by Kristin Yeung Lasseter, MD

Reproductive Psychiatry Clinic of Austin

Reproductive Psychiatry Clinic of Austin provides mental health care to women and men suffering from depression, anxiety and more during pregnancy and postpartum. We also help women enduring symptoms of PMDD, perimenopause, and treat symptoms resulting from birth trauma. Our psychiatrist can manage psychiatric conditions during critical times in women’s reproductive lifespan.

Reproductive Psychiatry Clinic of Austin

RPC Austin focuses on mental health surrounding infertility, pregnancy, menopause and the menstrual cycle using both telepsychiatry and in person care. Dr. Kristin Lasseter and her staff take extra time to provide quality, personalized care to each person. Dr. Lasseter’s approach to treatment uses evidence-based medicine, and she works with each individual to design a safe, integrative treatment plan they feel most comfortable with.

Due to the nature of reproductive mental illness, we use a consultative care model. People receive care with us until they are either out of the postpartum period (12 months postpartum), or, in other cases, until their symptoms are stable. Afterwards, patients are referred back to their primary provider or to another psychiatrist for treatment maintenance. This allows us to improve access to care for those who acutely need our services.
