Ann Park, M.D.
Ann Park, M.D. is a psychiatrist and coach who specializes in working with women.
She helps her clients be their best personally and professionally.
Additionally, Ann works with adolescent girls and their families to help them during those key transitional years.
Ann blends psychiatric expertise with cognitive therapy and coaching to offer comprehensive, customized care. She helps people manage stress and anxiety, integrate balance into their lives, and navigate their most important relationships. Her approach is warm, supportive, and emphasizes actionable steps.
As a physician and psychiatrist, Ann uses the complete array of tools available to help people achieve emotional wellness. An initial evaluation includes an overview of medical history, physical status, nutritional habits, and sleep patterns: this is especially important as several medical conditions can mimic anxiety and depressive disorders. There is an overall emphasis on both physical and emotional health as mind and body go hand in hand.
Next, Ann provides her clients with counseling, psychotherapy, or coaching using a goal-directed focus. Consistent with her holistic approach, Ann incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and coaching techniques to give her clients the greatest number of ways to achieve - and maintain - emotional wellness.
Finally, for some people medication is a key piece of the healing process. By also providing individualized therapy or coaching alongside any medications required, Ann is able to offer the comprehensive care that is scientifically proven to give the best results.
Ann completed her undergraduate degree at Duke University, medical degree at Emory University medical school, and psychiatry residency at the Weill Cornell Medical Center, where she was also Chief Resident. She subsequently did a specialty fellowship in the biology of mood disorders at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York city.
Furthering her integrative approach, Ann is certified in the Science of Happiness through the UC-Berkeley Greater Good Science Center and studies the practice of mindfulness through the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA.
Ann is an expert contributor to Arianna Huffington's Thrive Global media site.
Her work has also been featured on Goop, WorkingMother, BlogHer, and Good Morning America.
