THE CENTER FOR POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION

PhotoWHO ARE WE?

The Center is a clinical group practice specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of hormone-related mood disorders—anxiety and depression—that commonly affect women who are new mothers, or who are pregnant, experiencing severe PMS, or experiencing difficult menopause. We also offer specialized individual, marital and family therapy to provide support around infertility, miscarriage / stillbirth, or medical complications for mother or infant.

We are a multidisciplinary group of highly experienced clinicians. Our staff consists of 4 licensed psychologists, a clinical social worker and a psychiatrist who specializes in psychopharmacological treatment of hormone-related mood disorders. We also work closely with a licensed doula and with a network of independent psychopharmacologists who also specialize in the treatment of hormone-related mood disorders.

OUR PHILOSOPHY OF TREATMENT

We are committed to making specialized treatment available to all women and families.

When medication is needed, our therapists work closely with a psychiatrist who has special expertise in the treatment of hormone based mood disorders.

Therapy is supportive, strength-based and problem focused. When clinically appropriate, short term treatment is provided.

Marriage and family counseling is available when mood and anxiety symptoms affect the couple and the family. Including and mobilizing the family system can often promote recovery.

All of our clinicians are out of network providers for insurance - we do not accept major insurance carriers.
