Are you struggling with mental health issues in your journey through pregnancy/postpartum and feeling unheard or dismissed by healthcare professionals? That's because most OB/GYNS, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and therapists are NOT required to have any education or training in perinatal mental health! At Citta, we believe that the knowledge and evidenced-based treatment of perinatal mood disorders (PMADs) is the most important aspect of protecting the caregiver-infant bond which, in turn, nurtures the future mental health and well-being of the entire family.

I've been a psychiatrist for over 30 years and have worked in many areas within the field. I trained during the era when psychiatrists still saw people in psychotherapy and treated them with medications when necessary. Gradually, the psychiatrist's role has shifted away from one as a psychotherapist toward one as a specialist in biological interventions, usually medications. Certainly not every patient asking for help from mental health professionals needs medication, but most patients who need medication or who can benefit from medication can also benefit from focused psychotherapy. I still have this perspective and utilize it as much as possible.
