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.
