Professional statement

Dr. Susan Park is a psychiatrist with a full-time practice in Flatiron, Manhattan. She firmly believes in people’s intrinsic ability to effect constructive changes, and she is passionate about helping her patients realize the lives they envision for themselves. 

Dr. Park specializes in perinatal depression, anxiety, infertility / fertility, menopause, and other challenges related to reproductive processes. She frequently works with pregnant women on medication management. She also has a diverse base of patients with varied life experiences, backgrounds, and challenges, and works on general adult medication management and psychotherapy with individuals as well as couples.

Dr. Park’s approach is highly integrative and holistic, and she is board-certified by the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. The treatment plans she develops with patients are comprehensive and incorporate all facets of one’s life routines (i.e. sleep, diet, exercise). She believes in focusing on root causes of patients’ psychiatric distress rather than simply alleviating visible symptoms. While this approach may take longer and is not without its challenges, she wants the treatment that her patients undertake to have positive, long-lasting impact.

Dr. Park graduated with Phi Beta Kappa from the Johns Hopkins University and received her MD from New York University School of Medicine. She is currently a candidate at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Education and works as an Associate Professor of Psychiatric at NYU School of medicine.

Message to clients

“I believe in our ability to choose one thought over another to reduce stress and improve overall mental wellness. My goal is to provide compassionate and professional care to reduce stress and improve quality of life. Although I work with both men and women, I specialize in women's mental health and perinatal psychiatry. Through therapy and psychopharmacology, I manage mood and anxiety symptoms occurring around menses, pregnancy, infertility/fertility, and menopause.”
