Elizabeth Seng, Ph.D.


I am a clinical psychologist and researcher in New York City who specializes in the study and treatment of migraine,  headache disorders, and chronic pain. I am interested in how thoughts and behaviors influence our experiences of these health conditions, and our responses to symptoms. The goal is to help change thoughts and behaviors to improve health!

Many aspects of health care happen outside of the doctor's office, in the little decisions we make every day. In my lab, we work on understanding how we make these daily decisions about our health, and methods to adjust our day-to-day decision-making to improve health. Typically, these types of treatments focus on changing thoughts and behaviors, so they are considered forms of "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy." Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help improve health in-between doctor's visits, where health happens.  You can read about my research on this website, or go to my lab webpage for more detail.

Patients increasingly care about how their lifestyle impacts their health. I am committed to providing educational tools with the hope that greater knowledge can improve health behavior decision-making at the individual, professional, and public levels. I hope you find this website to be a useful resource.
