Professional statement

Dr. Ahron Friedberg is a psychiatrist located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York City. He specializes in depression, anxiety, and trauma, as well as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and eating disorders including anorexia and bulimia. 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. Depending on the needs of his clients, he uses therapy approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), existential therapy, and psychoanalysis. He also incorporates executive coaching, leadership training, and mentorship into his work.

In addition to his private practice, Dr. Friedberg is also a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai. His office is located near the Yorkville neighborhood, with easy access to the 4, 5, and 6 and the M, Q, and R trains. He looks forward to welcoming you there.

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
