Thank you!** Dr. Kather­ine Falk prac­tices In­te­gra­tive and Holis­tic Psy­chi­a­try in New York City. In ad­di­tion to pro­vid­ing psy­chother­apy, she has de­vel­oped a method of eval­u­at­ing the bi­o­log­i­cal un­der­pin­nings of men­tal ill­ness and rec­om­mends a per­son­al­ized ap­proach for each of her pa­tients. Using nat­ural sub­stances – vi­t­a­mins, min­er­als, amino acids, herbs, home­opa­thy – she is able to min­i­mize (and some­times elim­i­nate) the need for psy­chi­atric med­ica­tions. She has a long­stand­ing in­ter­est in spir­i­tu­al­ity and, when ap­pro­pri­ate, teaches breath­ing and med­i­ta­tion prac­tices to her pa­tients to help them bet­ter deal with their emo­tions and de­velop com­pas­sion. She is board cer­ti­fied by the Amer­i­can Board of Psy­chi­a­try and Neu­rol­ogy and the Amer­i­can Board of In­te­gra­tive Holis­tic Med­i­cine (ABIHM). Dr. Falk is a sought after lec­turer for med­ical and psy­chi­atric con­fer­ences, on such top­ics as psy­chi­atric ill­ness, in­te­gra­tive psy­chi­a­try, the role of thy­roid and adrenal hor­mones in de­pres­sion and other psy­chi­atric ill­nesses. She cur­rently lec­tures on In­te­gra­tive Psy­chi­a­try at Mount Sinai Med­ical Cen­ter. She also serves as co-chair of the In­te­gra­tive Psy­chi­a­try Task Force of the Amer­i­can Psy­chi­atric As­so­ci­a­tion, New York County Dis­trict Branch. Be­fore join­ing Mt Sinai, she was on the fac­ulty of New York State Psy­chi­atric In­sti­tute/Co­lum­bia Uni­ver­sity Col­lege of Physi­cians and Sur­geons for 25 years. In 1985, she founded The Pro­ject for Psy­chi­atric Out­reach to the Homele

I cannot recommend Dr. Falk highly enough. When I say she has changed my life, it is not an understatement. She was kind & flexible enough to see me for a same day appt, & within 1 week I was feelingmuch better. After a month, I feel like a totally different human being. I am so grateful to her. She is warm, wise, tough & fabulous.

Fantastic. I judge a psychiatrist by how many epiphanies I have per session. I want to move forward with Dr. Falk, I had at least one every session an I was clear about what actions I needed to take in order to change my life.

Dr. Falk has been there for me through very difficult times in my life. She has an uncanny ability to understand complex situations quickly, so that on numerous occasions and crises, she has been able to support me to recognize andmake the critical choices I've faced. I don't know where I would be now without her astute, compassionate and professional guidance. Seeing her in an ongoing way is an investment in my happiness. She helps me be more the person I want to be in the world. She helps me clarify what I truly value, recognize my particular gifts, and become more aware of my blind spots. I am continually surprised as I discover new and rich facets of myself, and I am grateful for the work Dr. Falk and I continue to do together.
