Emily Malcoun, MDiv, PhD, Psychologist in Philadelphia
I specialize in evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety disorders including: obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobia, panic attacks, fear of flying (aerophobia), test anxiety, mild to moderate clutter, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and its prevention in the immediate aftermath of trauma. I deliver evidence-based treatment protocols developed and validated in academic clinical research settings nationwide (eg. exposure and response prevention (ERP) for OCD, Prolonged Exposure therapy for PTSD). I also treat bereavement, traumatic grief, spiritual crises, relationship issues and general life concerns. I balance a directive/ solution-focused approach with warmth, empathy and support.
Former staff psychologist, University of Pennsylvania Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety. Fellowship, Emory University Trauma and Anxiety Recovery Program. I disseminate evidence-based treatments through clinical practice and publishing on best practices in treatment of OCD and PTSD, and PTSD prevention. I train therapists seeking certification in Prolonged Exposure therapy for PTSD.
I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments to accommodate working individuals and students. My office is located adjacent to the Chestnut Hill West train station. I offer brief cognitive-behavioral therapy as well as on-going, long term supportive and integrative counseling depending on the needs and goals of the individual.
