About Jocelyn W. Charnas, Ph.D.

A licensed clinical psychologist practicing in New York City, Dr. Charnas received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and a master’s degree and doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Adelphi University. It was not until her own engagement, that Dr. Charnas realized the few resources available for couples to address emotional and psychological needs that often accompany the journey to “I Do.” Designing a program based on her work with newlyweds in her practice and her own experience as a bride-to-be, Dr. Charnas identified strategies and skills that, if incorporated into a relationship early on, can lay the foundation for improved communication, effective problem solving, and emotional connectedness for the engagement period and beyond. As a result, she has received numerous recognitions and coined her nickname as “The Wedding Doctor.”
