  • Claire Bogan, DO

    Claire BoganHi, world! My name is Claire. I am a South Jersey/Philadelphia lifer – born, raised, educated, and trained right through to my Adult Psychiatry residency all in the Greater Philadelphia area. Prior to medical school I assisted in program development and direct service for several non-profits seeking to improve childhood literacy and college access in at-risk communities in Philadelphia and Boston. I saw that the social determinants of a child’s mental health have a powerful impact in enabling their success, which laid the foundation for my practice as a child and adolescent psychiatrist. As a National Health Service Corps Scholar, I am committed to continuing this service throughout my career. I am thankful to have trained as D.O. (a doctor of osteopathic medicine), which prioritizes a whole-person approach to treating individuals—not simply looking at one system or symptom. This background continues to inform my work as a psychiatrist in helping patients become aware of their unique mind-body connection. One of my primary areas of interest is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which is also strongly rooted in mindfulness principles and practices, and I’ve trained in providing both individual and group-based skills therapies in the DBT model. My other professional areas of interest include psychiatric manifestations of childhood trauma, particularly with regard to attentional and behavioral disorders, ADHD and sleep disorders, and community psychiatry/ school-based mental health. In my free time I am most often found experimenting in the kitchen, pleasure reading, or getting fresh air on my bike or just my two feet.

  • Veronica Faller, MD

    Veronica FallerHi! I go by Vee and am from North Reading, Massachusetts. I currently live in Stoneham, MA with my husband, Stephen, and our 16-month-old, Noah! We love having dance parties in our living room, watching Disney movies, and eating Filipino food. I went to undergrad and medical school at Boston University, and completed my residency at MGH/McLean where I served as the chief resident of the Acute Psychiatry Service. My interests within psychiatry include cultural psychiatry and medical education – I’m particularly excited about working with the multidisciplinary team to respond to incidents of bias in the teaching hospital setting. I’m also a first-year APA fellow in the SAMHSA Minority Fellowship Program. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to train at CHA and learn from the child psychiatry team!

  • Austin Greenhaw, MD

    Austin GreenhawHowdy! My name is Austin, and I'm originally from Denton, Texas. I studied Biology and Psychology at Trinity University in San Antonio, TX and then traveled out to west Texas for medical school at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock and Odessa. After medical school I completed my adult residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center here in Boston, and now I'm settling into my new home here at CHA. Professionally, I am interested in caring LGBTQ youth, family work and ADHD. Outside of work, I keep myself busy caring for and playing with my two cats Alphonse and Midna, playing video and board games, cooking new recipes, exploring the outdoors and traveling to new places!

  • Jooyoung Lee, MD, MS

    Jooyoung LeeHello everyone!  I’m Jooyoung (pronounced as “Jew-Young”). I studied medicine at Seoul National University in South Korea, my mother country. At its teaching hospital, I completed my first residency training in psychiatry. Upon graduation, I joined the Korean armed forces as a psychiatry officer. There I realized that I enjoy listening to and working with young individuals, more specifically, whose early-life trauma was interfering with their capability to cope with more recent stressors. This experience led me to seek further training in psychodynamic psychiatry, trauma-related disorders, and child-adolescent psychiatry.

    In pursuit of these goals, I relocated to the United States and joined the University of Maryland/Sheppard Pratt Psychiatry Residency Program. There I not only enjoyed what I was learning but also how it was delivered by my enthusiastic supervisors.
    During my interview trail for a fellowship, I was immediately drawn to the solid layout of clinical training in the CHA fellowship program, its mission to care for the underserved, and its emphasis on psychotherapeutic interventions.

  • Analise Peleggi, MD

    Analise PeleggiHello! I’m Analise. I grew up near Albany, NY and studied neurobiology and behavior at Cornell University. After graduation, I worked at Boston Children’s Hospital on clinical and quality improvement research for chronic GI conditions. This experience helped me realize how much I love tackling complex issues with children, adolescents, and families. During medical school at Albany Medical College, I saw the incredible impact of early mental health care; I have been excited to work in pediatric psychiatry ever since. For my residency training I moved West to the University of Washington in Seattle, which introduced me to integrated care, academic psychiatry, and the joys of exploring nature with my husband and dog. Professionally, I’m interested in ways to weave psychiatric support into different medical settings and help more folks get the mental health care they deserve. I also love teaching and have led projects to improve medical education for families, medical students, and colleagues. In my free time I enjoy trying new foods, exploring parks, and playing creative games with friends. I could not be more thrilled to return to Boston, serve a diverse community, and train with this wonderful group at Cambridge Health Alliance.

1st Year Fellows

  • Kamal Al-Shalby

    Kamal Al-ShalbyHi, everyone! My name is Kamal Al-Shalby, and I was born and raised in the wonderful city of Ann Arbor, MI. My undergrad degree was in Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Michigan. Go blue! After graduating, I spent a year working with refugees and immigrants across the Metro Detroit area through AmeriCorps. I fell in love with Detroit and decided to stay for medical school at Wayne State University. Then, I hopped over Lake Michigan to Milwaukee, where I completed my general psychiatry residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin and happily ate my weight in cheese curds. During residency, I moonlighted in emergency psychiatry where I got to work closely with youth and their families. My experiences with young people in crises strongly pulled me towards a career in child and adolescent psychiatry. My professional interests also include racial/ethnic, gender, and sexual minority mental health, psychotherapy and psychodynamic theory. When I’m not working, I enjoy exploring nature, traveling, playing the piano and ukulele, working with oil pastels and Palestinian embroidery. As a proud son of Palestinian immigrants, I have looked forward to moving to a city that embraces its rich immigrant history and residents. I also can’t wait to indulge my inner foodie at local restaurants, visit the parks and museums, hang out with my co-fellows, and explore the rest of New England on my weekends off.

  • Jacqueline Buchanan

    Jacqueline BuchananHello! My name is Jackie and I am originally from Austin, Texas. I moved to Cambridge, MA to go to Harvard College and little did I know I would be returning to the area for both residency and fellowship! After college I moved to New York City and did some psychiatry research in Alzheimer’s and suicide and attended medical school at Columbia. I met my wife in New York and we moved back to the Boston area with our cat, Mr. Bumble, when I started psychiatry residency at Cambridge Health Alliance. I have loved the opportunity to get a lot of exposure to child and adolescent psychiatry in residency and I am thrilled to be staying at CHA for child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship!

  • Ana Claudia Zacarkim Pinheiro dos Santos

    Ana FishHi there! My name is Ana Claudia. I was born and raised in the midwest of Brazil, in a city called Cuiaba. I studied medicine at the Universidade Federal de Rondonia, located in the Amazon region, and completed my psychiatry residency at Rutgers NJMS. I entered medical school with a desire to change the reality of people who were usually unseen, neglected by society and frequently by their own families. At the beginning of my medical course, I joined my state psychiatry league and started volunteering at a local orphanage. The fear in the children's eyes was very real, but hope and trust was still there, like an undying flame. I learned more about compassion and resilience during those months than I had ever learned before. Such experiences gave me the basis I needed to start transforming desire into action. By that point, I already knew I wanted to be a psychiatrist, and the certainty that I wanted to be a child and adolescent psychiatrist became stronger. I knew that despite not being able to change their past, I could help those children to have a much brighter future.

    However, I haven't walked this journey alone. My loving family and husband have always been my fortress and my greatest support, and I am thankful to have them in my life. There is nothing better than enjoying a good chimarrão with them on a rainy day. Well, perhaps skydiving, watching the sunset, and listening to the sound of the ocean might get close to it!

  • Timothy Shea

    Timothy SheaHello everyone! My name is Tim and I'm originally from Branford, CT. After graduating from Boston College with a degree in psychology, I worked as a high school math teacher at a public school in Baltimore City via Teach for America. My teaching experience showed me first hand the profound impacts of trauma and social injustice. After three years in the classroom, I returned to medical school at Weill Cornell in New York City, knowing that I hoped to continue working with young people. I completed my residency at MGH/McLean, where I served as the McLean Administrative chief resident, and the Public and Community Psychiatry co-chief resident. At MGH/McLean I pursued academic interests in racial inequity within psychiatry, and taught about structural competency and community psychiatry. I'm also a Public Psychiatry Fellow within the APA and am interested in physician advocacy. I'm excited to continue to work in these areas as I move into Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and also about the prospect of returning to schools! My wife Anna and I are thrilled to be staying in the Boston area, and I'm very excited to be joining the team at CHA.

  • Golda Sinyavskaya

    Olga SinyavskayaHi everyone! My name is Golda and my family immigrated from Kazakhstan. I grew up in Ohio and Florida, but ventured away for medical school at U Chicago. While there, I traveled to Almaty and Moscow to work with NGOs on the intersection of HIV, harm reduction, and access to mental health resources. This experience fundamentally shaped my decision to apply to psychiatry. Since matching at Brown for residency, I’ve realized an interest in psychodynamic therapy and I hope to work with individuals, families and groups, from an interpersonal perspective in the future. I’d also like to delve into the intersection of community-level interventions, forensic psychiatry, and advocacy for immigrant populations and youth involved in the juvenile justice system. In my free time, I enjoy exploring new bookstores, finding inspiration from art exhibits, and trying new restaurants. I’m excited about training at CHA!
