"Compassion literally means 'to suffer with,' which implies a basic mutuality in the experience of suffering. The emotion of compassion springs from the recognition that the human experience is imperfect."― Kristin Neff

Dr. Michelle Weil is a double board-certified psychiatrist in Adult and Addiction Psychiatry. She takes the time to listen to her patients’ stories to establish a mutually trusting relationship. She strives to educate her patients on the nature of diagnoses and treatments and how each of these fit into the larger context of an individual’s life. In this manner, Dr. Weil works with patients collaboratively in the decision-making process. She treats mood, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, trauma-related, personality, and sleep disorders, as well as ADHD. She specializes in dual diagnosis treatment, meaning the combination of addiction and another mental health condition.

Dr. Weil attended medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio followed by a residency at Western Psychiatric Institute & Clinic in Pittsburgh, PA. During her training, she was strongly involved with and thoroughly enjoyed teaching. Dr. Weil then moved to Denver, CO to complete a fellowship in addiction psychiatry at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, where she then worked as a senior instructor following her fellowship. Most recently she has worked as a hospital-based psychiatrist, caring for adults and older adults in a range of settings, including inpatient, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient treatment.

Dr. Weil has a passion for combining psychotherapy with medication management to help clients achieve the best outcomes. She has specialized training in psychotherapy, completing psychodynamic training at the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center, as well as a one-year internship at the Duquesne University Psychotherapy Training Clinic. She is proficient in supportive, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, motivational, and insight-oriented therapies.
