Helen Yu, MD


I strive to provide a safe and open space that fosters self-discovery and healing.



Helen Yu, MD

When setting out a treatment pathway, I work with patients in a collaborative manner, giving attention to all aspects of the patient’s life. This pathway may include a combination of psychotherapy and medications when appropriate. I work in a variety of therapy modalities, including therapy that is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapies, mindfulness, as well as psychodynamic psychotherapy. I have experience working with patients regarding cultural and identity issues, relationship difficulties, stigma, trauma, anxiety disorders, and depressive disorders.

I completed my Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I have a Masters in Public Health from Columbia University and obtained my Doctorate in Medicine from Harvard Medical School. I completed my Adult Psychiatry Residency at UCSF, and am currently in my last year of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at UCSF. I also have trained with the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis as part of the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program.
