Elizabeth R. Byrnes PsyD
I have extensive training and experience in the practice of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (EXRP). I specialize in the treatment of Anxiety Disorders including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, in adolescents and adults. I use a warm and supportive style, and believe in using evidence-based treatments to address symptoms and promote change. I work collaboratively with my clients, to thoroughly assess symptoms and create a treatment plan that is supported by research, and incorporates the individual needs and preferences of my clients.
I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Connecticut, with a major in Psychology. Before returning to graduate school I spent several years working as a psychology research assistant at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School. I went on to earn my doctorate degree at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University. During my graduate training, I worked as a research therapist on multiple studies through Columbia University Medical Center and NYSPI. I completed an APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at Zucker Hillside Hospital, Northwell Health. Following graduation I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Cognitive and Behavioral Consultants (CBC).
