Psychiatrists in New Canaan

Wendy Elias Wolfson, Psychiatrist  in New Canaan
“I am a Psychopharmacologist in Manhattan specializing in the medical management of depression, anxiety, panic disorders, OCD, eating disorders, and adult attention deficit disorder. My special interest is in helping patients in their 20's and 30's and 40's understand their changing roles during these transitional years. As an Osteopathic physician, I embrace the beliefs that: the body has an inherent ability to heal itself, there is an intimate interrelationship between structure and function, and the body is an integrated dynamic unit of function. I incorporate this belief when treating patients by finding alternative ways to diminish their suffering besides medication.

Vatsal G. Thakkar, Psychiatrist  in New Canaan
“I like to get to know my patients inside-out from a personal, social, biological, and psychological level. Not only does this foster an excellent therapeutic relationship, but it results in better assessments and treatments. This skill was instrumental in my authorship of a New York Times cover story titled, "Diagnosing the Wrong Deficit." I have acquired thousands of hours of experience working with patients in each of these specialties: depression, adult ADHD, addictions, and sleep disorders. Everyone I see gets a comprehensive evaluation (including bloodwork) and recommendations, whether they be for therapy, supplements, medications, other specialists, or lifestyle interventions.
