Vanessa Carroll



Spellman Hall, G11

Dr. Vanessa Carroll is a Psychiatrist who joined SHAC in 2022.  She earned her Medical Degree from Albany Medical College and did her Psychiatry Residency at Montefiore/Einstein. Prior to joining SHAC, Dr. Carroll worked and trained in varied clinical and academic settings, including psychiatric hospitals, outpatient clinics, college counseling centers, and residency training. Students are referred to her by the therapists at SHAC if they feel they need an evaluation from a Psychiatrist. She is passionate about student mental health, collaborative care and alternative treatments. She feels strongly that the best setting to support students is when the whole team is working together. She zealously studies the research on integrative treatments for depression and anxiety and relishes in passing along that information to her clients.  Dr. Carroll understands that college can be a stressful time. She wants to create a treatment plan with students that can include psychotherapy, supplements, medications, and lifestyle modifications. Her hope is that the insights students gain during their treatment course into how they can feel better will help them feel empowered along their lifelong journey of optimizing their mental health.
