Dr. Michelle Tricamo is a board-certified child/adolescent and adult psychiatrist on the Upper East Side of Manhattan who can provide both medications and psychotherapy. She has extensive therapeutic experience treating individuals going through major life transitions, those with anxiety disorders, relationship difficulties, or low self-esteem.
Dr. Tricamo’s treatment approach is rooted in psychodynamic and psychoanalytical therapy. She completed psychoanalytic training at Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. She helps her clients identify patterns of behavior that are maladaptive. Through a safe, collaborative environment they can learn to better understand themselves and change these patterns. She guides patients to recognize troubling thoughts and feelings that are getting in the way of living a more satisfying life. Her goal is to help patients realize their strengths and empower them to take control of their lives by asserting themselves and making better choices.
Dr. Tricamo completed her residency in adult psychiatry at Mount Sinai before going on to complete fellowship training in child and adolescent psychiatry at NY-Presbyterian (Cornell and Columbia Universities). She was an attending physician in the anxiety clinic for five years and still teaches at Weill Cornell. Dr. Tricamo believes in the power of therapy and looks forward to meeting you at her office near the 77th Street subway station.
