Women's Mood Disorders Psychotherapy

We offer therapy to women who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, or unfamiliar and uncomfortable psychological changes associated with pregnancy, birth, loss, fetal abnormalities, infertility, menopause or other medical or psychological conditions, as well those who need support during a major life transition.

Women can call the scheduling desk to make an appointment with one of our therapists (984-974-5712).  Please specify whether you prefer to be seen in Chapel Hill (Psychiatric Outpatient Clinic at NC Neurosciences Hospital) or Raleigh (UNC Specialty Women’s Clinic at Rex Hospital).

Our therapists work with women to provide the best treatment to meet their needs. During the initial sessions, we will discuss treatment goals and customize a treatment plan to address women’s specific needs. 

Therapy may include the following types of evidenced-based treatment:  

  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), 
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), 
  • Behavioral Activation (BA), 
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), 
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI), and 
  • Partner-Assisted Therapy (PAT). 

Depending on the woman’s needs, the number of sessions and how often we will meet will be determined in the first couple of sessions.
