About Dr. Selden


I graduated Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude, from Tufts University with a double major in Psychology and American Studies. I received my M.A. from Columbia University and my Ph.D. from Fordham University. I served as a Research Coordinator at the Obesity Research Center at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in New York City. I have presented my research on eating disorders at national conferences and been published in peer-reviewed psychological journals. 

I currently work as a licensed psychologist in private practice in NYC, where I provide individual therapy to adults and adolescents and conduct psychological testing. My theoretical orientation is primarily psychodynamic and relational, meaning that I use the relationship between us to explore important relationships in your life and help you gain clarity on interpersonal issues and situations. I have also been trained in DBT, CBT, and mindfulness-based techniques.
