 Rebecca Kuhns, MD
Psychiatrist
(she/her/hers)

Hello!

 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

Experience:

 

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.)

Practice Manager

As the practice manager at Nourish, I am excited to connect with new clients and assist in daily needs! My aim is to provide an upbeat, welcoming, and exciting atmosphere for every new face. To be a part of this team allows me to grow my passion and commitment to the mental health field. I have worked in mental health for about 3 years, with several years in the eating disorder field specifically. It is most exciting to see those dedicated to healing and recovery reach their goals. 

 

 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?" - Marianne Williamson
