research background investigating gender differences in the neurological responses of drug addiction.
I am a compassionate, empathetic psychologist who understands the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship and clinical understanding of your issues so that we can work together to achieve your goals. This contributes to the success of my clients.
