About Me

Gila Ackerman, MD

I am a board-certified psychiatrist, and have been practicing psychiatry in Colorado since 2011. I completed my residency at the University of Colorado in Denver, and soon after graduation I opened my private practice. I also work at the Boulder Veterans Center where I help veterans of all ages suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Originally from New York, I moved to Colorado in 2003 in search of blue skies and a more relaxed environment in which to raise a family. Before becoming a psychiatrist, I practiced as a pediatrician here in Boulder, working mainly with low-income families in a primary care setting. In 2008, I made the switch to psychiatry, to follow a long-held passion of mine.
