How Can Dr. Hypolite Help?

Dr. Hypolite is a preventive and integrative, Black woman psychiatrist, and she differs from most psychiatrists, in that she specializes in working with clients who have subclinical depression and anxiety. She does not wait for people to develop impairing mental health illness, and she believes in intervening sooner.

Dr. Hypolite believes that it is not wise and frankly does not make sense to wait to treat depression until it gets clinical and causes significant impairment. Once impairment occurs, more costly and in many cases, higher risk treatment is needed in order to relieve symptoms. Dr. Hypolite’s services are designed with this in mind.

Dr. Hypolite understands the unique challenges that high achieving Black women face, from the pressure to be a superwoman to the stigma surrounding mental health in the Black community.
