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.

Verified Patient Reviews
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 and make 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.
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.
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 feeling much better. After a month, I feel like a totally different human being. I am so grateful to her. She is warm, wise, tough & fabulous.
