Emily Malcoun, MDiv, PhD, Psychologist in Philadelphia
I specialize in short-term evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral therapy for the anxiety disorders. Sub-specialities: obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and PTSD prevention in the immediate aftermath of trauma. I deliver evidence-based treatments developed in academic clinical research settings nationwide (eg. Exposure and Ritual prevention (ERP) for OCD; Prolonged Exposure therapy for PTSD). I disseminate evidence-based treatments (EBT's) through clinical practice, training therapists in EBT's, media work, and publishing on best practices in treatment of OCD and PTSD. I balance a directive/solution-focused approach with warmth, compassion and support.
Pre-doctoral training and former staff psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety. Post-doctoral fellowship, Emory University Trauma and Anxiety Recovery Program. Certified Prolonged Exposure therapy supervisor and trainer. Area Clinician for the Philadlephia Division of the Drug Enforcement Agency.
Daytime, evening and weekend appointments to accommodate working individuals and students. My office is located adjacent to the Chestnut Hill West SEPTA train station. I also offer long term supportive/ integrative counseling for general life concerns depending on the needs and goals of the individual.
