Sonya_Vieira_M.D.About Me
I am a Board Certified Psychiatrist with Fellowship Training in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. I work with adolescents and adults of all ages at my office in Downtown Manhattan.

I have over fifteen years of experience in mental health, with expertise in eating disorders, mood and anxiety disorders. I have significant experience working with college age students. Prior to transitioning full time to my private practice, I worked for five years at NYU’s Counseling and Wellness Services serving the university population. I was the lead psychiatrist on NYU’s Eating Disorders team. I collaborated with health care providers at the Student Health Center and supervised NYU psychiatry residents.

I also have extensive experience working with diverse populations in community mental health centers: Union Settlement Mental Services in East Harlem, Mental Health Providers of Western Queens, Astor Home for Children in Dutchess County, and Gouverneur Hospital in the Lower East Side.
