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.

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 work with individuals from the age of 6 to geriatrics. I have had the pleasure to work on several inpatient crisis stability units for adult age patients 18-55 years old as well as geriatric units for patients ages 55 years and older. I have also worked in a private practice setting for the past 3 years that I just recently left. I felt it was time to move out more on my own. So here I am, I have come to realize when you love what you do it no longer truly is work.

It's 5 A.M. and the awful sound of your alarm is going off. You want to hit snooze but know you need to get moving. Someone has to wake and dress the kids, make breakfast, pack lunches, walk the dog and get everyone out the door. You pray that extra large cup of coffee will get you through the day only to be let down time and time again leaving you feeling drained. Finally, work is done just in time to rush the kids to ball practice and back home to make diner, clean the dishes, start laundry and be back in bed to do it all again tomorrow. Life is hard! Anxiety and depression creep in when we least expect it.
