 Rebecca Kuhns, MD


I'm Rebecca Kuhns, a psychiatrist. I mostly practice psychotherapy, but also enjoy sharing clients with other therapists by providing adjunctive consultation and management of psychotropic medication. 

My style is warm, empathetic, and often quite direct.  I believe strongly in authenticity and in the power of human connection. I work to learn each individual deeply so that I can help you better understand your own areas of pain or conflict, and help support you as you navigate the way forward.   I am passionate about racial equity and feminist theory , I have specialized training in working with individuals with eating disorders (I practice from a Health At Every Size lens in my eating disorder work) and I work extensively with members of the LGBTQ+ community. 

 I believe that therapy is a powerful tool, and that the support of carefully selected pharmaceutical agents can often be a beneficial component of treatment as well. 





Education and training:

  • B.Sc., Yale University

  • MD, University of North Carolina 

  • MSPH, UNC Gillings School of Public Health

  • Psychiatric residency at UNC Hospitals

  • Board-certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology



I've worked as a consulting psychiatrist in hospitals, have completed thousands of client hours, continuing education, and supervision as a therapist, and I've served as medical director of the outpatient arm of an eating disorders treatment center. I'm a member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP.)
