Dr. Julia Yacoob
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.
