Maloa Affuembey, MD

Dr. Affuembey is certified in General Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

She is passionate about preserving the unique nature of every individual's story as they navigate towards their expressed mental health goals, meaning:

  • Your treatment shouldn't change the core of your personality

  • Successful outcomes after treatment are the result of your hard work, not just the effects of your medication

  • Choosing a lifestyle of mental wellness is an ongoing process, not to be prioritized only when you have a crisis

Dr. Affuembey works with children, adolescents, and adults to attain and maintain mental wellness. She has experience working in diverse treatment environments including outpatient clinics, hospitals, and residential and community health centers. Dr. Affuembey embraces medicine as an art, using current scientific evidence in treating a variety of psychiatric disorders. She has deep experience in Eating Disorder Treatment of children and adolescents with other areas of interest, including perinatal and cultural psychiatry.

She developed a fascination with the human mind and mental disturbances from her early teen years (growing up in the Republic of Cameroon) and expressed the desire to become a Psychiatrist. Her mother, who worked as a social worker, was able to provide some insight based on her experience working with a Psychiatrist. Armed with this knowledge, however small, she chose to study medicine with the goal of specializing in psychiatry.
