Dr. Hankin is currently conducting all psychotherapy sessions via Tele-Psychiatry.
This practice is no longer accepting new patients.

At New Perspective, the therapeutic approach is:

  • To work with the patient through active listening, supportive and problem-solving modalities.

  • Cognitive, emotive and behavioral psychotherapy is coupled with the judicious use of medication when helpful.

  • Medications are chosen with full appreciation of side effects having the goal of reaching maximum benefit with the least risk of harm.


New Perspective Psychiatry was formed with the prospect of growing from a one practitioner practice to one of multiple providers who will work together in a collegial atmosphere to provide up-to-date psychiatric treatment in our community.
