Women’s Health

From PMS, PMDD, Perimenopause and Menopause, reproductive psychiatry is a newer field that I have taken continuing medical education in from Northwestern University. I am passionate about educating on misconceptions, misdiagnosis and supporting women through the "ages and stages" of reproductive health.

Mood disorders, ANxiety disorders, ADHD, PTSD and Substance Use disorders can all be intensified/excacerbated by menstrual irregularities. If this is not addressed, psychiatric medications may not help with an optimal response. Proper diagnosis and up-to-date treatment options; both hormonal and non-hormonal and collaboration with gynecology is required.

Your psychiatric symptoms may have a medical cause. Balance and awareness of fluctuations in physiology and the influence on the brain are key to understanding the harmony.
