Suhana deLeon-Sanchez is a Columbia University trained, board-certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. She is a true New Yorker who was raised in Brooklyn, NY. Suhana studied Physics and Biology at Carnegie Mellon University before returning to NYC where she attended Columbia University for graduate training in psychiatry.
Suhana is a seasoned psychiatric provider and woman of color who has dedicated her life's work to providing compassionate, unbiased mental health care. She practices in NYC at her Manhattan office location in Tribeca and is available for virtual sessions with clients located throughout the states of New York and New Jersey.
She uses a supportive approach during sessions that is warm, empowering, affirming, and open-minded. She is a holistic provider who stresses the importance of regular physical exercise and healthy eating as part of treatment planning. You will often overhear her telling anyone that will listen to move their body more and to eat more whole, plant-based foods for optimal physical and emotional health.
Suhana has experience working in a variety of health care settings, including community health, large hospital systems, and in private practice. She has consistently been a leader and educator in the field, serving as mental health site director in a community setting, and regularly lecturing future clinicians at Columbia University before opening her own private practice in 2013.
When Suhana is not actively treating clients, you can find her fiercely advocating for children and adults with mental health challenges and special needs. Since 2019 she has been volunteering her time on the board of managers at the North Brooklyn YMCA where she is currently working on improving access to recreational and social programming for these groups.
