Dr. Weisman is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry in the Mood and Anxiety Disorders program at UIC. In addition to treating individual patients using traditional and third-wave cognitive-behavioral approaches, she also provides training and supervision to residents and interns in these modalities. 

Dr. Weisman specializes in empirically-supported treatments for anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, with emphasis on exposure therapy as well as transdiagnostic approaches to comorbid anxiety and depression. She also treats body-focused repetitive behaviors (e.g., trichotillomania, skin-picking) and holds a certification in prolonged exposure therapy (PE) for posttraumatic stress disorder conferred through Emory University’s consultant training program.

Dr. Weisman received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, with a minor in Spanish, from Northwestern University. She received her Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Clinical Psychology from Washington University in St. Louis. She completed her APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at the University of Chicago (Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neuroscience). She subsequently remained at UCM for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Health Psychology prior to joining UIC.
