Biography

Dr. Soudabeh Givrad is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in both adult psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry. She did her adult psychiatry residency training at Yale University, and then completed her child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at Columbia and Cornell Universities.

She has expertise in treating psychiatric disorders during pregnancy and the postpartum period, and works with families of infants and young children inparent-infant psychotherapy when families face issues with attachment, bonding, medical traumas, or other regulatory disorders of infancy and early childhood. In psychotherapy, Dr. Givrad primarily has a psychodynamic approach, however, she draws on her knowledge of other modalities of psychotherapy such as CBT, DBT, and IPT. She believes in the importance of working collaboratively with patients, and coming up with a treatment plan that meets the patient’s goals.      

Before joining Weill Cornell Medicine, Dr. Givrad was on the faculty at Stanford University where she developed perinatal and infant psychiatry programs at Stanford Children’s Health/Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Academically, she has been working on bringing increased attention to psychiatric disorders during pregnancy and the postpartum period, and to increase awareness of the critical importance of supporting families of young infants to optimize their development, and to bring a continuum of care from pre-conception to age 3 for families. She has also been working on increasing training opportunities in perinatal and infant mental health for mental health clinicians. To achieve these goals she works closely with colleagues in obstetrics, neonatology, and pediatrics departments.
