Dr. Julia Yacoob

Clinical Psychologist

I am a Cornell trained clinical psychologist in SoHo, Manhattan specializing in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for adults and adolescents coping with a variety of symptoms and life stressors.

I also have expertise in working with patients who are coping with chronic and acute medical conditions, having completed advanced training in behavioral medicine and psycho-oncology at such facilities as Weill Cornell Medical College, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Institute for Behavior Therapy, and Bellevue Hospital Cancer Center.

I offer a warm, empathic, and collaborative approach to help individuals achieve their goals within a reasonable time frame. I sometimes draw from schema, psychodynamic, meaning-based and mindfulness-based therapies to create a personalized program of treatment to best meet the needs of each individual.

Patient Reviews

I've been seeing Julia for over a year now and she's fantastic! Not only does she take time to get to know you and to understand any issues you might have, she then proposes structured and thoughtful ways to help tackle these problems. I can not recommend her enough!

I'm a male in my mid-twenties struggling with depression/anxiety. Dr. Yacoob has been instrumental in helping me to work through these issues. She's patient, thoughtful and someone you can really trust. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I read every review for many in the field and booked my first appointment with Dr. Yacoob. She has one of the more lenient cancellation policies; I hate when care providers act like creditors and she is not one of them! Being referred to one "quack" after another I finally found someone who knows how to measure evidence based methods with results. Her educational pedigree is ivy elague (I'm picky that way) and it actually makes a difference. I'm so happy I found her, truly every session makes a difference whereas I found with other professionals it's pure bs. If you're reading this comment and you are tired of the norm - I hope it helps to know that your time isn't wasted with her.

Dr. Yacoob is handsdown the best. She has always been extremely accommodating and thoughtful. We've worked together on CBT and mindfulness techniques and I have already seen the results reflected in my daily life. She's is great to talk to about anything and has always provided a helpful push in the right direction. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist in NYC.

Seeing Dr. Yacoob has been a crucial part of my recovery from an eating disorder, as well as dealing with my anxiety and more specific personal issues. Immensely helpful, recommend highly.

I've been working with Julia for a while. She listens carefully and helps you work through your issues, but you have to be willing to do the work too. After working with Julia, I feel like I am in a happier and better place.

Dr. Yacoob is an excellent therapist. She helps me work through issues by giving me practical tools to use "in the moment." This is much more productive for me personally than only focusing on the past. I strongly recommend her.
