She is trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT, and therapies that incorporate mindfulness techniques, such as DBT and MBSR. Dr. Nemeroff received her Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1999. She completed her internship training at Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and her post-doctoral training at the Institute for Geriatric Psychiatry, Weill Medical College, Cornell University. Prior to joining the faculty at William Paterson University, she was the Director of Screening and Assessments at the Center for the Advancement of Children’s Mental Health in the Department of Child Psychiatry, Columbia University Medical School.

As a clinician and researcher, Dr. Nemeroff has a particular interest in integrating complementary and alternative healing modalities with conventional psychotherapy approaches. Her current research focuses on stress-reduction and the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder through the integration of psychotherapies with mindfulness and yoga.
