Talkiatry is currently seeking Staff Psychiatrists to join our Connecticut team of licensed providers as we expand into the market. Providers will have the option to work 100% telehealth or on-site at one of our Manhattan-based offices.
Founded in April 2020, Talkiatry has been built from the ground up by psychiatrists. We have rapidly grown to a team of over 50 clinicians mostly comprised of Board-Certified Psychiatrists hailing from the top training programs across the region.
We provide in-network, outpatient treatment for children and adults with depressive, anxiety, attention and other disorders. Talkiatry does not provide intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization programs. We believe that solving the accessibility issues in mental health care begins with taking care of our doctors . We provide solutions to the challenges that psychiatrists are facing - from a lack of front and back-office infrastructure and support in private practice settings to being overworked and underpaid by hospitals, clinics, and other institutions. Talkiatry aims to bridge the current gap in outpatient psychiatry by providing high quality, respected medical care in a modern setting with modern tools.
We encourage our physicians to take advantage of training and research opportunities at Talkiatry that are typically unavailable outside of large institutions. We also advocate for our psychiatrists to continue their hospital affiliations, research, and conference attendance in order to continue to practice psychiatry at the highest level. Practicing Psychiatrists and/or residents and fellows who are in or about to start their final year of training are encouraged to apply! Please feel free to reach out directly to our recruiting team at [email protected]

Increasing access to high quality psychiatric care is why Talkiatry exists. We knew that to accomplish our mission we needed to begin by building the ideal practice for psychiatrists.
At Talkiatry, that means our psychiatrists are in control of their practice. Our support staff focuses on removing administrative duties, enabling you to spend more of your time on patient care. It also means providing flexibility in where and when you practice medicine. Our psychiatrists can choose to see patients in-person in our beautifully custom-built offices in Manhattan or treat their patients using telepsychiatry. Our psychiatrists also enjoy control over their hours and schedule.
Through proprietary technology developed by psychiatrists for psychiatrists, we empower you to treat the conditions and population you enjoy, building a practice you find both satisfying and intellectually challenging. This is made possible by Talkiatry s patent pending technology that matches patients to your preferences and allows you to gain never before seen insights into their progress. Have a patient that needs a therapist? No problem. Our psychiatrists enjoy exceptional working relationships with our in-house therapists whose practice is exclusively tailored to support patients under the care of a psychiatrist.
Talkiatry believes that psychiatric care should be affordable for patients and accepts all major insurance. As an integrated practice, we have a large in-house billing and patient care coordinator team that handles billing and administrative issues for our clinical staff.
