Dr. Thomas Sedlock is a board-certified adult psychiatrist on the Upper West Side of Manhattan who specializes in medication management and psychotherapy. The majority of his clients are in their late 20s, 30s, and early 40s, but he sees adults across the lifespan. Dr. Sedlock also helps clients who may be experiencing a recurrence in their depression or anxiety triggered by moving to NYC or navigating a major life transition.
Dr. Sedlock spends time getting to know his clients and explaining how he works before developing an individualized treatment plan and medication suggestions. Some of his clients see him for both psychotherapy and medication management while others see another therapist.
During psychotherapy sessions, Dr. Sedlock helps his clients take a step back to identify where their emotions are coming from and what is triggering them. He also asks them to pay more attention to their emotions between sessions to better understand when they occur. Dr. Sedlock has a deep understanding of how to utilize medication to help individuals better manage their emotions, so they can start to dig deep and explore why their symptoms are occurring. Dr. Sedlock’s treatment approach is grounded in Psychodynamic Therapy, but he also utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other behavioral techniques when appropriate.
Dr. Sedlock is dedicated to not just helping his clients manage their symptoms but also helping them better understand who they are and what triggers their emotions. He looks forward to meeting you at his office near the 86th. Street subway station.
