Daniel L. Kimmel, MD, PhD
I am a board-certified Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and neuroscientist at Columbia University with expertise in treating a range of mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD, adult ADHD, substance use, and psychosis. I work collaboratively with patients to develop a treatment approach that incorporates psychotherapy and/or medications. My specializations include psychodynamic psychotherapy with a focus on understanding and articulating your experience, balanced with pragmatic and behavioral approaches. In addition, I specialize in managing multiple medications, providing a careful assessment of each medication and coordinating their interactions.
My private practice allows me to dedicate thought and care to your individual needs. We start with a thorough evaluation to discuss your current problems, past treatments, and long-term goals. We then develop a plan to address your immediate difficulties and broader challenges you may face in your relationships and professional life.
In addition to clinical practice, I train residents and conduct research at Columbia University on the neural basis of human reasoning and emotion. I draw on my extensive neuroscience experience to consider personalized treatments informed by the most current evidence of how medicines interact with the brain, and how the brain shapes experience and behavior.
