Professional statement

Dr. Tiffany Hwang is a reproductive psychiatrist based in Menlo Park and serving the San Francisco Bay Area. She is seeing patients throughout California through online video visits. She works with women throughout the life cycle and specializes in working with patients who are struggling with depression, anxiety and insomnia throughout pregnancy and postpartum as well a pre-conception planning for patients who want to optimize their psychiatric medications for pregnancy.

Dr. Hwang provides both medication management in conjunction with your weekly therapist and combined weekly medication management and psychotherapy. She is trained in psychodynamic therapy, which is a long-term therapy focused on uncovering your patterns and behaviors, considering their origins, and helping you to understand what makes you behave and react in the ways that you do. In understand and making these connections, we can move beyond them controlling your decisions and instead allow you to have agency of your own life.

Dr. Hwang completed her undergraduate training at the University of Pennsylvania where she graduated magna cum laude with an honors in biology. She then completed her medical school training at the University of Southern California (USC) where colleagues elected her to the Gold Humanism Honor Society (awarded to "colleagues who you would want taking care of your own family"). After that, she completed her psychiatry residency training at University of California San Diego (UCSD) where she also completed a Chief Residency year and training at the UCSD Women's Reproductive Mental Health Clinic.


Message to clients

Welcome! My approach to working with patients is very collaborative. I emphasize listening to my patients and understanding their journey to craft a unique treatment plan supported by my clinical expertise and the evidence-based data. The journey to getting well can be challenging but my goal is 100% symptom remission. I work toward that goal with each of my patients and share in their joy when they announce "I feel like myself again".

Head over to my website to learn more about my practice, schedule a free phone call or to book an initial appointment. You can also schedule a free phone call here on Zencare.

I hope to speak with you soon!
