Professional statement

Dr. Takashi Matsuki is a board-certified psychiatrist who offers online and in-person sessions to clients in Manhattan, New Jersey, Texas, and Georgia. He is trained in both medication management and psychotherapy to treat a wide variety of psychiatric disorders, with a focus on depression and anxiety. Prior to pursuing a career in psychiatry and psychotherapy in the U.S., he had formal training and extensive clinical experience in primary care medicine in Japan. Dr. Matsuki sees adolescents and adults across the lifespan.

Dr. Matsuki is very conservative with prescribing medications and almost always recommends psychotherapy to his clients. He utilizes a psychodynamic approach to help clients better understand how they interact with the world and how their previous experiences have shaped who they are today. Rather than focusing on a diagnosis, Dr. Matsuki likes to focus on the symptoms. He has a deep understanding of the mind-body connection and takes an integrative approach to ensure both a client’s mental and physical wellbeing are being taken care of.

Outside of private practice, Dr. Matsuki is also on staff at Mount Sinai St. Luke's and West Hospitals, where he is an Attending Psychiatrist in the Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program. He is also an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is passionate about the work he does and looks forward to meeting you.
