Nitzan Cohen


Nitzan is a third year doctoral student at Fordham's Counseling Psychology program. Her clinical experience and interests range from working with children on the autism spectrum, to college students, young adult sexual minority individuals, and women, in particular. While working on her bachelor's degree in Israel, Nitzan had studied Attachment-Based Family Therapy for sexual minority individuals and their parents, among other projects, at Dr. Gary Diamond's psychotherapy lab at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Nitzan's main research focus is on sexual fluidity manifestations in sexual minority women, and studying the intricacies of women's sexuality which have been traditionally absent from generic research. She is also currently partaking in several other research projects studying attitudes on sexual assault, and gender differences in the effects of stigma on mental health.
