SUSANNA QUASEM, MD
Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatrist
Dr. Susanna Quasem, MD has enjoyed practicing as a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist in the Nashville area for the past 6 years. Over the course of her time practicing as a psychiatrist, she was impressed that the best outcomes for her clients were achieved when there was coordination of care between providers who were all practicing high quality, evidence-based care. Her natural conclusion was that the best way to help her clients was to provide the opportunity for like-minded psychiatrists, therapists, psychologists and other mental health care providers to work together in one place – the Nashville Child & Family Wellness Center. Dr. Susanna Quasem, MD, founded the Nashville Child and Family Wellness Center in 2014.
Dr. Quasem grew up in a medical family and learned to analyze everything from her wonderful mother, so she knew early on she wanted to be a psychiatrist. In medical school at University of Tennessee, she was invited to join the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society in her third year and went on to do her psychiatry residency and child/adolescent fellowship at Duke, where she was chief resident. After training, she started a mood and anxiety disorder clinic for children and adolescents at Vanderbilt before starting her own private practice as a psychiatrist.
Dr. Quasem focuses on systems, balance, and the big picture. Her passion is helping kids by identifying issues in early stages, so that with some help, they can get on a better trajectory and have fulfilling, meaningful lives. She also loves applying her developmental knowledge to work with adults and families.
