Pedro Olivetti, MD, PhD
Dr. Pedro Olivetti is a Columbia University trained psychiatrist and neuroscientist. He specializes in the treatment of major depression, bipolar spectrum disorders, anxiety, panic, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), as well as psychotic spectrum disorders. His approach to treatment relies on creating a personal and collaborative partnership with his clients as the foundation for developing a treatment plan that is sensible, effective, and individualized. Dr. Olivetti tailors each treatment individually by using medications, psychotherapy or both in combination with the ultimate goal of symptom remission and improvement in quality of life. Psychotherapy modalities include supportive psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).
Dr. Olivetti completed a combined degree (MD/PhD) program at Baylor College of Medicine (Houston), with a doctorate in the field of Neuroscience. He completed his residency training in Adult Psychiatry at Columbia University, where he was also a Levy Neuroscience Fellow. In addition to his private practice, Dr. Olivetti is currently a research fellow in the Psychiatry Department at Columbia University, where he studies neurobiological mechanisms of psychiatric disorders.
Born and raised in Brazil, Dr. Olivetti speaks fluent Portuguese, which may facilitate communication should clients prefer sessions to be conducted in Portuguese.
