Dr. Deepa Voleti, DO is a Licensed Psychiatrist in both the states of New York and California. She is currently a Child Psychiatry Fellow at New York University (NYU).

Dr. Voleti grew up in Princeton, New Jersey with both her parents and older sister, with whom she is very close to. 

She completed her Bachelor’s in Biology (with a chemistry minor) from the New Jersey Institute of Technology, a Master’s in Biomedical Science from Rutgers University, and Medical School at the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Voleti completed her General Psychiatry Residency training at the University of Kentucky, in Lexington. During her residency training, she took the lead in drafting the first and second reviews of “a double-blind randomized clinical trial of Buprenorphine augmentation for the treatment of psychotic symptoms in opioid-addicted bipolar patients” for the Journal of Opioid Management, was author and presenter of a case study titled “Rapid Sertraline titration in Vascular Cognitive Impairment” at the Psychiatry Congress Conference in 2018, and participated in a Quality Improvement project delineating specific criteria/requirements prior to inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. 

Dr. Voleti has a strong interest in education and received the Psychiatry Clinical Teaching Award for 2018 to 2019 academic year during residency training. She will continue to develop her interest in education through teaching an undergraduate class, “Love Actually,” that is part of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Minor program at NYU. Currently, she is pursuing her interest in the nature of consciousness and is the first author in a book chapter titled “Key Differences in Pediatric versus Adult Sleep” for the Encyclopedia of Sleep and is starting a research study on the Pediatric Transformational Experience of Death.

Dr. Voleti is passionate about her own education to best help each unique patient. Through her desire to learn, she has gained experience in various psychotherapy modalities including CBT, DBT, Psychodynamic psychotherapy, family therapy, and Parent Management Training. She enjoys working with a broad age range and is comfortable working with young children. Through her child and adolescent training, she recognizes the influence of early childhood attachments and traumas in shaping overall mental health outcomes in children and adults. She utilizes a trauma-informed approach to care.

Outside of work, Dr. Voleti enjoys the practice of mindfulness, traveling, spending time with her family and friends, listening to all types of music (She plays the violin and guitar!), and staying active (running, tennis, basketball). She is an eternal optimist who is an empath and extrovert by nature. Dr. Voleti loves dogs and hopes to get her own soon!
