I am an ABPN board certified, licensed adult and geriatric psychiatrist providing psychiatric care for women throughout the lifecycle. Women often struggle with mood changes and anxiety related to their menstrual cycle, fertility issues, during pregnancy and the postpartum, and through the menopause transition. Others need to make challenging decisions regarding their psychiatric treatment when family planning. Older women are also at risk for depression, anxiety, and cognitive disorders. Psychiatric care of women often involves a comprehensive treatment plan, with the additional consideration of a hormonal contribution.
