Dr. Scott Hannan Hannan is a psychologist and program manager for the outpatient clinic at the Anxiety Disorders Center and Center for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. He received his Ph.D. from Fordham University and completed his predoctoral internship at The Institute of Living with a focus on child and adolescent psychology. He completed his postdoctoral fellowship at the Anxiety Disorders Center of The Institute of Living working with children, adolescents, and adults.

His clinical interests include obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder related to motor vehicle accidents, and the treatment of children and adolescents with anxiety disorders. Given his expertise in these areas, Dr. Hannan has been a featured expert on the A&E television show Hoarders.

In addition to seeing patients in individual treatment, Dr. Hannan runs groups for children and adolescents. Groups are for children and adolescents diagnosed with Panic Disorder, Social Phobia, Separation Anxiety Disorder, Specific Phobia and/or Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
