Dr. Emily Nichols, PsyD, Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Emily Nichols, PsyD, is a postdoctoral fellow at BPS. She earned her master’s degree and her doctorate in School Psychology from St. John’s University, her bachelor’s degree from The George Washington University, and has received training in a variety of school and clinical settings. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at The School at Columbia University, an independent K-8 school in the city.

During her graduate training, Dr. Nichols completed her clinical externship in the Anxiety Disorders Center at Child Mind Institute where she provided CBT for children and adolescents with anxiety and depression. She is experienced in delivering PCIT-SM, an evidenced-based treatment for Selective Mutism, behavioral parent training (BPT), and exposure and response prevention (ERP) for OCD. Additionally, Dr. Nichols is trained in the Unified Protocol for children and adolescents. Recently, she piloted a virtual parent training program for caregivers whose children were exhibiting increased rates of disruptive behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

A native of Connecticut, Emily is still on the lookout to find a pizza place in the city that rivals the New Haven holy trinity (Pepe’s, Sally’s, and Modern). Outside of work, you can find her on a kickball field or hanging out with her niece, Noodle.
