Dr. Ranu Boppana, MD
As a Board Certified Adult and Child Psychiatrist I believe in applying the latest evidence-based treatments. But I also believe in being mindful of the whole person, their environment, and the mind-body connection. I have extensive experience in psychopharmacology and many different types of therapy. As an interactive, solution-focused clinician, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients address current life challenges and long-standing issues. With compassion and understanding, I help individuals find resolution to a wide range of personal concerns and psychological issues to incorporate what is most helpful for each individual. I believe that everyone is unique and complex and am committed to taking the time to find what works for each client.
A developmental perspective is helpful in working with patients of all ages but as a Child Psychiatrist I'm very mindful of the need to assess a child or adolescent's developmental functioning along with their symptoms to determine how it impacts his or her functioning at school, with peers and within the family. I also believe it is essential to work with families in order to fully help the child or adolescent. And with parental consent, I work cooperatively with the school to help a child get back on track.
I am also a Clinical Instructor at the NYU Child Study Center and the NYU Department of Psychiatry. Recently, I was honored to be included in the Consumer Research Council of America's "Guide to America's Top Psychiatrists 2010".
