About Hod Tamir
After a decade working with global mental health, Dr. Hod Tamir recognized fundamental challenges to mental health and wellbeing. Patients faced immense stigma and healthcare was often compartmentalized to an individual diagnosis as opposed to addressing the whole person. WiSR was designed to move beyond the narrow view of mental health and uses a broad multi-faceted approach to health and wellness. In addition to clinical interventions, WISR includes community, fitness, nutrition, nature, meditation and spirituality to reach optimum health and wellbeing. Above all else, WiSR is is a judgement-free space to share, heal, and grow. Hod is a developmental psychologist and licensed mental health counselor. He completed his postdoctoral training fellowship at ICAP-Columbia University Medical Center. In 2015, Hod was selected for the National Institutes of Health Fogarty Fellowship and awarded the Global Health Equity Scholarship to implement mental health interventions in India. He received his PhD in Psychology at Florida International University in Miami. Dr. Tamir has been on the faculty of Touro College and Florida International University, and has given guest lectures at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. He lives in Brooklyn with his family.

Patient reviews for Hod Tamir, PhD
After a long journey of searching I have found my therapist. Feeling very grateful.
Being a man, it was hard for me to go to therapy, but Dr. Tamir has had a transformational impact on my life, and going to him was the best decision I ever made. Dr. Tamir's a great listener, personable, empathetic and most importantly is wise and caring, helping me to navigate my life through challenging times. The fact that it was easy to set up an appointment and that his office is so pleasant are just bonus's.
Excellent session; referral from my doctor; phone screening was easy; so comfortable to talk to - I often need many sessions before I can open up, trusting the therapist; was able to help me navigate a really difficult time. He was personable, empathic, and responsive. I liked his office - cozy. I'm grateful to him and continue to see him.
Dr. Tamir was thoughtful, responsive and insightful. He listened carefully, and asked specific clarifying questions that forced me to think deeply about some of the things I shared with him. He has been respectful and thoughtful in our dialogue, and he has supported me through some difficult periods. Dr. Tamir responded quickly to my inquiries, was available for phone calls and check-ins in between sessions.
Dr. Hod Tamir is one of the best therapists I have ever been too. He is a great listener, empathetic and highly skilled. I felt completely taken care of and at ease with him. He has helped me through a particularly difficult time. I highly recommend Dr. Tamir.
I've seen Dr. Tamir many times and I believe he has had a profound effect on my life. I'm seventy, I was feeling lonely and depressed, like life was over. Dr. Tamir has brought out a positivity that has changed my whole outlook on life. I feel energized and ready to face the challenges of each new day.
Dr Tamir was extremely compassionate and showed sincere understanding of what I was going through. He is a great listener and offers great guidance without being judgemental. I felt extremely comfortable and look forward to continuing my sessions with him.
Dr Tamir's office was cozy and serene and put me at ease right away. I have been through my fair share of therapists but with Dr Tamir I finally felt heard and understood. He is very empathetic and has been a monumental part of my difficult journey and my healing.
