    Cynthia Spellman, MD

What fascinates me most about what I do is the power and the spirituality of human emotion.  I was determined from an early age to figure out how it all worked, realizing that by becoming a psychiatrist I could play a part in positive change.


I had the opportunity to study Medicine in Europe at the University of Brussels after which I did my Residency Training in Psychiatry at the St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital Center in NYC.


Over the years in practice I have trained in multiple domains including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Spiritual Companionship, and Directing in the Ignatian Tradition, as well as Focusing Oriented Psychotherapy.


I am Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (in Psychiatry). I am also certified by the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine.


Certified as well by The Focusing Institute in New York as a Focusing Oriented Therapist, I have learned not only how to listen well but also how to help others to focus on the rich resources of feelings that drive their moods and behavior.

Please see my page on Psychotherapy to learn more about it.


In order to help you more thoroughly by means of Personalized Medicine and Genetics, I have taken several online courses, including a certificate course, Case Studies in Personalized Medicine from Vanderbilt University through Coursera.  I am currently working towards a Stanford Genetics and Genomics Certificate through the Stanford Center for Professional Development.
