|About||A top NYC psychiatrist addressing an array of psychiatric maladies, including extensive treatment of addictions.|
Dr. Pamela Buchbinder’s rigorous training informs her use of psychotherapies and psychopharmacology to address an array of psychiatric maladies, including extensive treatment of addictions. Her approach includes an emphasis on change through insight. This analytic foundation is complemented by her appreciation of the unique circumstances of each patient’s history. By incorporating a patient’s current strengths and stressors, her work retains the flexibility necessary to assist in their progress towards increasing psychological freedom. Their work together helps patients address obstacles that interfere with the achievement of a broader range of productive responses. Whatever their particular goals turn out to be, treatment is aimed at maximizing the options for obtaining fulfillment of sustainable sources of happiness and connection.
In practice for 15 years, Dr. Buchbinder graduated from Columbia College, Columbia University, and received her M.D. from the University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine. Her internship and residency were at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and the Payne Whitney Clinic at Weill Medical College of Cornell University. Her fellowship in Addiction Psychiatry was at the Department of Public Health, Weill Medical College.
Dr. Buchbinder resides in New York City and has a young child. When not treating patients, Dr. Buchbinder enjoys the variety of culture available in the city, including performances: dance, comedy, theatre, and poetry, as well as participatory events: revitalizing the Highline, community gardens, cleaning up the waterfront, and supporting the efforts of new schools, organizations of doulas, and being a proponent of the impressive power of parents groups ( for example, using a new playspace as a central spot to obtain buccal swabs to rapidly populate a database for potential bone marrow donors for a toddler).
