Ariel Tabachnik, MD
I went into the field of psychiatry because I am passionate about understanding the human condition through individuals’ stories. I believe in taking a holistic approach, seeking to get to know every patient as an individual and not solely by your diagnosis alone. I hope to create a supportive and non-judgmental space in which I work with you to set individualized and attainable goals in order to ultimately help you lead a meaningful and fulfilling life. I am honored to be a part of your journey.
Dr. Tabachnik is a general psychiatrist who completed psychiatry residency training at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital, now serving as Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
Dr. Tabachnik studied neurobiology and Italian at Georgetown University during her undergraduate years, and obtained her M.D. from Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. She has worked with patients from all walks of life and of all ages in a variety of clinical environments, with a special interest in working with young adults and military veteran populations. She conceptualizes both trauma and addiction as dynamic processes that can be addressed rather than a set of external events that happen to someone, and is enthusiastic about empowering and comprehensive whole-person care, as well as responsible medication dose reduction practices when appropriate.
"Dr. Tabachnik is caring and knowledgeable. Her adjustments to my meds and gentle, probing questions and observations always make me feel better immediately and are helpful in my day to day life between sessions. Dr. Tabachnik has also gotten me helpful individual therapy and then group therapy. Her penetrating intelligence is framed in an inspiring optimism and cheerful demeanor.
I recommend Dr. Tabachnik strongly and without reservation."
