Catherine Shir, M.D.

Asian American AAPI Psychiatrist and Therapist Catherine Shir M.D. in Sunnyvale and Bay Area

I am a Stanford-trained, Bay Area-based psychiatrist and psychotherapist offering personalized and compassionate care.


I meet patients in California in person at my office in Sunnyvale or via video/phone. Request a consultation.


My practice is devoted to alleviating suffering and helping people live fulfilling and meaningful lives. If you are someone who is feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or unsure about how to grapple with difficult thoughts and feelings, I can help guide you toward healing, purpose, and recovery.


I partner with you to offer a warm, collaborative, and holistic approach to care. Together, we'll create a treatment plan that fits your circumstances and needs.  This may include a variety of effective and evidence-informed methods such as talk therapy, medications, mindfulness, coaching, and lifestyle interventions.


I will do my best to meet you where you are, listen to your story carefully, aim to understand what you are contending with, and develop a treatment plan tailored for you. The goal is to help you feel in charge of your life, connected to your true self, and at ease with who you are. 


Please visit my contact page to schedule a free initial phone call to explore if I might be a good fit for you. You may also learn more about my practice. I look forward to hearing from you. 

I am currently welcoming new patients.
