Cirona-Singh, MD

Psychiatrist in Noe Valley

About Me.

Welcome to my practice. I am a board-certified psychiatrist who treats adults with a range of psychological concerns, with a special focus on working with women in the peripartum period (preconception, pregnancy, and postpartum). My aim is to provide exceptional, personalized care to each patient, utilizing psychotherapy and, when indicated and desired by the patient, medication. I believe that helpful treatment depends on a trusting, authentic relationship between doctor and patient. My approach is warm, collaborative, and direct. As a physician, I also have training and expertise in understanding the complex interaction between physical and mental health, including the contribution of medical illness and its treatment to emotional difficulties, and routinely collaborate with other providers to ensure the best outcomes.

Individual Psychotherapy

I provide psychoanalytic psychotherapy, a depth-focused type of treatment that allows for meaningful, long-lasting change by understanding the origins of difficulties and addressing how they manifest in the present day.


For patients engaged in psychotherapy with me or someone else, I provide a thorough psychiatric evaluation, with attention paid toward co-occurring physical health problems, and the careful prescribing of psychotropic medication.


I am available for one-time consultation for those seeking a second opinion.

I developed an early interest in psychology and medicine, and spent time in college and medical school conducting research in the field of eating disorders, with a particular focus on how principles of Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size might aid recovery from disordered eating. In residency, I was in the child and adolescent psychiatry track, which gave me additional experience and training in working with families and young kids experiencing medical illness as well as childhood mental health problems. Through this, I came to understand and deeply appreciate the central role that the early parent-child relationship has in an individual's later difficulties and resilience.

In my last year of residency, I elected to spend time receiving specialized training in the Penn Center for Women's Behavioral Wellness, where I gained experience treating women from preconception, through pregnancy, and in the postpartum period, with both psychotherapy and medication. Following completion of residency, I worked in a community mental health setting, including providing consultation to medically and surgically hospitalized patients, working in a primary care clinic providing both medication and psychotherapy, and as the psychiatrist in an HIV clinic. I continued to hone my expertise in the areas of psychotherapy and women's mental health with additional training and ongoing clinical experience.

I recognize the potential opportunities for emotional growth and the profound challenges, both practical and mental, that can arise during the reproductive years of a woman's life, and the incredible psychological impact that becoming a mother often has. I work with people anticipating or adjusting to new parenthood, which often brings issues from one's own early life experiences to the fore in a powerful way, and with people who are experiencing pre- or postpartum depression, anxiety, or other mood disorders. I also provide treatment to people who have experienced birth trauma, pregnancy loss, or are encountering an unexpected medical or developmental problem with their child.

In addition to this area of focus, I am well-versed in the assessment and treatment of a broad range of mental health concerns, and treat adult patients of all genders and across the life span. An appreciation of the essential nature of formative, early relationships informs all of my work.
