Dr. Emily Stimson is a clinical psychologist in Midtown, Manhattan who specializes in working with college and graduate students, as well as adults with anxiety and/or depression or are navigating relationships and/or life transitions. She is also comfortable providing LGBTQ-affirmative care.
While Dr. Stimson’s treatment approach is grounded in Psychodynamic psychotherapy, she also incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) when she feels it will be helpful for the client. In her work, she is more interested in working with clients on better understanding their families and the systems they exist in, rather than targeting specific symptoms. She also provides sex therapy, where the style is much more structured and behavioral.
Dr. Stimson is passionate about the work she does and wants to help her clients get to the root of their problems rather than just addressing their symptoms. She received her PsyD from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and her BA from Cornell University.
