Professional statement

Dr. Angel Caraballo is a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Previously, he was an Assistant Professor at Columbia University Medical Center and served as Medical Director of the New York Presbyterian Hospital-Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital School Based Mental Health Program. He is also the President for the New York Council on Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

He has a particular passion for serving LGBTQ youth and persons of color, and offers sessions in English and Spanish. As an out-of-network clinician, Dr. Caraballo is able to go above and beyond in providing individualized, top-quality care; read more about the benefits of out-of-network therapy here.

Dr. Caraballo takes a psychodynamic approach with his clients, drawing from his extensive training in adult psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. For adults with conditions that could improve with medications, he offers the convenience of both therapy and medications. He values working collaboratively with his clients and their families to identify obstacles, find solutions, and take action to achieve goals.

Dr. Caraballo received his MD from the Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo School of Medicine. He completed his adult psychiatry training at the Stony Brook University Medical Center, and his child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at the New York Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia and Cornell Universities. With a strong commitment to his profession, he is actively involved in the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the American Psychological Association, regularly attending and giving presentations to these organizations.
