Dr. Kathryn Bleiberg teaches and supervises psychiatric residents and is an attending psychologist in the Payne Whitney Women's Program (www.pwwp.org).  She is an expert in Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), a time-limited, empirically-grounded treatment that focuses on the relationship between current mood and interpersonal functioning.  Dr. Bleiberg has assisted in the adaptation of IPT for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder, depression following miscarriage, depression during pregnancy, and borderline personality disorder.

Dr. Bleiberg is the creator of “The Birth of a Parent: Navigating the Transition to Parenthood,“ a seminar for expectant and new parents.  This 1 ½-hour seminar is for individuals and couples who are interested in learning how their lives may change when they become parents and how to manage those changes.  The principles and strategies discussed by Dr. Bleiberg derive directly from IPT, which has been found to be effective in treating pregnancy-related mood disorders.  For additional information and to register for the seminar, please contact Dr. Bleiberg directly.

Dr. Bleiberg received her undergraduate degree from Brandeis University and her doctorate in clinical psychology from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies at Adelphi University.
