She has several years of experience as a nurse practitioner in New York City, primarily in community mental health, and remains committed to improving nurse practitioner education and transition to practice.

Dr. Neves believes in an integrative approach to psychiatry that focuses on how medication can help strengthen the mind-body connection. She provides evidence-based, clinical guidance in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment. As a believer in supporting easier access to psychiatric care for everyone, Dr. Neves offers telehealth sessions, enabling patients to receive the help they need in the convenience and comfort of their homes. In addition to English, she speaks fluent Portuguese and conversational Spanish.

Passionate about health equity for vulnerable populations and conscious of the intersection of mental health with social factors, Dr. Neves delivers culturally competent care and has experience working with diverse backgrounds, including LGBTQIA patients. She is proficient in treating adults with anxiety, depression, stress, and trauma, among other psychiatric disorders.

Stephanie currently practices on Madison Avenue, in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. There she specializes in medication management services, supporting patients in managing their symptoms and medication routines as well as finding the treatment that works best for them. She is also excited to support patients with treatment-resistant depression who receive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy from Dr. Woo.
