Welcome to The Child & Family Institute, Westchester's only private interdisciplinary behavioral health center and faculty practice for youth, specializing in integrated group and individual cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), neuropsychological assessment, and clinical psychopharmacology services for children, adolescents, and young adults. 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 The Child & Family Institute (CFI) in Scarsdale, NY and midtown Manhattan. I hope you will find this website a useful resource to learn more about 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 and learning disorders, disruptive behavior problems, tic/habit disorders, high functioning autism spectrum disorders, and related conditions.
Founded in 2011, CFI is among the first private interdisciplinary CBT centers in the nation exclusively dedicated to youth mental health assessment, treatment, and advocacy. We are a faculty private practice and have a highly skilled, sensitive, and spirited team of clinicians with some of the best training in the NY Metropolitan area. Our Directors hold clinical and academic appointments at top hospitals and universities, including Columbia University, New York Presbyterian Hospital, the NYU School of Medicine, the NYU Child Study Center, Harvard Medical School, and Albert Enstein College of Medicine/Yeshiva University.
