My Story

Dr. Young was born and raised in the New Orleans, LA metro area and attended Xavier University of Louisiana for undergrad and Tulane University School of Medicine for medical school. Dr. Young came to NYC for general psychiatry residency at Hofstra Northshore-LIJ at Zucker Hillside and child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia and Cornell Universities.

Dr. Young is passionate about being impactful in under-resourced and marginalized communities, particularly communities of color, in both his daily work with the LA County Dept of Mental Health and various community service projects. He participates in, consults on and develops creative programs and initiatives to serve as tools for the improved emotional wellness of citizens of LA, NYC, New Orleans and beyond.  

Dr. Young has also consulted with program development for organizations like Teen Hub Program of New York Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia and Cornell Universities as well as Google, the New York City Department of Health, and the LA County Department of Mental Health. 


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
