Dr. Mehri Moore
Medical Director and Founder | MD, Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist
Mehri Moore, MD brings over 35 years of work with women and girls to her leadership at THIRA Health. Her vision for THIRA was born out of a desire to address the core issues that women face, rather than simply working through symptomatic challenges. While symptoms of anxiety and depression can be extremely damaging (eating disorders being a leading symptom), her mission is to find sustainable recoveries that allow each patient to overcome symptoms and root causes. THIRA’s programs reflect this mission in their comprehensive, unique approaches that incorporate a variety of methods, including yoga, art and movement therapy, and much more.
