Robin Brody, PsyD
Dr. Brody has worked with diverse populations of civilians, veterans, first responders, those involved in 9/11, and healthcare workers across the diagnostic and demographic spectrum. Her expertise is in evidence-based therapies, particularly trauma-processing therapies, including Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure (PE). Dr. Brody has expertise in working with gender and sexual minority individuals and couples generally and on issues unique to the LGBTQIA+ community. Dr. Brody's research interests include PTSD treatment innovation and the role of shame, stigma, and identity in trauma recovery.
Her approach is collaborative, supportive, and authentic. To promote holistic and durable well-being, Dr. Brody considers the interplay of individual concerns within their context and culture. She strives to create a safe and brave space for patients to explore and alter negative patterns, process painful experiences, and grow comfortable and confident enough to face future challenges with strength and resilience.
Dr. Brody received her doctoral degree from PGSP-Stanford PsyD Consortium and completed her APA-accredited internship at James J. Peters VA Medical Center in the Bronx, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at Weill Cornell's Program for Anxiety and Traumatic Stress Studies (PATSS). Before coming to Mount Sinai and the World Trade Center Mental Health Program, Dr. Brody served on the faculty at Weill Cornell Medicine. In that capacity, Dr. Brody oversaw Weill Cornell's Military Families Wellness Center and was involved in clinical research within the program. In response to COVID-19, Dr. Brody was involved in team-based interventions to hospital departments and worked as a member of the Employee Assistance Program.
