Professional statement

Dr. Ahron Friedberg is a psychiatrist located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City.

Additionally, he sees clients who are experiencing relationship issues, or grappling with low feelings of self-esteem and self-worth.

Dr. Friedberg’s approach is a multifaceted, holistic one: In addition to providing medication and talk therapy, he also helps clients incorporate lifestyle modifications like diet and fitness adjustments.

Message to clients

My therapeutic approach is to combine best clinical practices in psychotherapy and psychopharmacology as informed by contemporary neuroscience. Rather than focusing on diagnosis and disease, I am oriented toward maximizing health and wellness. I try to help a person define and fulfill his or her potential in work and relationships, while achieving realistic goals and higher aims
