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 certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
