Michelle B. Merrill, MD

Profile Headshot


I am a clinical psychiatrist in a full-time private practice. Some of my areas of expertise include anxiety and mood disorders, relationship difficulties, and women's mental health. My primary approaches are psychodynamic psychotherapy (talk therapy), psychoanalysis, and, when appropriate, medication management.

Outside of my clinical practice, I am continuing my education at the Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research. I also supervise residents in psychotherapy and medication management at the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry.
