Therese Garrett, Psychiatrist
I attended The University of California at San Francisco School of Medicine and completed my training at the Harvard Longwood Psychiatry residency program. Afterward I returned to UCSF to complete additional fellowship training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Earlier in my career I practiced at NC State for over 5 years in a full time capacity, and more recently I returned in a part time role to work with students at NC State.
Robin Kohli, Psychiatrist
I was raised in eastern North Carolina and first left home for high school, and graduated from The North Carolina School of Science and Math in 1996. Afterward I studied psychology and studio art at UNC Chapel Hill, and while there worked in the Department of Psychiatry as a research assistant. I attended medical school at the Saba University School of Medicine and completed my medical training in Charleston at the Medical University of South Carolina. I am board certified in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry. I’ve been at NC State since 2012 where I serve as the Chief of Psychiatric Services and appreciate the chance to get to know and help students.

I attended Albany Medical College and completed my psychiatric residency and fellowship training at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I currently work at the Counseling Center one day per week and spend the remainder of my professional time working at Wakebrook, a part of UNC Health Care. I first worked at the NC State Counseling Center during my fellowship training and after completing my training sought out the opportunity to return to work with the students at NC State.
Jeffrey Parks, Psychiatrist
MD (1999) Psychiatry, Medical College of Georgia
I completed my psychiatry residency training at UNC Chapel Hill in 2003 and have been practicing inpatient, emergency, and outpatient psychiatry here in North Carolina since that time. I have worked extensively with individuals with mood and anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, and substance use disorders over those years. I favor an integrative model of care that involves psychotherapy tailored to the individual’s specific needs, judicious and evidence-based use of psychotropic medication where appropriate, along with attention to nutrition, exercise, and healthy methods of stress management. Outside of hospital and private practice work, I have also enjoyed working in a range of volunteer opportunities since 2003 including supervision of psychiatrists in training and providing medical services for homeless mentally ill individuals through the IFC shelter program in Chapel Hill.
Heather Rogers, Psychiatrist
I am a child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist with extensive experience treating a wide range of psychiatric issues. I attended Eastern Virginia Medical School and completed adult psychiatry residency training at the University of Colorado and a child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at UNC-Chapel Hill. Since then I have practiced in rural, academic and private practice settings. Currently I have the privilege of working with students at NC State’s Counseling Center. I am a strong proponent of the biopsychosocial model of psychiatry, a broad approach that considers a patient’s physical, mental and social sources of psychological well being and distress. This integrated treatment approach includes careful evaluation, psychotherapy, good sleep hygiene, healthy diet, regular exercise, mindfulness and when appropriate, pharmacotherapy (medication). I am also a certified (RYT-200) yoga teacher and incorporate yoga skills into my work with patients.
