Welcome to Child & Family CBT! I'm Dr. Adam Weissman, New York State Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist, Trainer, Supervisor, and Consultant. I am the Founder & Executive Director of Child & Family Cognitive Behavioral Psychology, PLLC (Child & Family CBT) in Scarsdale, NY, and the Child/Adolescent Treatment Center (CAT-C) in Manhattan. I hope you will find this website a useful resource to learn more about cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and the clinical and consultation services we provide to children, adolescents, families, young adults, mental health agencies, schools, and clinicians in the community. Trained by some of the world's leading experts in cognitive-behavioral therapy at the University of Pennsylvania, Rutgers, the NYU Child Study Center/Bellevue Hospital Center, and Harvard Medical School, I specialize in state-of-the art, evidence-based psychological assessment and treatment for a wide range of anxiety problems, including social shyness, separation anxiety, school refusal, generalized worry, phobias, perfectionism, OCD, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress, and selective mutism, as well as depressive disorders, ADHD, disruptive behavior problems, tic/habit disorders, high functioning autism spectrum disorders, and related conditions.
