Dr. Laura Katie Maxwell
My primary goal is to create an environment where you feel safe, accepted, and understood. I am an adult psychiatrist offering treatment with both medications and psychotherapy. Medications can be helpful, but medicine is never the sole answer to our problems. As a psychiatrist who also does psychotherapy, I will work collaboratively with you to develop a treatment plan which includes the role of physical activity, relationships, nutrition and work/life balance. I treat adult men and women with depression, anxiety disorders (including generalized anxiety, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder), mood disorders, and ADHD. I work with women who are currently pregnant, or postpartum, as well as women with pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder. I also enjoy working with students and professionals.
I Can Help With:
Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, OCD, Panic attacks
Support for Cancer, Chronic pain, and Chronic Medical Conditions
Support for those with a loved one with a serious medical condition
Grief, Loss, and Trauma
Significant Life Transitions such as school, new job, or retirement
Postpartum anxiety, depression, OCD or depression/anxiety during pregnancy
Services I Offer:
I have additional fellowship training with board certification in Psychosomatic Medicine (recently re-named Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry), which focuses on the overlap of medical and psychiatric issues. During my fellowship I focused on cancer, decision-making capacity, delirium, post-ICU care, dementia, and psychological issues that arise during serious illness. I received additional training in meaning-centered psychotherapy.
I completed my residency and fellowship training at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am board-certified by the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology in both general psychiatry and in psychosomatic medicine.
Following residency and fellowship, I worked in private practice and also served as a psychiatric consultant at Rex Hospital providing evaluations for psychiatric emergencies and also for medically or surgically hospitalized patients.
