Undergraduate College/University: Iona College
Major (Minor): Psychology (Alcohol & Substance Abuse Counseling Certificate)
Graduation Year: 2019
Hi everyone! My name is Justin Cohan and I'm from Commack, NY.
I will be graduating from Iona College soon, receiving a B.A in Psychology. I also decided to take an Alcohol & Substance Abuse Counseling Certificate program at Iona as a minor.
Throughout my undergraduate career I had the opportunity to conduct my own experiment observing the effects of different music genres on mood regulation and heart rate between males and females. I also interned on the Crisis Text Line as a crisis counselor and helped people in hot situations into cooler states, which was a wonderful experience that fueled me even more to wanting to pursue a career as a clinical therapist. Some areas that I'm interested in are suicide and depression in adolescents, as well as anxiety disorders such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
In my free time I love to listen to music and draw (usually they're just doodles, but I find it stress relieving to do). I also love reading and having movie/show marathons with friends
