I am one of the co-directors and founders of the Center for Women’s Behavioral and Mental Health. I see exclusively women, and I see them during periods of emotional vulnerability. So, really, those can be mood fluctuations during their cycle.

I also see women if they’re experiencing post-partum depression.

And, we really are a safe environment for them to refer their patients to because we have a full understanding of the safety of medications during pregnancy and post-partum.
