Shelly Menolascino, MD, ABPN, ASCP, is a board-certified psychiatrist with certification in advanced psychopharmacology. Dr. Menolascino completed her psychiatric residency in NYC at Saint Vincent’s Hospital in 1992.

Dr. Menolascino has been a governing board member of the Clinical TMS Society since 2016, regularly attends meetings for the Society for Neuroscience, the International Society for Bipolar Disorders, and the Clinical TMS Society.
With over 25 years of private practice experience in Greenwich Village New York City, Dr. Menolascino is known for her precise and expert treatment of bipolar and unipolar recurrent mood disorders, as well as PTSD. She is an avid investigator in the evolving fields of electrical brain circuitry and psychiatric genetics, leading to the development of specific clinical interventions in response to a patient’s unique psychiatric genetics and brain network dynamics, including neuromodulaton and integrative modalities. Her insights have paved the way for patients to better understand and address their own afflictions, helping them and their family members put their illness into a larger perspective of how these afflictions are often genetically inherited, alleviating individuals of the personal guilt often associated with these illnesses.
