About NYC Anxiety Control
NYC Anxiety Control is the private practice of Lisa Tischler, Ph.D. I focus on anxiety disorders, life stress in general and associated problems with relationships, social skills and mood. I have been successfully treating anxiety disorders for over 20 years.
I am cognitive-behaviorally oriented, meaning that I focus on how your specific way of thinking affects your emotions and your behavior, and how old habits may compromise your mental health. This therapy is designed to be short-term, with a focus on specific goals. I offer a candid, collaborative approach, allowing patients to feel in control of the course of treatment.
I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Fordham University, Bronx, NY, and received my License in Psychology from New York State. My previous research experiences include a position as an assistant professor in the department of psychiatry at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in affiliation with the Bronx Veteran’s Administration. Within these settings, I conducted research aimed at understanding the biological and psychological aspects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the impact of psychotherapy on these factors.
