About Alison D. Hermann, M.D.
Dr. Hermann began her training in the basic neurosciences, earning a bachelor's degree in Psychobiology at The Ohio State University and subsequently working as a full-time research assistant in translational neurotrauma at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and University of Cincinnati Department of Neurosurgery. She went on to receive her medical degree at the State University of New York Health Sciences Center at Brooklyn, where she graduated with Distinction in Neuroscience and was recognized with the American Psychiatric Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Psychiatry.
Dr. Hermann completed her internship and residency training at Columbia University Medical Center and New York State Psychiatric Institute. There she pursued additional intensive psychotherapy training in multiple modalities including interpersonal psychotherapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, brief dynamic psychotherapy, and group psychotherapy. Dr. Hermann served as Chief Resident in her final year of residency. Following residency, Dr. Hermann completed fellowship training in Reproductive Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center where she developed expertise in treating psychiatric conditions during periods of reproductive transition in a variety of clinical settings.
Currently, Dr. Hermann is involved in national efforts to increase reproductive psychiatry education and training for mental health practitioners, primary medical practitioners, obstetrician-gynecologists, and the general public, as well as local efforts to improve screening and access to psychiatric care for pregnant and postpartum women of all backgrounds.
Dr. Hermann believes in an integrative, collaborative approach to treating psychiatric illness and prefers to view psychopathology through a developmental perspective. She appreciates the integral connections between mind and body as well as between individuals and the social network within which they live. For these reasons, her evaluations include a thorough assessment of biological, psychological, and social contributors to active symptomatology and, when appropriate, include collaboration with other healthcare providers. When making treatment recommendations, she takes a great deal of care to consider the personal preferences of her clients and is sensitive to cultural factors that may influence these preferences. She believes in a comprehensive approach to psychiatric treatment, including complimentary and alternative medicine approaches as well as more traditional psychotherapy, medication, and behavioral wellness strategies.
