Anna Yusim

Board-Certified Psychiatrist, Author, Speaker and Filmmaker

Dr. Anna Yusim, MD, is a Board-Certified Psychiatrist, Author, Speaker and Filmmaker. As a psychiatrist in private practice in New York City, Dr. Yusim has helped over 1,000 patients to live happier, more meaningful lives.

Dr. Yusim completed her undergraduate education at Stanford University, where she studied Biology and Philosophy. She worked as a neuroscience researcher in the laboratory of Robert Sapolsky, where she studied the effects of stress on the brain. Dr. Yusim then graduated from Yale Medical School and did her psychiatry residency at NYU. She has lived, worked and traveled in over 50 countries on 6 continents and has presented at numerous medical conferences all over the world. She has won many awards and distinctions in her profession and has over 60 publications on various topics in psychiatry (complete listing attached separately).

Dr. Yusim is the author of Fulfilled: How the Science of Spirituality Helps You Live a Happier, More Meaningful Life. She is the Creator and Executive Producer of An Open Mind, a documentary film about the convergence of medicine and spirituality. Through her own life and her work with patients, Dr. Yusim made a startling discovery that flies in the face of modern medical training: spirituality can be the key to helping many patients heal from anxiety, depression, addiction and a host of other “modern day” problems. Now science is catching up with her practice, as groundbreaking medical research and studies substantiate what Dr. Yusim and others have suspected for years: spirituality is a powerful path to healing. In her work, Dr. Yusim draws from the best of Western medicine as well as the teachings of Kabbalah, Buddhism and shamanism to create a revolutionary approach that marries empirical science and spirituality.
