The Richard and Cynthia Zirinsky Center for Bipolar Disorder is a unique partnership of psychiatrists and psychotherapists who are deeply committed to providing family-oriented mental health services in a therapeutic space that replaces silence and red tape with effective communication and hands-on care.
We are an innovative New York City-based center with a seasoned team of clinicians who have decades of combined experience treating complex patients often regarded as “treatment-resistant”.
Our specialty is managing acute illness episodes, working with complex family dynamics, and creating a strong support system within the family to ensure lasting treatment effects.
Although many of our patients have bipolar disorder, our approach is highly effective for other diagnoses. We frequently treat patients with major depressive disorder, ADHD, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, psychosis and PTSD. Oftentimes, one or more of these diagnoses are present at the same time.
We offer both in-person and virtual appointments. Additionally, our team of clinicians are highly accessible, maintain close contact with patients and families, and are available to address questions and clinical emergencies throughout the course of treatment.
