Asking for help for mood problems is often difficult for women. However, depression and anxiety are even more common in women than men. Changes in women’s hormones are associated with specific mood difficulties, including premenstrual depression, depression in pregnancy, postpartum depression, and depression around menopause.
The Women’s Emotional Health Center provides a holistic approach to the diagnosis, medication management, and psychotherapy of emotional conditions specific to women. We offer care to the woman with mood difficulties related to:
- postpartum depression
- pregnancy loss and infertility
- the menstrual cycle
- chronic pelvic pain
- history of abuse or other traumas
- the adoption process
- eating disorders
- intimacy difficulties
