In partnership with the Williamsburg Psychiatry Group, we offer psychiatry services to New York residents.


Our team of psychiatrists in New York City can talk to you about psychopharmacology options and carefully manage your medications. Our providers devote the time to get to know each patient and provide comprehensive medical assessments. This helps them make thoughtful recommendations about psychotropic medications that are unique to each patient.



What is Psychiatry?

Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that deals with diagnosing, preventing, and treating problems with mental health. Psychiatrists are trained in both mental health and medicine, which means they can do full evaluations and provide long-term care that may include therapy. Our psychiatrists at Williamsburg Psychiatrist Group offer treatment for a wide range of psychiatric conditions including:

  • Mood disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Psychotic disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Trauma-related disorders
  • Substance abuse
  • ADHD



What is Psychotropic Medication?

This is medication that can help you on your journey to healing. No single rule or guideline can help you determine whether you need to take psychotropic medication. Instead, you should make the decision with your psychiatrist. Together, you can talk about the pros and cons of each treatment option and come up with a plan that fits your needs. That said, some signs that you may benefit from taking psychotropic medication include:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, or irritability that interfere with your ability to function daily.
  • Difficulty sleeping, eating, or focusing due to symptoms related to mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety.
  • A history of trauma or abuse that has led to mental health issues such as PTSD.
  • Use of alcohol or drugs to self-medicate symptoms related to a mental health condition.
  • A family history of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.
  • Strong urges to harm yourself or others that interfere with your ability to function. 

Addiction Psychiatry

The Williamsburg Psychiatry Group in conjunction with the Williamsburg Therapy Group offers addiction services in both individual treatment and Program formats.  The Program is a comprehensive treatment model that offers medication management of psychiatric and addiction issues along with group therapy and individual therapy.  For those seeking less comprehensive treatment, individual medication management with or without therapy is also available. 

Medication management of addiction includes:

  • Suboxone maintenance in the treatment of opioid use. 
  • Naltrexone management in the treatment of opioid use, alcohol use, gambling disorder, and sex addiction. 
  • Antabuse for alcohol use
  • Other medication modalities for the treatment of substance abuse when deemed helpful
  • Comprehensive assessment and treatment of comorbid psychiatric disorders that may or may not be contributing to addiction

Individual therapy is provided by a boarded addiction psychiatrist or a psychologist trained in addiction management.
