About Dr. Ron Cohen
Dr. Ron Cohen brings over 35 years of experience as a psychiatrist and family therapist to his work with Babylon. With 17 years of experience in individual family systems coaching, Dr. Cohen specializes in counseling adolescents, teens, and adults through life-cycle challenges and unexpected family crises. These situations include young adults leaving home for the first time, parenting, caring for elderly parents, divorce, substance abuse, and job loss, among others. Dr. Cohen has treated a number of mental health issues, including anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, divorce, grief, life coaching, parenting, peer relationships, and self esteem struggles.
Working with individuals, couples, and families, Dr. Cohen provides counseling based on the needs of his patients and the situation. One of his specialties is individual family systems counseling, in which he counsels one person at a time through family issues. This helps prevent influence or sabotage in the session and helps him get a more thorough picture of the issues. He also provides mindfulness-based and emotionally-focused therapy and works to keep patients healthy and informed. Dr. Cohen uses his counseling sessions to help patients develop coping strategies and prevent future mental health crises wherever possible.
Dr. Cohen lives in and works out of New York.

Bio and Interests
As a Board Certified Mindfulness-Based Psychiatrist and Experienced Systemic Family Therapist, Relationship Coach and Consultant, I define my mission as bringing mindful presence and awareness to Psychopharmacology and Psychotherapy. I have extensive knowledge, experience and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of emotional distress in a wide range of social, psychological, spiritual and relational contexts. I graduated summa cum laude from Brandeis University and The Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Post psychiatric residency training included the Psychiatric Epidemiology Program of the Columbia University School of Public Health and a postgraduate training program in Bowen Family Systems Theory and Therapy. I am an active member of Physician Support Line "a national, free, and confidential support line service made up of 700+ volunteer psychiatrists, joined together in the determined hope to provide peer support for our physician colleagues and American medical students."
