Heather Glubo, PhD
Psychologist, director of behavioral medicine, the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy, New York, US
“Through my training and experience, I’ve found that when we treat a whole person rather than a list of symptoms, overall outcomes can be significantly improved.”
Areas of expertise
  • Psychology and behavioral medicine
  • Anxiety, depression, and emotional regulation difficulties in young adults
  • Mental health for new moms
  • Neurological and medical conditions such as concussion, traumatic brain injury, headaches, pain, cancer, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and issues affecting female health
“Our perception is the lens with which we understand and navigate the world. I love helping my patients adjust their perceptions by meeting them where they are and serving as a mirror through which they can see their world a little differently. This creates the space for small shifts that compound, leading to dramatic results.”
