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.

During her graduate training, Dr. Hopkins 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 evidence-based treatments such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, PCIT adapted for Selective Mutism, and exposure and response prevention (ERP) for OCD.

Recently, she piloted a virtual behavioral parent training program for caregivers whose children exhibited 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 playing on a kickball field, hosting game night, or hanging out with her niece, Madelyn.
