Alana Mendelsohn, MD, PhD
Empowering patients to be active and informed participants in
personalized, evidence-based treatment
Dr. Mendelsohn is a Columbia University trained and affiliated psychiatrist and neuroscientist. She works with adults in both medication management and psychotherapy, with a particular focus on mood and anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Her practice strives to take a warm, collaborative, and non-judgmental stance to create individualized treatment plans for each patient, incorporating medication and/or psychotherapy as appropriate. Her treatment approach draws from multiple perspectives in psychiatry, including psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness and neuroscience.
In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Mendelsohn is a research fellow at Columbia’s Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute studying the organization of regulatory brain circuits that underly many psychiatric and movement disorders. She also has a longstanding interest in the arts and co-founded a non-profit organization, Creatives Care, aimed at helping artists find affordable mental health care.
