Sabina Preter

Physician, MD

I am a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, practicing on the UES in Manhattan, offering individual assessments, second opinions, as well as ongoing treatment. The focus of my practice are children, adolescents, and young adults, in particular (but not exclusively) girls, and young women. Every consultation starts with a thorough evaluation process to define the nature of the issues, prior to making recommendations for treatment.
I evaluate and treat a wide range of conditions, examples are anxiety disorders, mood disorders (depression and bipolar disorder), adjustment reactions, attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder, developmental disorders, and post-traumatic conditions. I recently published a co-authored treatment manual for anxiety disorders in youth: "Child and Adolescent Anxiety Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, A Treatment Manual"(

I was trained in the European medical tradition in France and Germany and a particular interest of mine is working with international families. I provide services in English, French, and German.

I am Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Besides the clinical work in my private practice, I serve as Director of Child Clinical Services at the Treatment Center of the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, where I also supervise psychotherapy students.

I have been nominated Castle Connolly "Top Doctor" in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry since 2015 for four consecutive years.
