The Surprising Key to a More Fulfilling, Happier Life.

Dr. Anna Yusim has made a startling discovery that flies in the face of modern medical teaching: spirituality is the key to helping her patients with anxiety, depression, and a host of other "modern day" problems. Now science is catching up with her practice, as groundbreaking medical research and studies substantiate what Dr. Yusim and many others have suspected for many years: spirituality is a powerful path to healing. Drawing from the best in Western medicine (and her training at Stanford, Yale, and NYU) , as well as teachings from Kabbalah, Buddhism, and shamanistic traditions, Dr. Yusim has developed a program that marries empirical science and spirituality. Using the techniques she has used to help thousands of people realign with their higher purpose, FULFILLED tunes readers in to the voice of their soul and teaches them how to live happier, more fulfilling lives.

About the Author

Anna Yusim

Dr. Anna Yusim is a board-certified psychiatrist with a private practice in New York City's Upper East Side. During her studies at Stanford University, she worked as a neurobiology researcher studying the effects of stress on the brain in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Sapolsky Ph.D., bestselling author of numerous books, including Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst.

After completing her studies at Stanford, Yale Medical School and the NYU Residency Training Program in Psychiatry, Dr. Yusim felt that something was missing from her life. In her quest to find it, she traveled, lived and worked in over 50 countries, while studying Kabbalah, learning Buddhist meditation and working with South American shamans and Indian gurus.

Her first book, which was released by Hachette Book Group on June 27, 2017, is Fulfilled: How the Science of Spirituality Can Help You Live a Happier, More Meaningful Life. Through richly engaging clinical cases from her psychiatry practice, Dr. Yusim integrates the tenets of Western medicine, psychology and neurobiology with the universal spiritual principles she learned in her own personal journey to fulfillment. The most important point of the book is that fulfillment is possible, and Dr. Yusim provides her readers with the principles and exercises to get there. Dr. Yusim currently lives in Manhattan with her husband.

Dr. Yusim has published over 60 academic articles, book chapters, scientific abstracts and book reviews on various topics in psychiatry.
