Dr. Rahmani is board-certified in both general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry. After serving as the assistant training director for two years, she assumed the role of the training director of the child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at UF in 2016. 

She has presented her research at local and national meetings. She serves on the Women’s Committee of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, multiple committees of the Florida Psychiatric Society and the executive board of the north central Florida chapter of the regional organization of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. 


Dr. Rahmani is committed to advocating for mental health and serving the community. She provides psychiatric services to children in the foster care system through the Camelot Community Care (formerly Florida Mentor) clinic and is a regular volunteer provider at the local Helping Hands Clinic for Gainesville’s indigent population. She is passionate about educating doctors of the future, including undergraduate students, medical students, psychiatry residents and child psychiatry fellows. As a fellowship training director, she is responsible for curriculum development for the child psychiatry fellowship program and for the child psychiatry lecture series provided to residents in UF’s general psychiatry program.
