Alicia Salzer MD

I am an Ivy League Trained Psychiatrist with over 20 years experience in Psychotherapy and Medication Management. My approach is positive, empowering and collaborative. I find that medications are often overused and am devoted to not recommending medications unless there is evidence they will help. Often it is more helpful to reconsider your outlook, improve your coping strategies and alter your behaviors. Rest assured that most of the problems in our field are treatable so there is ample reason to feel optimistic that help is on the way.

With offices downtown near Wall Street in the Financial District, my patients often work in the corporate world, with the many stressors corporate work entails, including Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety, Phobias, Insomnia, ADHD, OCD, job loss, addiction and substance abuse, eating disorders and relationship stressors. I also work with a lot of mothers and women considering motherhood and am sensitive to the unique challenges we women face be it with work-life balance, parenting, pregnancy, menopause.

I am the author of a book about coping with life stressors using positive psychology and resilience and have appeared as a Psychiatric expert on Dr Oz, Dr Drew, CNN, Anderson Cooper etc but I am most proud of the work I do one on one with my patients.
